Sorry about that, got busier later in the day. Unfortunately it looks like it's not working properly with Uber BAMF PR3. I'm getting a freeze at the HTC splash screen. Going to logcat if possible and see if I can figure out what is wrong and give that to the devs.

How long were you waiting at the freeze? Sometimes Sense ROMs take 5+ minutes.

They don't freeze at the splash screen for 5 min, they "freeze" at the boot animation so they can build dalvik cache. I did wait probably about 5 min in hopes it would get past it on the first try, but after that not more than a couple minutes.

Edit: That was rather ambiguous I guess. What I mean is that some Sense ROMs appear to be non-responsive at the boot animation, and that it's not the splash screen they are getting stuck at. Where I'm getting stuck at is the splash screen (the first white screen with HTC logo) and this is not normal regardless of the ROM you use. You're welcome for a "clear as mud" explanation. :)

Awesome news! I really want this to work to be able to switch between uber bamf and cm7. Now im on uber bamf becasue it is more stable than cm7 for now. Any intented release on this update?
If that's what you want, then install Uber Bamf normally and then install CM7 to a sd slot and you're good to go! AOSP roms work well off of sd.

I need to post an update because I think I made a mistake last time I tried. I believe I tried using ext4 on accident which does NOT work on uber bamf. Ext2 however is working fine. Sorry about that all. Going to report back to devs now. Also they pushed the update to market guys.

Is there a way to take a nadroid backup and move/install/convert it to a bootmanager slot?
Supposedly yes, but the current version does not appear to support TWRP if you're on that now. I have not tried CWR but I'm about to flash to it just to give it a look-see.

Personally I like it because I know right where I can go for support. Also it's much faster at Nandroids and far more customizable. Also nice to see the battery % in recovery.

Just wanted to give another update on what's going on with this for those that are hesitant to use it because of no current TWRP support. The devs are currently working in TWRP support and I've been trying to help bug test things for them as they don't actually have TWRP on any of their own devices. So far things are looking promising though not quite bug-free just yet. I would expect this will be done within the next couple days easily. The biggest hangup so far for the devs is that TWRP has so many more options for Nandroids (such as including .android_secure and recovery as well as being able to compress the nandroid) and without being able to have it hands-on and just going by what I'm reporting back with is making things go a bit slower. Will report back if everything is good to go with TWRP.

I stopped using boot manager because I kept having trouble with wifi. I take it most either don't have that issue or don't use wifi? Dare I hope the issue was fixed?

I've never had any issues with wifi not working on ROM's booted up via bootmanager. If the ROM boots, wifi has worked for me.

Exactly. Wifi is never a problem for me unless I do something stupid. I killed off Wifi once because I was running CM7 as my Phone ROM. I ran the Setup Phone ROM process properly and things were great. Fast forward a couple weeks and I had switched to using SHIFTAO5P for a bit. I was testing out getting Uber BAMF working on a ROM slot and it failed to boot, so I rebooted into Recovery to run the update.zip file to get back into my Phone ROM. I had completely forgotten to run the Setup Phone ROM step on SHIFTAO5P so it pushed the boot.img from CM7 onto SHIFTAO5P. While it still booted, I no longer had Wifi support and upon further looking I had the wrong kernel. This wasn't BootManager's fault, but rather my fault for not following the steps of updating the Phone ROM when switching to a new one. I wouldn't be surprised if similar has happened to other people and they are assuming it's a bug in BootManager. BootManager itself cannot screw up your Wifi (or any other radio interface), it has to do with your particular ROM (including RIL), the radio you're running, and your actual Wifi router/access point. Nothing else but human error is a factor here.

Anyone able to install kernels on sense roms?

I already looked on their site and forum with no luck. Plus, there are no specific directions as to install a kernel.

Thanks in advance.

I got gingeritis to work from the card with the new update. It took 2 trys for it to load and I thought it hung up booting but let it sit for about 3 min and it finally booted

I have UberBAMF preview 3 running from the card with the new update. Everything is fine. Some BAMF roms in the past would install but Titanium Backup, for instance, couldn't find Busybox. Life is gravy now.

Also, No WiFi problems for me on CM7 & UberBAMF, or anything I've played with in other slots for that matter...

I'm glad to see people using boot manager without wifi issues. I will try again in the future.
