i plan on only using wifi with the device, i dont need sim or camera.If it's essential for you to use LTE it might help not to take any but to select one of a country with the same bands/frequencies.
As I'm in Germany and a 5.0.2 DBT was existing I didn't have that problem, but I don't know where you live.
3G has been turned off here anyhow so that won't matter.
im only flashing LOS so that i can install apps that cant be installed on kitkat.
according to this is it still safe to flash any region's 5.1.1 firmware?
i read that flashing an incorrect CSC firmware can cause the device to have incorrect storage.
how did the flashing of a differnt 5.1.1 go for you?
