Software developer Paul O'Brien is looking forward to his new project - the Samsung Galaxy S4 Sense and Google Experience dual boot. The developer previously created a dual boot option for the HTC One, enabling users to choose between Sense and ordinary software. 

A dual boot software enables a mobile phone user to switch between the phone's native system and an available, compatible downloadable system. 

His application called SWITCH was successful in raising almost GBP1,000 or US$1,535 for his dual boot solution for the popular smartphone of Samsung. O'Brien started the dual boot system by running the MoDaCo website where custom ROMs (files that are 'knock-offs' of original software) can be downloaded.  SWITCH, O Brien's latest work, offers services for Google Experience gadgets such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One. Sony's Xperia Z will also be included in the list, according to reports.

The fundraising campaign of the developer seeks to finance the cost of a one-man development team.MoDaCO SWITCH merges products by two companies, HTC and Google, in a single platform where the consumer has power.

Tech followers are looking into the possibility of bigger names in the industry to possible acquire or adapt the MoDaCo concept. Yahoo and Google have been relentlessly buying new startups and technologies as part of their aggressive buyout campaign, and Paul O'Brien might be the next one on the market.
