Hi all. I'm not sure if I should post this here as well, but I just wanted to make sure that anyone who does not know that they can use the ROMs for the Moto Maxx for their Droid Turbo is able to do so (with an unlocked bootloader of course).

Here are the links to those that I am maintaining:

Stock Cyanogenmod 14.1 unofficial
http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...t/rom-t3494646 (Nougat)

Stock CyanogenMod 13 unofficial
http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...t/rom-t3341788 (Marshmallow)

Those that I am not a part of:

Official CyanogenMod 13.0 & 12.1

@calsurferpunk, as long as we are listing Quark ROMs, there's the official CM12.1 (Lollipop) and the official CM13 (Marshmallow).

I realize you have undertaken the task of maintaining unofficial CM13 until CM13 goes nightly... and I thank you for your efforts! -- but you are leaving off the official CM builds from the CM dev @Skrilax_CZ.

None of the custom Quark ROMs or any custom Quark kernels would be available without his work. (I'm not talking about stock-based ROM from @computerfreek274.) Most importantly, because all the custom Quark ROMs (even AOSP Mokee) use CM kernel -- which @Skrilax_CZ developed. Even @baybutcher27 kernel (which I use) is just an advanced version of CM kernel. Then, when the Droid Turbo XT1254 bootloader was unlocked last November, @Skrilax_CZ updated the CM kernel to also work with that Quark.

I'm currently using CM12.1 on two of my three Quarks until CM13 goes nightly.

Yes, your unofficial CM13 (Marshmallow) is updated more often than the official "work in progress" CM13, because @Skrilax_CZ is busy, but CM12.1 (Lollipop 5.1.1) is very stable and still has frequent nightlies.

While there is a thread over here for CM12.1, really it's best to use the CM12.1 links over in the other Quark forum, as that one has more dev traffic between you, @baybutcher27 and @Skrilax_CZ.

So, thank you for your work -- but if we are going to list all the current Quark ROMs, then let's list all the current Quark ROMs?

I understand. I by no means am trying to leave anything out. I just thought it would be handy to have a list since everything seems to be over in the Moto Maxx forums and not here. Not 100% needed, but I thought if it helps anybody, it's worth it. I'm sure there are others that I am forgetting or don't even know about. Just trying to list what I saw as a quick reference. Thanks for the encouragement and help on the posts as well.

I'd assume this 90%+ of the time, but in my experience with helping others with computer issues in general (outside of the forums) I've realized it's never good to assume everyone knows exactly what is going on, especially since computers/phones are obviously highly complicated devices. I just noticed how it seemed to be dying off in the forums here more for ROM development, so 1 reason I thought it could be happening is lack of understanding of the compatibility of the Moto Maxx and Droid Turbo. I figure it's worth helping that 1 new person who is just entering the "world of Android".



p.s. Like I said. I don't know if it's good to be putting this here or not, lol.

Sure, doesn't hurt to have a current list. For instance, we get newbies (twice in the past week) who didn't know the XT1250 and XT1254 are identical devices.

There was also Nexus Experience ROM (AOSP) and Sony Xperia ROMs, but they have dust on them. The Xperia ROM may still work with Droid Turbo, not sure, but the guy maintaining it said he was abandoning the effort. The Nexus Experience was never updated to work with current CM kernel (i.e. after the Droid Turbo bootloader was unlocked).

Show me what other thread in the Droid Turbo forum lists the unofficial CM13 (Marshmallow) ROM for all Quarks by @calsurferpunk? Right. There's not one. So you are wrong.

More information is better.

That's not what the thread is about. You might want to look at the title?

[ROMs][Quarks][List for Moto Maxx and Droid Turbo]

It lists the current ROMs available which some people over here may not know about. The CM13 (Marshmallow) ROM in particular at the top of the list is not from the CM dev, but is compiled by the op @calsurferpunk quite frequently -- using CM sources and @baybutcher27 custom kernel. It's an "unofficial" CM13, is relatively new -- has gotten good review by users -- and is NOT listed anywhere over here. (The official CM13 by @Skrilax_CZ has not been updated in about 6 weeks.) The op is doing that ROM as a public service until CM13 goes nightly or until the official CM13 is updated more frequently.

So, while most may know Quark ROMs are compatible, there's not a current master list over here. Two of the ones available in the past, Nexus Experience and Sony Xperia, have fallen off the charts due to abandonment. The unofficial CM13 (Marshmallow) has joined the list.

Some over here may not even realize Quark have TWO Marshmallow ROMs available? Or where to find them?

Not sure what you are upset about. Information that helps Android users is good.

My wife and I each have Turbos which I bought as soon as I saw that the bootloader had been unlocked. I have been watching both development forums (Android development & Original Android development) for this phone and was completely unaware that all of the development for this phone was happening elsewhere.
Thank you for this thread!
:-p to the grumps.
