Hi, I used your method to install this rom and it's working as expected. Good work!
I am a little concerned over flashing the xposed module however. Has anyone tried this and can confirm there is no GSM/3G/4G signal issues such as no mobile data connectivity or call drop-outs, stuttering voice during call etc?

I have flashed vivid mod over this flashable zip.now the problem was build.prop modified,can somebody give me original buil.prop file from this.270 fw.
 
Hey guys so i tested xposed on this little gem. I have been able to flash and install without any boot loops, so that part is cool. The wall that I have hit is an incompatibly when downloading and installing modules. They simply will not install. I am just a guy who likes to mess around with my phone, so I am not sure what is going on under the hood, nor do i have any logs to show. I don't even know how I would make those at the moment. I hope this is helpful, in some way.

I have a question.
I have the 4.4.4 with root 14.4.A.0.157- I have already installed the dual recovery by nut 2.8.21- now for the lollipop with firmware 2.70 must only install the .zip file (D5503_14.5.A.0.270_Generic_India-SuperSU_V2.46-lockeddualrecovery_2.8.12-.zip)?
I am Italian so it should work in Italy with Italian language right? without any type of problem with the network 4g?
regards

Anybody know what the difference is between .242 and .270? Is it worth upgrading?

I hope you make flashable zip for unlocked bootloader too. Is there any debloater script too for Z1c? Or list of apps worth freezing?

It will work on unlocked bootloader too.
I personally don't use a debloater script or freeze apps, I directly remove them from system.

You can find a script for it in the general section itself.
