    This will not allow you to multiboot yet, but if I can get this part figured out right, I will try my damndest to get the kernel in order. Needs a kernel that supports kexec-hardboot (just for the primary rom).
    Also, help from other devs would be greatly appreciated considering that this is my first "real" attempt at anything like this.

    I have attempted to port the Multirom recovery (TWRP-based) to the Avant. I can't test it because if it doesn't work, I have no access to a pc, so could not use Odin to re-flash stock recovery (or any working recovery).

    I feel like it will work, though, but do not test unless you have a way to restore if it fails.

    I am not responsible for any damages, blah, blah, blah, etc, etc...

    Unzip and flash with either of these methods:

    Flash on device with Flashfire app or through Odin on a PC...

    You will also need Multirom Manager if/when we get the kernel sorted out.

    OK I've tried it, results were I had to reflash recovery using Odin. I flashed this then rebooted, as soon as I did that, my phone turned off and I had to pull the battery out, it would only reboot to recovery so I had no choice but to get into Odin mode and flash using pc. Otherwise great job on even attempting to get something that advanced on this phone! :)

    I was afraid of that... Happened to me on my first trial last week, but was hoping I figured it out (but, was afraid to test because no pc atm)...

    Thank you very much for testing it...

    Could you possibly try again and share the logcat?

    I should have a pc soon, though, then I'll be able to test it myself and make quick changes. I feel like it shouldn't be too hard. Might really just need to port from a different device. This was ported from the Galaxy Tab 4 8". DPI could be an issue.

    Sure, just tell me how to get the logcat please, when I flashed it I could only reboot into the broken recovery, just pitch black lol. Adb maybe? Or even after flashing a working recovery I could find it somewhere? And awesome, hopefully we get this to work soon because I liked multirom on my nexus 5

    ADB pull the log from the cache partition, I believe... I've only used logcats from within my phone, but pretty sure the boot logs are stored there...
    TWRP has a file explorer... Could probably copy to extSD or USB...

    I believe it just needs to be 4.4.x, so CM11 or AOKP should work (when we get it to work at all)...

    How are you compiling a kernel without access to a computer?

    Ok so I've tested the v2 recovery and so far the screen stays stuck at the "booting into recovery screen" and occasionally bootloops. I'm going to see if i can pull the logcat or not
