to minimize phone and hdmi issues and maximise usability of the hardware, using lightweight software,
without needs to sync anything, like Blur. Google sync is enough and there are plenty of apps in Google play.
And that all in many languages, which are included in AOSP, but someone took them out.
But still, it's not perfect and never will be.
Made on my own unlocked GSM Photon, but works well on CDMA (Sprint) and Electrify (US Cellular) too.
Locked version also available. But still no 4g!
I am not responsible for any software or hardware damage or not working emergency calling. You don't have to use this.
If I am posting something I should not, tell me and I will delete it. I am just sharing this, because it´s good for me and could be good for someone else.
If anything does not work right after installation, do one more restart please.

Do not forget to calibrate the battery - it means - install, boot, (maybe reboot), charge 100%, wipe battery stats and /data/battd folder, discharge to 0% without any reboot (but you can use it ofcourse), plug your charger while holding power button to bypass charge only mode, do not unplug your charger or do not reboot, until it is 100% and use it anyhow you like...
Then you can complain about battery. It means, not sooner than 2 days after installation. :P
This calibration is not needed because of battery (it is lithium battery), but because of not very good Moto power statistics management. Battery can be charged anytime you like, but the phone can show only estimated battery values, based on charging and discharging.
You can use this Battery Fix app for wiping.
Sorry for my English.
ALWAYS MAKE BACKUP FIRST.
YOU CAN USE ANY RECOVERY YOU LIKE.
