    Dear All

    I currently have the Supernexus Jelly Bean Rom as my primary and Neat Rom V1.2 as my secondary. This was done using Siyah.

    I would like to try phenomenal Kernel 6.1 but I'm wondering will this mess anything up? Or if it supports dual Booting I will be fine

    Good luck. Be sure to report back :D

    (sorry, no help, but that sounds like a recipe for disaster)

    I would like to try this (more fool me), but I have reservations. Does any one know of a guide or have any information. I'll search XDA for some answers and I might try it sometime over the weekend. From what I've read so far it does seem like a recipe for disaster, I agree, but if I do do it I'll post back here with my findings and possibly be begging for help having turned my SGSII into a shiny paperweight.

    I used to play around with dual booting a lot when I tested roms. If the kernel you flash doesn't support dual-boot (which you should be able to find out), all that happens is you lose the ability to access your secondary rom. A re-flash of Siyah will allow you to access your secondary rom again (ie flashing a different kernel doesn't delete your secondary rom).
