Android BootManager App: Dual Boot Multiple ROMs, Your Views

How would you like to install dual boot multiple ROMs on your Android device? Ok, normally we do not ask questions right at the beginning but the “BootManager” app via Android Market allows you to do this, please remember this is root only.

Unlike iOS, Android is brilliant in the way you can customise it, testing many different ROMS is what users love, and if you love trying out new ROMs on your Android phone you will definitely love this application, which costs £1.83 ($2.99) via the Android Market.

BootManager allows users to install up to five ROMs on your Android phone; this includes four on your SD card and one, which is currently in use.

This is a very cool Android Multi-Boot application that allows you to switch between each ROM with just a reboot, if you visit LifeHacker they give the how to dual-boot multiple roms on your android phone, please check them out and see what you think.

BootManager is great for rooted Android devices, we do suggest before trying this app out that you make backups or your current ROM, if anything goes wrong and you have not made a backup you will only start pulling out your hair so be safe and not sorry.

Simply download the ROMs to your SD-card that you want to install, once this is done just open the BootManager app and then follow the instruction shown on the screen.

This has been tested on these phones so far: Motorola Droid 1, HTC Incredible 1, HTC Thunderbolt, HTC Vision, HTC EVO 4G, HTC Inspire 4G, HTC Desire and the HTC Desire HD. If you have tried on any other device please let us know if it works ok, thanks.

What is new on this version? Fix ROM installer for setting permissions correctly, Fix for user entered variables, Fix force closes in installer and widget, Unzipped files shown, Added Wipe data/Factory reset to Manage Rom’s section, Added support for ROMs that extract files to SD card, Added Support, Added option to use ext4 file-system if ROMs support it, and Added log errors to SD.

If you have this app already please do come forward and send in your personal reviews, we would love to read your views on the above. Does it work well? Did it run smoothly? Did you encounter any problems? Anything you have to say please do so in the commenting area below. Thanks

    Any chance there will be support for HTC Sensation? I want to run cm7 but also have the stock rom as a choice as well.

      Hi, I’m curious, Are you rooted and have you run custom ROMs before? Because I can’t imagine what anyone would want with stock SENSE when they can have CM7.

        Of course I have rooted and ran custom Roms before. I was rockin a G1 for quite a while. I ran cm5 up to 6.1. I upgraded to a sensation. I like the sense but really miss cm. If I can dual boot them I would be set. Not only that sometimes cm doesn’t quite have all the bugs worked out so its nice to have a fall back.
