Dual Booting

Someone call me crazy, but would it not be the **** to be able to dual boot 6.1 and 6.5?

lol, yes, just noticed that error and edited my original post. what can i say, its late.

but yes, 6.1 and 6.5, or better yet, the WM of your choice and who knows what other os that can be adapted to work on this device. the possibilities are endless with enough work.

Re: Dual Booting

what would be completely awesome would be a way to boot into different roms by setting a flag on a file on the microsd card... say juicy and stock, or might and stock, or something and stock, so that if the card isn't in, you boot stock, and if it is, you boot a cooked rom

im talking even better than that. The phone is designed to boot a certain file when it starts up that initiates the boot process. its just a mini computer. I dont see why it couldnt have a bootloader installed, and then the bootloader pointed to the location of the boot init files for the individual operating systems. theoretically you could have the device boot up to a loader, and then you select which os you want to boot, and it boots it. the number of alternate roms you could run would only be limited by how much space you have on the phone. that being said, if it could be designed to install the operating system onto the SD card, you can run as many os's as you wanted.

Re: Dual Booting

That would be amazing! It can be done with standard computers, using a USB drive to load a separate OS, so would it be possible using the same idea to run a standalone ROM from a MicroSD card? I love the idea of being able to boot either 3rd Party ROM or Stock depending on having the MicroSD in.
