"I have 5 ROMs installed in the same device"

Reviewed by / May 28, 2014

Boot Manager is a multi-booter app for Android [only root]

Boot Manager lets you install up to four ROMs to your sdcard (plus one on your phone) and allows you to boot any of them and switch among them with just a reboot. This is the first app we've tried that performs such a operation. There are 5 empty slots to install the ROMs you like most. No more doubts about what ROM you should install in your device. Now you can install your two, three favorites and switch among them whenever you want.

What's more, you can install the ROMs from the app and manage them. You can wipe from the app (data, cache and system), you can set your preferences for each ROM, install kernel and some extra options regarding boot animation, appearance and performance. The only flaw we've noticed is the devices supported: mainly HTC devices except Motorola Droid 1. Evidently, you need to be root to run this app.

If you're a flashaholic this is your app. No more restrictions: switching is the way. High recommended.

Developer's original description available here
Open sourced at https://github.com/init2winitapps/BootManager

Boot Manager Lite allows one extra slot and some features have been removed from the pro version. For UNLIMITED slots and disabled settings see the pro version.

Boot Manager is Android's first multi-boot application. It allows you to install and boot ROMs from your sdcard and boot between then with just a reboot. The application acts as your recovery for your sdcard slots. Install your kernels, themes, and ROMs all through the app and use your normal recovery for your phone ROM only.

IF YOU HAVE UPDATED SUPERUSER APK YOU NEED TO DISABLE LOGGING IN THE SUPERUSER APP. IT IS A BUG IN SUPERUSER AND WILL CAUSE ISSUES WITH BOOTMANAGER

    Everytime I start it, it tells me it failed to install needed filesvand to check my data/wifi connection... No matter what I do, the files wont install, and I can't use the app.

    Supersonic is supposed to be supported. App repeatedly fails to load claiming it cant download files. Why does it even need to dl additional files?! That's what the market is for.
