Default [Q] Google Play Edition firmware on Non-Google Play Edition?

http://pdadb.net/index.php?m=reposit..._update_kot49h

Wondering if this is possible?
I have a C6806 through Bell. It however uses the Sony Branded ROM. Would this update work or are their hardware differences which would cause a brick?

Oh please read some threads in this great forum it got asked soo many times. To your question: No as of now this is not possible. And most likely making your device a regular GPe will not be possible too. A modified version of the rom will be available soonish

I purchased a c6806 from Bell about 3 weeks ago and would prefer to be on the GPe firmware, if possible. Under the Android development forum for the Xperia ZU, bigxie has posted a port of DooMLoRD's 4.4 ROM. With my unlockable bootloader, is it even possible for me to attempt to flash this rom? And if I do, will it mostly likely brick my device?

It does say unlocked in the OP of the thread, and needs either the stock GPE kernel or the modified GPE kernel. I dont believe that either will boot on a locked ZU

You're on Bell which means that Bell have locked the bootloader themselves. You can't unlock your bootloader, so you can't flash custom ROMs (including GPe). This might change in the future though (if some dev manages to crack it), but don't count on it.
