[Q] Native GSM/WCDMA/HSPA+ support on XT897 (not XT897c)?
Hello all, new to the Photon Q forum
My Photon Q should be arriving tomorrow and I have a question here...
As I have done my homework, there are 2 variants of this phone apparently named xt897
(as seen on CM website), which, judging from the name, should be respectively designed for GSM or CDMA networks. The one I've purchased is already SIM-modded
to accept micro-SIMs, and according to the reseller, the phone "works natively on GSM/WCDMA/HSPA+
1) Am I safe to assume that I will have a xt897
variant instead of a xt897c
2) Will flashing a ROM specifically designed for the xt897
variant, for example the official CM11
, break GSM support? Do I need a "GSM Patch
" like the Droid 4? Or am I good to go immediately after flashing the ROM?
Thanks in advance for any answers.
