(Note: This MOD is US Cellular Electrify M / XT901 specific, but I figure enough of "us" come looking here for help so I'd share here.)

Electrify M ROM Converter

After months of "hand editing" every XT907 based ROM I flash to my Electrify M, I have finally decided to make a flash-able zip to do it.

What it does:

-Installs USC specific "eri.xml" and "apns-conf.xml".
-Installs USC specific "libs" to have a working voicemail notification.
-Edits "build.prop" to have working SMS/MMS. *(see below)
-Edits "build.prop" to have proper model number and carrier.
-Automatically set RUIM and CDMA/EvDo for "stable 3g". **(see below)


Installation:

-Flash your favorite ROM made for the "unlocked" RAZR M / XT907
-Flash the EM ROM Converter (this can be flashed before or after "trying" the ROM)
-Flash the appropriate gapps.
-Boot your "converted" ROM and enjoy.


I am currently using "PhilZ touch recovery" and didn't have any issues. TWRP should also work fine. CWM may need "/data" and "/system" mounted prior to flashing.


ROMS TESTED (as of 01/04/14):
-CyanogenMOD 11
-SlimKat 4.4.2
-OSE ROM 4.4.2



More to come...
-Addition of "LTE Helper" ***(see below)


A big thanks to those over at TeamUSCellular.com for testing, especially user @815turbo from over here. And of course, thank you to everyone over here at XDA-Developers creating ROMs for the XT907.


* It seems working MMS varies from ROM to ROM. More testing is needed.
** This will provide "stable" 3G service. Do to incompatibilities with ROMS built for the "RAZR M - XT907", LTE / 4G is not stable on the EM.
*** LTE-Helper not currently included. In my own testing, I did have working LTE using the helper, but experienced what I felt was excessive battery drain. As LTE-Helper progresses, it will be considered for inclusion.

@jbaumert
Can you please provide stock 4.1.2 firmware for XT901 USC as almost all links are dead.

@vipsy6 - There is a link on the TeamUSC forum. It says it's broken, but still appears to download fine. I could not find an MD5SUM to verify it though.
