    I was unaware that bobz cm10 would run with thekraven's CAI kernel
    so they can dual boot at least with CAI in NAND.

    Why have I never seen mention that TWRP recovery has a TERMINAL command entry function in it????
    That is way too cool and I never saw it until testing the multirom version of TWRP with a V kernel. (very pretty.)

    It's looking like the loop mount for /system may well be the way to go, that read-only thing is bugging me. It doesn't show up with errors in logcat until after init.d scripts run, right after vold starts up.

    Would it be possible to format the sdcard to have a separate partition for each boot, system, etc. Then have int.d mount each partition? Then we could have system as r/o and whatever else needs to be r/w or r/o.

    You could do that, but you can achieve practically the same think with loop mount files which are simpler to make.
    my roms & kernels (based on iho)

    first time i messed with booting from sd i tried that.
    seems android won't "see" more than 3 partitions if i remember
    right.
    plus loop mounting is easy...

    I would try this if you updated multirom to the version that works with multiple kernels.

    i'm testing v19 now, saw the one you're talking about, but it makes me nervous cause it reflashes boot every time you change roms.
    i can post you porting instructions for it, but i wouldn't post it for upload myself.
    to get this to work the way i want will require rebuilding init for whatever rom is being tweaked, and my free time is thin, so low expectations are a good idea.

    I didn't know it reflashed boot every time you change roms, it was awhile ago that I "glanced" at the post.
