Question [Q] TextPlus+ Problem App on CM11 Variants

Why can I no longer get my AT&T SMS through TextPlus? I no longer have this ability via TextPlus free or TextPlus Gold. I am running a CM11 based ROM (CandyKat) on a LG E980 (Optimus G Pro). The AT&T tab is no longer there, even though the app asks me if I want to use TextPlus for my regular SMS upon first launch after install.

To explain further, the option to set a tick mark in settings for TextPlus to also handle my AT&T messages is not there for this device. As stated above, I have been using TextPlus Gold for a couple of years with no problems, until this bug popped up. I have compared build.prop files from this device, and from my Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket (all features work as they should on this device), both running CM11 variant ROM, and I cannot see anything in it that would cause TextPlus to see and identify my phone as being a "non cellular" device without a cellular baseband modem.

If someone could point me in the right direction, I am very technically inclined and can handle editing system files with no problem, I just need to know which .prop, .conf etc. file, and values that I should edit and change.

If someone else could possibly test this on the E980, and another Android device running a CM11 based ROM, to see if they can duplicate the problem, or identify if this is a problem that I alone suffer from. I am in open conversation with Samuel Braff on the TextPlus G+ community at this time to see if he can come up with a solution on the app end of the problem, but he has stated that the problem would lie within the firmware itself.

Thanks in advance, all help and suggestions would be very helpful.

Mr. Braff has come up with some very useful information:

You need to have an "android.hardware.telephony.gsm.xml" file in your /system/etc/permissions directory. That file needs to have, at the very least:

Code:
<permissions>
    <feature name="android.hardware.telephony" />
    <feature name="android.hardware.telephony.gsm" />
</permissions>
The "android.hardware.telephony.gsm.xml" file does not exist in our current CM11 variant builds. How much trouble is it, and what is the procedure exactly to submit this to the devs so that we can get this included in future builds?

@mar5hal - how much trouble would it be to get this implemented in the next CandyKat build?

Does anyone care to chime in on this? I thought this was a development community?
