Default [FLASHABLE ZIP] [v4.3] Switch ROMs among Tuna Devices // Android 4.4

Hello there. Recently, I have seen many people with Tuna devices(especially Toroplus and Toro) want other variants' ROMs. Most are available for all three variants, but some are not or have delays. Thankfully, some people edit the ROM zip files and upload them so that the folks with another variant can use it daily. But, this way of editing needs some time to download, edit, and upload.

I wanted to reduce the time, so I made a simple flashable-zip file.

How it works:
It deletes most of the unneeded files and place the files you need in the appropriate paths. Then a script modifies the build.prop.

NOT WORKING:
-MMS
-data on some ROMs

Versions
v1-v3: 4.2.2
v4-latest: 4.3-4.4

Downloads:

Thanks to @MBQ_ for ftp server hosting

@funkypc 's update to Android 4.4.2, AllTuna:



How-To:
1. Download a switch for your variant Download "Tuna" if you're not sure what it is.
2-1. Extract a ROM zip file of your choice (of another gnex variant)
2-2. Open /META-INF/com/google/android/updater-script
2-3. Delete these lines
Code:
 assert(getprop("ro.product.device") == "WHATEVERITIS" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "WHATEVERITIS");
If there isn't one, just leave it.
2-4. Zip the folder and flash it
3. Flash the switch
3. Flash Gapps and/or whatever fixes/mods/kernels you want

Data(3G/4G) doesn't work? (v4.2 or higher)
1. On any "native" YOURVARIANT's (maguro, toro, or toroplus) rom, copy and paste all of the followings at once in a terminal emulator app.
Code:
su
mkdir -p /sdcard/backups/telephony
cp -a /data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/* /sdcard/backups/telephony
2. Reboot to recovery, full wipe, install a ROM of your choice (the one that you wanna convert), flash the switch zip, gapps, kernel, etc.
3. Reboot to android, see if data works, if not, turn on and off airplane mode. If still not, try changing the preferred network mode in Settings - WIRELESS&NETWORK - More... - mobile network. Still not, reboot.

If you want to change the carrier label, follow either set of steps in this thread by spunks3.

Please let me know if you find any bugs or if it doesn't work.

I've thought of doing something like this before, but couldn't quite pull it off. Thanks! Have a funny feeling this will come in handy in two weeks...
