May be a dumb question, but can I flash a flo rom on my Deb N7? I've looked and can't seem to find an answer. Thanks guys

Short answer: No

Long answer: Most likely the ROM won't boot, and if it flashes a radio it *might* soft-brick

WELL. Haha, I guess that's my answer haha. I got spoiled being able to just edit the Updater script or flash a kernel on other devices. Thanks man.

Others have reported that you can flash a flo ROM on a deb. You will not have data access though, so it doesn't make much sense to do that.
As always, YMMV.

This seems to be the situation most of the time. The ROM 's will flash but anything extra on Deb that's not on the Flo will not function is data. Which as stated defeats the purpose of having Deb.

I'm not really concerned with the data being available, but I'm not familiar enough with the device to chance bricking it by flashing an incompatible ROM...so I guess I'll stick to deb-specific builds for now.

It won't boot.
Believe me, I've tried. A lot.
