    It's been awhile since I've used MultiROM, but if it still works the same way you need a custom version of TWRP, which can be installed from the MultiROM app. Simply place the rom on your internal storage like you would any rom. Boot to TWRP, go to Advanced -> MultiROM -> Add ROM. Then install the rom saved to your device.

    Also, the Nexus 7 MultiROM thread can be found HERE, for reference.

    This is where the special version of TWRP comes in. You don't just flash it as you would any rom. That would overwrite your current rom. You need the modified version of TWRP with the MultiROM options in the advanced menu. When you choose the add rom option, it installs the rom to your internal storage as opposed to installing it on /system.

    So basically, you have your main rom installed on the device as you would normally, then you can add as many roms as you have room for to the internal storage.

    Yep, but you're planning on using Multi-ROM TWRP aren't you?

    So your Primary ROM can be the 6.0.1 rom you have (or whatever you like :)), and then for your Secondary (or Tertiary or however many you want - you're limited by device storage space) ROM just install a stock LP rom and flash timur's on top of it (or whatever else you like :)). That's the whole point of multi-rom install ;) . The only requirement is for the kernel you use with Primary ROM to have multi-rom support, and if you use ElementalX it has so you're good to go.
