Well i would like to ask those mobiles experts this question,,,

I have an Android phone and wanted to have a separate two profiles like for example having 2 OSs in one drive
BUT
each profile should have its own sboot parameter...

Anyone tried that? :spy:

Some models do have option to install two separate systems, for example now very old Xiaomi Mi3w.

To have this in originaly single OS phone would require GPT modification and some acrobatics on how to select which OS to boot.

Am aware of this, having 2 androids in one phone...

BUT

you did not pay attention to the "each profile should have its own sboot parameter..."

Imagine this:

2 separate profiles connected some how by sboot parameters where it self-destructs if one of those sboot altered

whats the point?? .......... use your imagination...

Bootrom ->SBL->aboot->kernel

So to protect SBL you need custom bootrom :)
