i everyone.

I have a verizon m8, which I bought from usa. But I live in turkey and I we dont have lte networks here.
So I always use my phone with gsm.
I am sick of verizon's this is not a verizon sim card warning all the time.

I s-off ed my device and supercid. Changed my mid to developer edition
After it I flashed a 401 firmware.
Everything went good so far.

But I tried to installed a rom (Insertcoin, ARHD) and I got error while installing any of them.
There was an error while installing the kernel.
I flashed stock kernel or Elemental but I ended with bootloop to bootloader.

Is conversation possible, does anyone know the exact process of this?

Thanks

Probably won't work as the Verizon model has different radios in it to the International one so even if it'll flash it might not connect to the GSM network as Verizon are a CDMA network in the US

There's no way and you should not be flashing things from this forum. Worst case scenario, your phone bricks.
