Can i install 16 different distros apart from the default manjaro?
#1
I read somewhere that you could flash an sd card with like 16 distros if you wanted.. And have the ability to choose between those and test stuff out. Is that the case?
Or would i have to remove the default OS? This one: https://xnux.eu/p-boot-demo/

That is the case, I've done it myself and it works though those releases are six months out of date now so I wouldn't take them to be entirely representative of what they're like today. You don't have to remove the default OS, just flash the p-boot-multi image to an SD card and put it in the phone.

Sweet. If i can keep the default OS. Because it works to call with plasma. And i don't know if others supports calls.. But i can try it out sometime with other distros if i just need them on an SD card. And i could update those old ones on the sd card right.Thanks

I'm not sure what happens if an update to an OS on the multiboot SD image installs a new kernel or bootloader version. The tool that generates the multiboot image is public, so you should be able to use it yourself to generate an SD image with more up to date OS versions.
