Thanks to sirduke989 on XDA, we finally have a multiboot on Archos G9 tablets. This smart piece of code will let you select the system image you want to boot on. Up to 10 images can appear in the boot menu.

Latest updates:
Version 0.3b (2012/05/08): added kernel support for Archos G9 firmware 4.0.6
Version 0.3 (2012/04/10): Fixed 10 image limit
Tracking last booted image with * in menu (saved to /data/local/bmimage)

Archos G9 multiboot quick video demo

Archos G9 Multiboot installation

Enable SDE (Special Developer Edition)

Make sure SDE is enabled on your Archos Gen9 tablet. If this is not the case, please check the full procedure here.

Prepare your system images

First copy your favorite system images to /mnt/storage on your tablet.
In our video demo, we have installed ICS@Blue and Archos official 4.05 ICS firmware rooted, both from XDA forum.

Install the multiboot

Connect your tablet to your computer thru the USB cable
Download the multiboot files (initramfs.cpio.lzo and zImage) on your computer.
dmenu-0.3a.zip (4shared.com)
For convenience, we have storage a local copy on our server (it may be not the latest update) :dmenu-0.3a.zip

You should always find latest version on XDA

Select Recovery System in the menu. Use Volume +, Volume - hardware buttons on the tablet for Up/Down navigation, use Power button for confirmation.

Select Developer Edition Menu

Finally, select Flash Kernel and initramfs option in the menu.

Your computer should now mount a new drive from the tablet and you should be able to copy initramfs.cpio.lzo and zImage files from the computer. Press power button on the tablet when you are done copying.

The tablet will flash the multiboot and you are now able to select the system image on your Archos G9 😉

Thanks to sirduke989 for multiboot, surdu_petru for ICS@BLUE
