    This is a pretty neat app if you like trying different roms but don't like to go through all the hassles of flashing a new rom each time you want to try something different. This app allows you to boot up to 4 different roms off your sdcard plus the base rom on your phone. Only requirement is your phone rom must be a 2ndinit rom. The app is on the Android market. Works pretty sweet. Currently I have MIUI as my phone rom and CM7GB plus Shuji 2.2 on my sdcard that I can boot into.

    I don't know the technicalities behind how 2ndinit works. I know it has to be used on pure aosp roms with phones that has locked bootloaders like the DX. MIUI and CM7 are both 2ndinit roms. If you do a Google search for CVPCS he did an interesting write up on his blog about how 2ndinit works.
