Can you flash the TMobile software onto an unlocked AT&T Moto X without having any issues?

Why? 4.4.3 is a minor update. Why risk anything by flashing other carriers firmware?

Be patient my friend.

Wasn't necessarily for that. Was more just curiosity if any one had done it successfully.

I did just that. Works fine. The OTA yesterday flashed fine too.

Plus, no hack needed for wifi tethering.

Nice - might give it a go sometime in the future to get rid of some the AT&T junk on the phone

Thanks for the confirmation.

I'm very curious -- the XT058 supports 2 LTE bands that the XT1053 does not. Any idea if you are still able to use LTE bands 5 & 7? Or are they disabled since you are using XT1053 ROM?

Shouldn't be a big deal since LTE bands 5 & 7 aren't used the the U.S. as of yet, but it would be good to know...

If you are in the U.S. there is probably no way for you to tell...thought I'd ask anyways.

Thanks!
Help us keep XDA fun and safe. Please read the RULES, and please respect your fellow members.

Looking for a new carrier? Check out Republic Wireless!
Plans starting at $10 for unlimited talk/text and $25 with unlimited data.
Use this link to save $20. RW is my carrier and I couldn't be happier with them.


I successfully CRACKED the SIM-LOCK on the Sprint XT1056 Moto X. Read about it HERE

Before the update to 4.4.3, i was running the AT&T 4.4.2 radio files with the Tmobile 4.4.2 software. When I upgraded to 4.4.3, I flashed the TMO radio before upgrading. However, I have no idea if 5&7 can be used.
