I've zte nubia z5s mini with TWRP v. 2.6.3.0 and I installed MIUI V5 on it.
No OTA is able to update, and by reading on the matter, I found out about the build.prop file.
In my current file, I have the line:
Code:
ro.product.mod_device=nx403
I saw in the script log in TWRP that it's looking for nx403a

My question is, should I edit the build.prop to add that 'a', in order to get all future OTA updates working?
Will it ruin anything on my phone?

Keep in mind, that although I'm a software developer - I'm a newbie with Android systems, and this is for my private phone. On my job I work with asp .net...

I imagine it would be fine, but make a backup in your TWRP so if there is an issue you can restore your working system!

I'd also take a look at this thread [GUIDE] How to edit build.prop on any Android device!

Read and ask about the risks there!

Since we do not have a fourm for your device, please post your question in General discussion > Upgrading, Modifying and Unlocking so that the right experts may help you.

Changing the Build.prop is typically not recommended. Particularly if you are looking for TWRP updates. Wrong Recovery will hardbrick your phone.

P.S changed the question a bot
Just FYI, I found out I looked at the wrong line, so my question became a bit different. But, maybe even more troublesome...
