Video: Dualboot on the Nokia N950

| March 11, 2012 | 18 Replies

So if you follow me on twitter, you would know that I had flashed Nemo to my N950 and was fiddling with dual booting. Below is the video I made.

It is simple enough really. Turn the phone on like normal, be prompted with a few warnings and a standby screen featuring green text. Now, to boot into Harmattan, press the Volume Up button, to boot the Alternate OS, press the Volume Down button.

I have managed to get this to work using Nemo and Plasma Active as my alternate OSes. Hopefully, Nitdroid wont be too far away.

Apparently the same dualbooter is used for the N9, but seeing as it is my primary device, and I have finally got it the way I like it (since flashing 1.2 wiped everything) I don’t feel like experimenting.

Here is my video:

Also, if you are curious and wish to try out plasma active, get the image from here, and suppliment the above instructions using the Plasma Active Image instead of Nemo (.tar.baz2 file)
