(i) please note:
the dual-boot itself is still kind of in experimental stage and there are still some incompatibilities with some ROMs and other quirks.
If things are somewhat "unsmooth", try the other of the two available dual-boot kernels and/or join the XDA thread and let me know about any issues, so I can look into them.
This app will help you setting up a dual-boot on your Galaxy S2.
The dualboot in action:
Detailed demo of this app:
When the dual-boot is set up, you can (re)boot between two different, independent ROMs.
Just powering on boots into the primary ROM (duh!).
Using the recovery button combo (VOL-UP+HOME+POWER) will boot into the second ROM instead of recovery!
Pluggin in a USB cable or AC charger when the phone is powered off will make the phone boot into recovery.
More details and info can be found in the LolBoot-DualBoot discussion thread at XDA-Devs:
If you encounter any problems, issues or have any other kind of feedback, the above thread is the perfect place to leave it - or send an e-mail, but the thread is the better choice ;-)
