How to - Multi-boot Android OS' on your phone
| by Francis D'sa
Those of you Android users who are looking to add a little more to your existing handset, in terms of ROMs, here’s how you can go about booting up your handset with upto five different Android operating system versions on a single phone. All you need is a simple utility app, called Boot Manager, a fairly large SD card (at least 8 GB or higher) and your favorite ROMs.
Boot Manager is a unique and powerful utility app from ‘www.init2winitapps.com’ and costs just Rs 146 on the Android Marketplace. The app is a multi-boot application, which allows you to boot up to five different ROMs on a single Android smartphone. The first ROM is installed on the phone’s internal storage itself, while the other four ROMs are installed on the SD card in the form of image files, which are mounted and ready for use when required.
If you’re game, let us show you how to configure and run this app. But before we start, here are a few important things you need to know.
Those unfamiliar with some above words can refer to the XDA forums on how to root, S-OFF and install a custom recovery utility on the phone.
Note: Little knowledge about how to root and tweak your android handset can end up with a permanently damaged phone and also void the warranty. We are not responsible for any bricked handsets, while performing this workshop. Do this at your own risk.
If you haven't rooted your phone, yet, this workshop should help you get a better idea of how to do it and how to install a custom recovery firmware.

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
