For an Android user, and by that means a person who purchased an Android device just because so he can use try different thing on his device, installing different ROMs is one of the best things ever, something that no other Platform has and if they have a chance to install Multiple ROMs on a single device, I don’t think a pure Android users, will let go of such opportunity. Multi-ROM v28 has been released and for those who don’t know what it is, we will tell you. Simply you can install a Single Primary OS on your device, no more than One, however, there are ways that you can crack that code and install more than one ROM on a Single device, however, you’ll be able to use one ROM at a time.
HTC One M8 is HTCs latest Flagship device and have enough potential to Run the Stock ROM without any problem or Lag, unlike Samsung. Multi-ROM is available for HTC One M8, means that you can install more than one ROM on it without any problem, and as I mentioned that it has more than enough power to run more than one ROM on it. However, you need to change a little things for it to install this Multi-ROM mod on it. If you are interested in Other ROMs, you can Visit our Custom ROMs section or you can install this MOD on your HTC One M8 by following our tutorial below. Remember, this is not a ROM, but only a MOD to let you install more than one ROM on HTC One M8.
1. This is only for HTC One M8!
This custom ROM is only for the device mentioned above. Make sure that your model number matches the one listed above. To do so, go to Settings > About Device on your device and see your model number. Flashing this ROM on any other device will result in bricking it so make sure that you meet this requirement first of all.
2. Battery should be charged at least over 60%
Make sure that your battery is charged enough to complete the flashing process. In case your battery is low and your device goes dead during the flashing process, you may end up soft bricking your device as it won’t complete the flashing process.
3. Flash a Custom Recovery
A custom recovery, whether a TWRP or CWM is required to flash this ROM. You may find Philz Advanced CWM recovery on our site, make sure that you flash this one using the instructions explained in the guide.
4. Backup everything!
Just to be on the safe side, you may consider backing up each and everything from your Android device. This is highly recommended so that in case anything goes wrong, you still have the access to all of your data and you can restore it immediately. You may backup everything as listed below.
- Backup SMS Messages
- Backup Call Logs
- Backup Contacts
- Backup Media – Copy your files manually to your PC or Laptop.
- Titanium Backup – If already rooted, use Titanium Backup to backup all of your apps, system data and other important content.
- Backup Nandroid – If CWM or TWRP installed previously, otherwise skip this step and perform this at the end of flashing.
The methods involved in flashing custom recoveries, roms and rooting your phone are highly custom and may result in bricking your device, and has nothing to do with Google or the device manufacturer that is HTC in our case. Also rooting your device will void its warranty and you will be no longer eligible for any kind of free device services by the manufacturers/warranty providers. In case of any mishap we may not be held responsible. Follow these instructions to the letter to avoid any mishap or bricking. Make sure that whatever you do, you are doing it at your own responsibility.
