[GUIDE][XT1033] How to Run GPE ROM With Single SIM Working [KOT49H][Dual Sim Moto G]
Hi Guys, like many of you I have been searching all over the forum on how to get the GPE Rom working on our dual sim variant of the Moto G. Most of us can do away with a single sim and seldom use the second one. After experimenting with the NON-HLOS.bin and fsg.mbn, I found out that the GPE rom doesn't work even if we retain the fsg or modem from the Asia-Retail dual sim roms. So here goes the guide on how to make the GPE rom work with a single sim on the XT1033. You'll need to have adb and fastboot installed or download the minimal adb and extract the contents to the rom folder.
1) Flash complete stock 4.4.2 Retail-GB
rom. You'll have a working single sim. (You can use the attached Retail_GB.bat. Copy it over to the extracted folder and run it.)
2) Download and extract The GPE
3) Replace the GPE_XT1032_KOT49H.M004_CFC.bat with GPE_XT1033_KOT49H.M004_CFC.bat
(attached) and run it.
4) You should now have the GPE rom with a single sim working.
P.S. This should work with other AOSP based roms like CM which are built for XT1032. Also you can try flashing 'only' the baseband (fsg.mbn) and modem (NON-HLOS.bin) of Retail-GB firmware and see if primary sim works on CM roms.
To flash specific partitions, edit the batch file accordingly.
Press THANKS if worked.
