[Q] Getting Jelly Bean 4.3 on Moto G LTE?
I understand the Moto G LTE never came with JB, but I'm curious what your thoughts on the possibility of taking the JB build for the regular Moto G and installing it on the LTE model?
The reason I'm asking is because I use to own the non-LTE Moto G. It came with KitKat out of the box, but through one of the great threads here on this site I was able to downgrade it to 4.3. The benefits for me were two fold, at least an additional 1-1.5 hour of screen on time, and most importantly the old webkit. I'm willing to sacrifice battery, but the lost of the old webkit is the most frustrating part. In a nutshell, The text reflow and zoom settings found in browsers such as Opera/Dolphin just don't compare to what I was able to get with webkit browsers that are not crippled by KitKat.
My thoughts on this matter:
- JB from the non-LTE Moto G is probably already 80% compatible with the LTE model
- Problem points: missing drivers for new radio and gyroscope.
- OS probably already supports sd card
I'm curious what your thoughts are on this? Has anyone tried flashing the Moto G JB rom on to the G? Is anyone working on JB roms for this phone?
