TEAMWIN TWRP v3.1.1 for the RAZR M KKBL (xt907 KKBL)

Built from source: http://github.com/minimal-manifest-t..._lineageos.git

All the usual prefaces to using this project. ie/eg I am not responsible for anything if you flash this zip in regards to your device or data etc etc etc

I have built this blindly (ie NO testing whatsoever) as I only have a JBBL device. It was easy for me to build since I have built a JBBL version, and I thought someone may find it useful IF it worked.

Please let me know if it works for you?

Now you just have to find a KKBL ROM to use it against but maybe this will be a case of now that a way to flash it has been made, "build it and they will come"

For anyone wanting to try this just a pointer. This isn't a TWRP flashable zip so you will need to use your computer to extract the IMG file and sideload using fastboot. Working great so far.

Does this require an unlocked bootloader? I am rooted.

I have XT907 KitKat 4.4. ready to try. Just need to know if I need an unlocked bootloader. That said, I am rooted.

you MUST have an unblocked bootloader to flash a custom recovery. ie this.

I only asked because 1) wasn't mentioned in this thread specifically. 2) Not all devices require the bootloader be unlocked. 3) Why does it need to be a custom recovery? I still get confused about that from time to time because it just amazes me that it seems that's where things seem to always end up and sometimes seems to be a bit too convenient. I'm not vastly familiar with bootloader technology so that's where I scratch my head. I can install TWRP, get to all the settings and options, so why can't I just back up the proper files/imgs and flash the zip?

Looks like I'm going to have to rely on Sunshine then. I wish they accepted Bitcoin. It's that, or lose the phone to old age as it's components and functions fail slowly, one by one. I know I can reflash the stock firmware, it's been done a...few...times.

EDIT: Well s**t. Sunshine DOES accept Bitcoin. If I had known that ages ago...ugh

Just wanted to pass on this TWRP build for KKBL worked great. I ended up "downgrading" to JBBL in order to load a current LineageOS build.
