Is it possible to dual boot Switchroot and Lakka from the same SD Card through hekate?
Im planning to use a 128GB SD card. And would triple boot work, Ubuntu, Lakka and Android?

The main challenge is in partitioning your drive, the provided android images fill almost all of it with partitions inaccessible by non-Android. Some people have done it and offered tutorials but its pretty involved.

There is somewhere a script that partitions everything for you (android, fat32, emummc/emunand) but idk where to find it... (it was definitely someones project on ReSwitched at least).

I did get lakka and Android on the same sd card.
I used the 64gb image for switchroot. But it uses the whole sd card. Ubuntu is also an file that I would have to flash. So I don't know how im going to flash 2 images on 1 card

    I suppose you have to resort in buying the components for yourself, after all they cost little.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Why not they do the same with the BIOS replacement kits?

    I'd rather wait for a kit to become a available

    I'm happily more confident to do it myself without a kit.

    And If you get a part that might be defective you'd need to wait longer and spend more

    Unless there are additions that need to be done.

    You're right.

    Why it's better to buy directly from reputable sources

    Yes, and not from some shitty Chinese store.

    They are many repetable component stores to name such as RS Components.

    But then there's added tax to the mix.

    Makes them more expensive. :(

    USB is fine, but shouldn't it be replaced with bulky, hard to use cables and all sorts of proprietary male-female connector port shapes?

    It's so frustrating to have one simple cable that you can plug in upside down for everything!!!

    USB4 can do up to 40gbps I'd welcome it

    From a Linus video it's essentially just a type c with an advanced chip

    40Gbps is just going to result in even more more lazy developers writing sub-optimal, lazy code.

    How? That transfer speed is insane

    That's like saying fast transfers is going to be the downfall of gaming

    Then when devs that actually do take their time makes people cry over them taking their time and having to wait even longer
