On Tuesday of this week we posed the question on twitter and the site asking “If you could change one thing about Android what would it be?”. We had some great response but the one that stood out for me was by user @philicibine on Twitter who suggested…
This was a great idea I thought and then tonight I get an email from Land of Droid editor Ross McClardy (@mr_bridger) pointing me to the XDA Developers forums where I was instantly greeted with the title “[APP] SwitchMe – Securely Boot Into Multiple Installations of Android On Any Device”.
That’s right, the user ftgg99 had created exactly what was requested – “a unique application for root users that allows them to log in and out of multiple installations of Android just as you would on a desktop computer”
Its critical to understand that incorrect use of this application can potentially harm your device. This can happen if you create and switch to a profile that
exceeds the available memory – switching into this profile will cause a boot loop as Android attempts to unsuccessfully build the Dalvik cache.
Before proceeding with use we recommend that you perform a full nandroid backup through recovery.
INITIAL LOAD TIMES MAY TAKE A WHILE, THIS IS NORMAL, DONT RESTART YOUR DEVICE
Stay tuned, and please rate the application by pressing the star button on the main screen – good ratings help us improve and expand functionality!
