Customization and mods from the developer community are one of the many reasons that make Android the most popular mobile operating systems in the world. Many of you already know all there is when it comes to installing a custom ROM on a smartphone, but MultiROM allows the user to take things to the next level. The average Android enthusiast installs one custom ROM on their phone but variety is the spice of life. MultiROM is a mod that, once installed, lets the user dual-boot many different ROMs.
Not only can MultiROM boot a ROM from a smartphone’s internal storage, but it also has the ability to boot from a USB drive that’s connected to the device via OTG cable. Those who own the Xiaomi POCO F1 can now install this mod on their device to boot a MIUI ROM, a custom ROM, or even a Project Treble GSI. This release is thanks to the work from XDA Senior Members vasishath and Shahan_mik3. The developers have included the standard warning that this “whole thing is basically one giant hack” and that none of these ROMs are made with this mod in mind. The mod doesn’t mess with the data partition or boot sector, but if something goes awry then you will have to flash the stock MIUI fastboot ROM to get things back up and running. As always, make backups before making major changes like installing MultiROM.
