Today I’m going to share how to boot multiple ROMS on Galaxy Note 4. In fact we are going to learn how to dual boot ROMs on Galaxy Note 4 and switch between the installed ROMs.

Probably you may have heard about MultiROM. It is the easiest way to install more than a ROM on Android phones. Unfortunately it isn’t available for Note 4, but this is not a problem. Developers always try to find solutions and this time I have found a smart guide to dual boot ROMs on Galaxy Note 4.

At the XDA a developer named as aukhan created a tutorial to help all Galaxy Note 4 users to boot more than a ROM on their devices. In the guide below is explained how to install CyanogenMod 12 ROM besides the Stock TouchWiz ROM that is already installed on Note 4.

You can install any other ROM on you Galaxy Note 4. But make sure to have the proper files and take the same steps explained below for the CyanogenMod 12. All the procedure is the same, so if you want to dual boot ROMs on Galaxy Note 4 go ahead and follow the steps carefully.

Note: I shall not held any responsible for bricked device or any other problem that may occur to your Galaxy Note 4. Here at DoryLabs we only provide the guides but only you can decide if you want to go further. So of you want to try booting multiple ROMs to Galaxy Note 4 do at your own risk.

  1. Great guide. Using my T-Mobile note 4, and the recovery freezes every time I flash the patched zip files. The linux molecule’s editor wrote a similar guide and I also took the advice of changing the build prop to solve this problem, but it still did not work. Is this happening to the T-Mobile variants?

  2. Nice! Thanks mate it worked for me on 910g, I’ve been searching for months for a multirom port or alternative for the note 4 , its the thing I missed most of my nexus 5 r.I.p. used dirty unicorns ROM as primary, then patched and flashed simplrom , both boot and run as normal, just one question, allot of different ROMs on the note 4 require certain bootloaders and modems flashed with Odin, is that still possible, or is there another method , can I patch the modem zip file like u did with gapps ?

  3. NOT WORKING.
    Rooted galaxy note 4 sm-n910f 5.0.1 with TWRP recovery
    TWRP will not flash anything I’ve treid. Downloaded 6 of the newest cyanogenmod roms
    The error is e. error executing updater binary in zip

    Second, Dual Boot will not recognize and therefore not finish patching roms patched with newer versions of dual boot patch. I had to go all the way back to an april version.
    Help please

  4. Will this work for the SM-N910C variant?
