Default Dual boot custom roms Xperia Play R800i

Hi, I'm just wondering if anyone knows how to Dual Boot custom Roms onto the Xperia Play? I'm looking to essentially create a partition where i can boot custom Roms without having to flash, unflash then flash again. I did try searching EVERYWHERE for the answers but couldn't find a single thing. A noob-friendly guide would be lovely or even a good tutorial video would be heaven. I saw that BootManager does this but is not supported on the Xperia Play R800i, neither are most of the apps doing this. Yet all these people are managing to dual boot custom Roms, it mustn't be as hard as I'm making it out to be right? Please I am nearing the end of my tether, any help would be much appreciated.

Dual boot is currently not working on the Xperia Play.

So by that am I to take that it will work soon? Or that it does not support it? or when it should be working?

It was a work in progress, but then the developers began working on cm9, give it time and it might be working...
