    Hi there.

    Could someone please help me with a Step by step guide to install

    • ClockworkMod Recovery 6.0.3.2 and then set it up so that I install the latest MIUI rom on one system and then the latest CyanogenMod 10.2 on the other system.
    • Also how would the this setup affect the size of the different partitions?
    • Will the apps still be seen by both Roms? , or will they be installed separately?
    • When updating either Rom, how will it affect the other Rom and the apps?
    • Will I still be able to use the backup tool in the MIUI Rom?
    • Thanks in advance for any help.





     
  2. - just install cwm, backup your system(s) and enable TDB
    - it doesn't change the partition layout
    - you have to install all your apps on both systems, they aren't shared
    - updating the rom doesn't affect your other system if you don't use the miui updater app
    - yes u can use the backup tool
    - np

    Dont know if yyou managed but to install Clockworkmod install
    Download the cwm recovery than shut off your phone. (thanks m1cha)
    press volume up and power button to get in the original recovery menu. You should see install zip then search your file (i assume in downloads folder). Reboot and your cwm recovery should be installed.
    İn cwm recovery enable true dual boot, reboot in cwm recover volup+power.
    choose system one or two and search and İnstall preferred rom. You can install two different roms i.e. miui system 1 and cm10.2 on system 2.

    If coming from original Mi-Recovery you have to rename the cwm zipped file to update.zip and place it in the root of sdcard then select update from update.zip in the original recovery to install cwm recovery :)
