with the bootloader encrypted i dont think its possible, however we are able to use boot manager that will allow you to boot from one rom to the next without data/cache wiping.

is that what you were talking about?

Yes, I think, I guess its a stupid question. I was just wondering if you could have Liberty and other ROMS on the same phone, and switch them on the fly. Sort of like what the Mac can do with Windows.

Sounds like a job for BootManager. It will allow you to install up to 5 different ROMs and choose which you want to load with a reboot.

Hmmm that would be really useful, does it work for Dx?
