How to Dual Boot Two Different ROMs on Your Samsung Galaxy S2 (SII) Using LolBoot

by Jawwad in Android, Mobile, Tips&Tricks | 0 comments


Normally you can flash and then use only one ROM/firmware on your Android phone unless some specific tool (a multi-boot kernel) is used to enable the option to boot multiple ROMs on the device. If you happen to have the Samsung Galaxy SII then a free app called LolBoot can be used to achieve this multi-boot functionality. More specifically, LolBoot will allow to dual-boot two completely independent ROMs on your SGS2 device. One firmware will be the primary one that will be booted normally. However, if the use recovery button combo (VOL-UP+HOME+POWER) then your Galaxy SII will boot in to the secondary flashed ROM instead of going to recovery menu. Please note that this tool requires a root on your Samsung device and is still in experimental stage. As a result it may not be compatible with all the available ROMs. You can find more details at the http://lui.li/lolboot-xda – the original XDA forum thread.
