Hi,

!!! WARNING !!!

C6903 only!

Use at your own risk!

!!! WARNING !!!

Firmware info:
  • Device: C6903
  • Build number: 14.3.A.0.681
  • Android version: 4.4.2
  • Customization version: 1276-4318
  • Branding: Central Europe 1
The following items are integrated into this ROM:
  • XZDR: 2.7.99-BETA
  • SuperSU: 1.93
  • Fix to allow _writing_ to external SD cards.
How to update:
1. Put the flashable zip file on an external SD.
2. Boot into TWRP and install the update file.
3. _Power off_ the phone (do not boot into system yet!).
4. Flash the stripped ftf with Flashtool (version 0.9.15 required).
5. Boot into system.
Do not forget to _BACKUP_ before performing these steps!!!

This wouldn't be possible without the great work of @[NUT]! Thank You very much!

Downloads (Google Drive):
Enjoy!

KNOWN ISSUES:
* TWRP from XZDR 2.7.99 can't backup system partition - I strongly advise to update to XZDR 2.7.101 which fixes this issue

Want to create similar ROM with your customization? Follow this DIY Guide by [NUT].

Cheers,
Mateusz

Hi!
My flashmode is not working properly, could you please make a stock boot.img kernel?
Just the stock kernel, no mods.
Then I could flash kernel in fastboot.
Thanks for your great work!

Thanks,

How did you made the rom and stripped ftf from an full ftf file? I am waiting for NUT to update his DIY guide for 4.4 so I can use my own ftf file to make a rom, but maybe there already is a way to do that?

Does it work with Locked Bootloader?

I am currently on iHacker's rom and flashed with his recommended stripped kernel (should be 4.3's kernel)

I already have TWRP installed, can I just flash your ROM and use Flashtool to flash your stripped kernel?

Will that affects future downgrading?

Thanks for your work

Do I have to have a rooted device. Because I'm from the UK, and really eager to try out the kitkat. However, I'm not sure if it'll be safe.

For this yes, as you need recovery

Unless you install the recovery on 534 FW

However, you can flash a stock 4.4.2 FTF on flashtool without root
