    Well i dunnow if it was 2 but was weird. I cleared everything out of my phone and started fresh and put on the ss rom first because i was having a problem with text messages not deleting, but i was running darkslide 4.2before the redo so when i put ss on i wanted to go back to ds and i accidentally hit the ds 4.2 update and it actually installed with chevys rom that was weird. had everything from his rom plus the ds one. but i went back and put on the ds 4.1 then the update and everything is fine except my gps doesnt work now. anyone have any clues as to why?

    Did you wipe data/cache within the bootloader?

    It's impossible to actually run 2 ROMs at once.

    I agree. A custom ROM is the same thing as a customized OS. You can't run two of them.

    Well the 4.2 update for the DS was just that, an update. Im guessing that could be installed over your existing ROM changing a few things. But if it was the actual v4.1 DS ROM zip it couldn't happen.
