I had another idea which is a further step to the dark side. If Someone with a JBBL was to wipe and flash a custom KKBL ROM (and gapps), and them immediately back it up (ie no reboot as it wont work), and then pass this backup on to you, could you not restore it onto your KKBL XT905? A backup can be restored using an ADB script can it not?

Have i answered you question?

Fastboot files for XT905 KKBL (you must be on KKBL before flashing) (for fastboot files hit thanks to @s5610)

I was the one who flashed the XT905 JB modem on KK firmware from XT907. It did not worked. But as far as I can remember the recovery worked. Maybe I am wrong here.

It is. I did.
But you will have to be on absolute stock 4.1..2 JB.
Without root and xposed. As this OTA update checks for it. It also checks for some pre-installed apps.
You are better off installing stock system.img and then flashing OTA. (I had to learn that the hard way).

And as some other member mentioned, you will have to flash KitKat stock recovery first. It is present in
