    Step 7: Now again in MultiWindowSidebar app menu go to Select Apps and add all the apps that you want to add to the sidebar and use for multi tasking.

    Step 8: Give the show popup permissions to XHaloFloatingWindow and MultiWindowSidebar app.
    To do this go to Settings > Apps > Downloaded . Choose XHaloFloatingWindow. Turn on Show popup window. Similarily do for MultiWindowSidebar app as well.

    Step 9: REBOOT

    Step 10: Open MultiWindowSidebar App and click on Toggle Service. and ........ ENJOY [​IMG]

    Again try this at your own risk. I tried and it worked for me. there are small ignorable bugs like the multi window doesnt work in first attempt. But this feature is extremely useful for the users who do multitasking.

    Thanks! [​IMG]
