I recently purchased a Motorola RAZR M 4G (LTE) here in australia from a local retailer. The details of which can be found at:

I have since unlocked the bootloader (I think it may of actually came pre-unlocked anyway), rooted and flashed Carbon KitKat ROM onto the phone.

In flashing Carbon I thought that for an XT905, I should of used the unified moto_msm8960 build. However, the install zip starts with an assert to check that the phone is correct for the ROM and thereby has a check (with others) for "scorpion_mini". But, my phone was returning "scorpion_mini_u". So, I editied the install zip to enable it to flash, and it all went smoothly and has been working fine. But, recently I looked at some logs generated by my phone, and it is showing up as msm8960dt; which if I am not mistaken in used by a MOTO X (among others).

So, it would appear that my Motorola RAZR M thinks it is not a scorpion_mini but a scorpion_mini_u, and it also thinks its a Moto X (msm8960dt ), but is "happy" to run a moto_msm8960 ROM, instead of an msm8960dt ROM.

I guess my questions are:
1. Has anyone else come across the above mix of identities? and understands whats going on?
2. Although the ROM appears to be running well, should I really only be flashing the "dt" ROMS onto my phone? either way, it does NOT match the available options in the assert statement for either ROMs.

I don't know if this helps anyone explain the above, but I found this thread:

and when I checked the CPU Info

root@smq_u:/ # cat /proc/cpuinfo
cat /proc/cpuinfo

I've pushed for the scorpion_mini_u assert.
I'm not surprised it's confusing for you. The "dt" in "Machine: msm8960dt" you see in dmesg actually means "device tree".
In the case of moto_msm8960dt family (Moto X, Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx, Droid Mini), msm8960dt refers to SoC - MSM8960DT.
SoC used by moto_msm8960 family (Razr HD, Razr M, Atrix HD, Photon Q) is MSM8960.

Builds for your Razr M are moto_msm8960. moto_msm8960dt builds wouldn't boot on xt905 at all.

EDIT: yes, the thread you've found is about the same matter.

Thanks. When trying to find references to the scorpion_mini_u on the web, I also came across references to the "scorpion_mini_t"
