    Developer Notes

    Boot Manager is Android's first multi-booter application. It allows you to boot up to 5 ROMs on your phone and switch between them with just a reboot. Each ROM is completely separate in that they all have their own file-systems and all data is preserved on each ROM so it's like having 5 different phones.


    About the Devs

    Team Init 2 Winit Apps includes GFlam from DroidForums.net and Conap from forum.xda-developers.com. We are both self taught Android developers who love to do the impossible, and create original never before done applications such as Boot Manager and Boot RANDimations.

    Conap-started developing rom's for the Droid Eris with his line of CELB rom's and kernels at XDAForums as well as working on some previous dual booting projects for Android and eventually moved on to coding apps for Android. He is self taught through the power of Google search, and by day works in Law Enforcement for the State of Delaware.

    GFlam-started as a themer at Droid Forums but soon moved on to code by deving a ROM known as Sourcery along with Eagle1967 and later moved on to applications. He is currently a student at the University of Delaware and studying finance with future dreams of going to law school.

    ===Update===
    Newest gapps for Boot Manager
    http://t.co/XqPidSb1



    ICS Gapps for Boot Manager

    Click Here

    Forgot this for the changelog
    You can resize ROMs so if you run out of space on your ROM you can just resize the img to get more space

    Explanation for why we can't run install scripts
    Basically we install the roms at /data/local/tmp so the path for say system would be /data/local/tmp/system during install however the scripts in these roms have the path /system so if we were to run them all the changes that those scripts would make would actually be made on your phone rom which is why roms that use those scripts or any zip can't be done the paths would be wrong and we'd end up messing up your phone rom.

    This is good news. I bought Boot Manager a while ago and could not use it effectively on the D1 (the sdcard was just to slow). I am looking forward to using Boot Manager finally on my Gnex! :biggrin:

    If they don't have scripts that run during install they'll work fine things like themes and what not should be fine link me a zip you're talking about and I'll be able to tell your right away but I assume it's just an update.zip that has images in it so it'll work fine

    I'll post an explanation in a few in the second post why we can't run scripts that are supposed to be run during install
