Yes until we can somehow upgrade to a 4.4 bootloader.

Kind of off topic a bit, but this seems the best place to ask. What's everyone's favorite ROM now? I've been using Alliance but the vertical scrolling issue is becoming too big a pain and I don't think a fix will be uploaded.

Are all the others compatible with the Dev Ed? Any special instructions I need to know about?

I've been using Eclipse 2.0 and now 2.1 w/ lean kernel 3.7 and it's been solid as a rock, highly recommend it, nitro is a beast!

THIS PROCESS ALSO SETS KNOX 0x1

Own a DevEd? Flashed the firmware/modem bits to the new TW4.4 in hopes of seeing some of the improvements or running a stock-modded ROM?

FIRST: Big shout out to @Imoseyon who has a VERY nice kernel for unlocked devices here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2488082
Go over there and tell him thanks, because I had spent a day or so trying to fix up a boot.img but wasn't having much luck due to a crash in TIMA memory. But, then I read that someone had gotten the leak booted w/ Imoseyon's kernel and was able to rip it apart and pull just the absolute minimum changes to get a VERY close to stock kernel / ramdisk setup for the 4.4 leak.

WHAT IS THIS?
Several issues were noticed immediately on DevEd devices due to the fact that we can't flash certain portions of the updated ODIN files (aboot, sbls, etc):
Play Movies won't stream
External SD card won't mount
Lockscreen settings don't work
Imoseyon's kernel was the only boot.img which would run 4.4 leak due to aboot/devicetree changes and TIMA crashes


The files below fix these issues and provide a VERY close to stock boot.img for use on DevEd devices.


FIX FILES: 2 flashable .zip files (for use in recovery):

1st flash file: flash-vzw-de-4.4-kernel-v1.0.zip
This is a rebuilt boot.img containing:
New NC2 stock-based kernel with CONFIG_TIMA disabled
Rebuilt dt.img using 1st gen dtbTool for use with our 4.3 aboot
Ramdisk has default.prop changes for disabling TIMA, KNOX and securestorage (Credit: @Imoseyon / leanKernel 2.4 ramdisk)

This file only needs to be flashed once (as long as you don't swap to AOSP ROMs). You can also use leanKernel by @Imoseyon if you like his work. The difference between this kernel and his are: I used the identical settings as the stock NC2 kernel (Kernel modules are enabled, etc) in an attempt to eliminate as many differences between the DevEd and the retail device. His kernel has a TON of tweaks and updates. But, could in theory have issues running the stock NC2 VZW leak.

2nd flash.zip file: flash-tw44-sys-files-fixes-v1.0.zip
A set of system file changes which fix the issues noted above (this file should be flashed after EVERY TW-based ROM is flashed)


Downloads:
Mirror 1 (Goo.im)
Mirror 2 (Crackflashers)

Instructions:
Download the above files and place them on your device's storage
Reboot into recovery
Flash flash-vzw-de-4.4-kernel-v1.0.zip if you need to fix kernel (coming from AOSP)
Flash flash-tw44-sys-files-fixes-v1.0.zip after ANY flash of TW-based 4.4 ROMs to fix system files
Reboot, no need to wipe cache, etc

Unlocking the bootloader turns this phone into a developer edition? Am I correct?
