    Personally I am curious as I took the plunge to get one of the kickstarter tablets, and it would be nice to get used to it before the tablet comes.

    I was going to try it on my Nexus 4, but the battery died a few days ago :(

    That tab looked like a lot bang for the buck. I was a bit tempted to get one myself.

    Yea, it does look quite nice. Unfortunately I missed out on the 3g version but I'm still excited!

    I think Multirom should not overwrite any partition. Similar to system, cache and data, it simply should should duplicate all the partitions provided in the secondary ROM's zip and share the non-existent partitions in the zip with primary rom.

    If this is possible, I think it would to some extent make secondary and primary roms independent of each other.

    Good info.

    Matter of fact the file I provided includes 8 files inluding tz.mbin. So it makes sense.

    The problem here is that the rom I am using as primary (slimsaber) requires the cm12 firmware in order to work properly.

    Maybe I'll just flash the appropriate firmware file before switching rom each time till multirom is modified.

    What would you fix next? Maybe wifi? Or sound?

    Fortunately the CM12 I m using, the CM nightly builds works with CM11 firmware as well. :)

    Here is the CM11 firmware (and related files...) just in case:

    https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=95897840722644978

    It contains: emmc_appsboot.mbn, logo.bin, NON-HLOS.bin, rpm.mbn, sbl1.mbn, sdi.mbn, static_nvbk.bin, tz.mbn

    (just as the CM12 counterpart)

    So to summarize all findings:

    1. installing CM11 as secundary (required to install sailfish) will break tz.mbn file in primary CM12 installation
    2. I can restore that file (and 7 more) using the CM12 firmwares file but it wil break sailfish (apps won't run properly)
    3. therefore I need to flash cm11 firmwares file before running sailfish (this must be done in the ordinary install file menu)
    4. whenever I want to use primary again I will flash again CM12 firmwares.

    Since I don't expect to do continously back and forth it will not be a huge issue...

    I tried both sides and it works alright.

    Now I can sit and wait for future releases :)

    BTW @vgrade how could I help? I am a proficient C and java programmer but no previous android experience....

    Thanks for this post and the work you guys are doing here and as for help just scratch the itch you have to get something working, document things, make videos, pop into #sailfishos-porters channel on IRC and say hello, tell your friends, organise local meetings anything really which promotes Sailfish and Mer on mobile devices.

    Hello, I'm currently running an exodus lollipop ROM, can anyone link me or tell me a way to install multirom and get sailfish os, and everything I will have to do.
    Thanks

    Multirom instructions at http://forum.xda-developers.com/oneplus-one/development/mod-multirom-v26-t2835738

    Once this is installed, boot to revovery and from advanced options you can enter the multirom add rom menu. There is a sailfishos radio button to select. It will then prompt you for 2 zips cm and sailfish both linked on the fist post.

    welcome aboard

    Thanks. Just a question. I'm currently on exodus so can I continue using this instead of cm12. Exodus is based on cm 12?

I am now on cm11 and go to advanced , multirom , add than sailfish is it tells me to install 2 things the first one was cm11 the second I did sailfish os , did I need to have something preinstalled?

    Be sure to be running the very latest multirom.
    They patched it just yesterday to support sailfish.
    You can use an app from the play store to keep everything updated. It requires root of course.
