I posted in some other threads partition info, here is a more detailed version.
It is 8GB German retail, running 4.3 with faux kernel and cwm.
Now i am running 4.4 and i hope in day or two i will put same info but from 4.4 so we can see what is changed on partition level (if anything).
I am new to motorola, been on samsung and there you could reset flash counter and "fake" that you have official rom by changing some numbers in partition or partition gap. Maybe we can do something similar here too.
I used dd to backup whole internal memory(mmcblk0, ~8GB) to my PC and also each partition except data, kernel, recovery and cache using method from this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...74&postcount=1.
After that i looked trough the dumps with hex editor and used linux file and md5sum "commands". All gathered info is below, i used hide tag because it is a bit long. I need also to check partition gap to see if there is anything.
Interesting to notice that imei is not encrypted like it was on my samsung galaxy ACE 2.

Lots of wasted space by the look of it. Plenty of scope for resizing partitions if it's not too dangerous.
