Paul O'Brien, well known and respected mobile device developer since the early Windows Mobile days, and owner of MoDaCo, has recently published first screenshots of a project called "MoDaCo.Switch". Following these screen shots, today he continued with a shot video demo which shows MoDaCo.Switch in action. As a matter of fact, the tool, which is designed at the moment for the HTC One, allows you to switch on the fly between an HTC Sense and Google Play Edition, without losing any data. If Switch becomes commercial reality, it means there's no more time consuming flashing or decisions with which kind of ROM you want to go since you could have both versions on one single device.
Executing Switch reboots the device and lets it boot in either Stock (HTC Sense) or Google Play Edition (AOSP). However, the most interesting part is, that MoDaCo.Switch shares applications, installed on either the one or the other system. This means that an app has installed only once and will be available on both ROM versions - even sharing the same data base like accounts.
The video above looks already pretty promising and it shows that - even if it is still under development - MoDaCo.Switch is already working on Paul's HTC One test device. Yet, there is no word when or if MoDaCo.Switch is publically released. However, you might want to follow Paul on Twitter where he will keeps you updated about the development.
