Looks like it may have been the inclusion of touchless controls. That wasn't in there before, correct?

OP, any hope for us with XT1052 unlocked model? Really like your approach but is it safe to flash?

Edit: What are "other carriers with non-standard radio configuration" from description page?

why would i post files that are unsafe to flash? do you think i want to listen to a bunch of people complain about how i ruined their devices?
developer edition devices are virtually impossible to permanently brick. pretty much the only way you could permanently brick would be to corrupt the bootloader by flashing an erroneous file to its partition, and even a corrupt bootloader is repairable.
the problems with cross flashing arise when people flash gpt, motoboot, and NON-HLOS images.
flashing only logo, boot, and system, which these FXZs do, is always revertible.

you could flash any of these builds to sprint or republic wireless devices and they would likely boot, but would not have radio signal.


added a build for the xt1060 4.4.4 to the op.
-in 4.4.4, the mms apk is required for even basic sms to function in hangouts, so mms is now included by default
-added additional languages to the base build, so the fxz is now all in one

Thanks for the explanation, I dug up your other posts regarding gpt partitions and upgrade workarounds it's very well presented, but I still lack that technical understanding to tie it all in with my unlocked eu model. Will my device function properly (particularly the radio) if I flashed this ROM straight through recovery, or will I still have to follow your other flashing procedure.

BTW, I wasn't questioning your responsibility or attention to detail, but rather compatibility of this ROM on my XT1052 device. Thanks.

there is a section in the op titled "compatibility" that i would recommend reading.

i don't know whether your radio will work with the generic gsm build; it probably will if it is standard gsm, but the only way to find out for sure is to try. you unlocked your bootloader for a reason, right?

these are fastboot files, not recovery flashable roms, hence the link to instructions for flashing fastboot files.

if you decide to try it, i'd be interested to hear whether the radio works...
