Hello all,
I have been having the hardest time I have a phone that was flashed/repaired using a donor phone. On these phones is it possible to flash a custom rom? Everytime i try my esn gets zeroed out and all my programming gets erased Then when i switch back to an MK4 rom everything comes back. Ive been flashing rom after rom with no success. am i doing something wrong or is this just not possible?

I have flashed almost every 4.4 rom in the development section and yes i have tried both twrp and cwm recoveries.
I even tried reverting back to stock after every flash and then doing the process all over again and still get the same resilts.

Use 6.07.9 http://goo.im/devs/philz_touch/CWM_A...d_Edition/l900

This should fix your problem. I am flashed to cricket and dont have any issues.

Did you flash by using a donor phone changing your ESN/MEID ?

Yes I have multiple phones cloned to the same esn. My current esn belonged to an evo 4g which is now dead. It is on another evo 4g, evo 3d, and now on my note 2 also.

Xda does not like cloning talk cause it is in the gray areas of the law. Best not to ask so you dont get warned or get points toward being banned.
