Can I dual boot a Nexus 4 with Touch preview?

I have installed Ubuntu touch preview on my phone, but I cannot use it as primary device. I still like to have it for development and testing.

Any guidance would be helpful.

There is a dual boot solution for Nexus 7: forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2011403. Maybe it could be adapted to Nexus 4 as well. –  NilsB Feb 26 '13 at 17:45

Download boot manager, create new partition, flash cyanogenmod in second partition, and install Ubuntu over it like you normally would.

It certainly seems possible and should be.

Well, a real dual boot like with a pc is not possible, but maybe this app works:

It runs under rooted Android and you can select what ROM to boot next reboot. Maybe worth a try
