Any chance there'll be one done sans the bootloader? Btw, I'm referring to the DE model.

Tia,

First off, Koff sumbish V.

Note that that's outta the way, *If the flashable zip(in twrp/cwm) will never happen, can one flash the stock recovery w/Flashify, accept the ota, then reflash twrp/cwm in Flashify?

Yes, I doubt someone will go to the trouble of modding the OTA for a custom recovery when it would only be saving you a few minutes of flashing stock recovery, stock system, OTA, custom recovery, root. It is after all developer friendly.

but it just makes common sense to do this since i'm having to figure out how to get stock recoveries for other variants. where is the sbfs?????

I, for one, would prefer to have a flashable zip to use via twrp. I've followed the instructions for restoring stock recovery, uninstalling xposed... But the ota still fails.

It shouldn't have to be this hard on a DEVELOPER device.

Try flashing the stock system partition... might be something else on system that you missed.

Man, I'm hitting a wall at every turn. I don't know why this is overly complicated on a "Dev" device.

Its not complicated. You need to be fully stock...no modifications for an ota. Or...wait for flashable files. (My choice usually)

If you want the ota and can't wait. The easiest thing to do...in my opinion ...is rsdlite to stock rom. Take ota. Reroot after. Simple. You will get your phone completely wiped tho.

Having a dev edition has no benefit for any of this. The ota is meant for stock...unrooted..."regular " customers.
