This toolkit is for 3 of the 4 Moto Quarks: "international" XT1225 Moto Turbo/XT1225 Moto Maxx (both are actually the same device -- just different model name for different part of the world) and the U.S. Moto Maxx XT1250 sold by smaller regional CDMA/LTE carriers (and is actually the same CDMA/LTE device as the XT1254 Droid Turbo -- EXACT same FCC ID but has unlock-able bootloader).

This toolkit does NOT work on the Droid Turbo XT1254 which has a bootloader that can not be unlocked. Currently the only way to root an XT1254 is to start with Kitkat 4.4.4 and use paid Mofo root. Then you can flash rooted Lollipop images from the development section.

Does this toolkit flash a newer version of TWRP than you posted? I remember a dev @Skrilax_CZ saying our current version of TWRP needed updating to 2.8.5 (from 2.8.1) to make compatible with cm12.
_______

EDIT:
The answer is no, it doesn't. I flashed twice and it's still the 2.8.1.0 I had on the phone before.

But I still donated to the dev as it's a good toolkit.

Thanks for your donation! :D Do you have a link to the 2.8.5 build? If a device isn't officially supported, I spend a good amount of time searching XDA for the latest unofficial build, and the only TWRP build I found for the Maxx was here, which is the 2.8.1 build.

Which is the TWRP recovery @respider built for us. If he hadn't, we would not even have that. So, I thank him again for that. :good: I think he's in the process of updating it?

I just wasn't sure where your toolkit pullled TWRP from. Now, I know. When there's a newer TWRP version available for our phone, we just inform you?

I upload the recoveries to my own cloud server here so I can have more fine control in case there's issues with certain devices, recoveries, etc. You can see each device and when it was updated here. I generally update the recovery for each device when I update the toolkit itself, but you can let me know of an update anytime and I'll upload it. :good:

Just wait for Skrilax_CZ to get his cm12 in an alpha stage... Then guess he'll release the latest TWRP along with it... :)

Guys I tried recompiling TWRP with newer sources and it just didnt work out of the box, I need to make ajustments and I don't feel that motivated yet, since I see lots of places using my work* without giving any kind of credits which is the least one can do.

*although I didnt do the developing work, configuring, compiling and testing takes a chunk of my time


Just remembering TWRP is open source so if anyone feels like, just do it yourselves. :good:

Respider,

I thank you for your efforts and time on the TWRP. Without you, we would have nothing. I don't see a donate link, so forgive me if I overlooked it.

I'll be in Sao Paulo area this July for two weeks -- Liberdade district and also a city just northwest of Sao Paulo, Itatiba. My wife is Brazilian. Probably won't get a chance to meet, but I'll be thinking of you!

If you do get a chance to look at TWRP again in the future, it would be great. :good:

Respider, I don't know much about programing, but I got time to spend on this, so could you point me somewhere with a tutorial to make things like that?

And thanks for your effort, dude. Means a lot. I'm trying (without success) to sell my Moto Maxx cause this phone don't have community support, which is very important to me. I do law school, so I know nothing about programing, but if I can do something to change this scenario I would be happy to help.

Why is this in the Droid Turbo section of XDA when its not for the Turbo. I am aware of the OP's mention that its not for the Turbo but was really excited to see the posts in the Turbo Threads. Shouldnt the Maxx have its own? Could cause confusion for noobs or people who do not read directions thoroughly.

Your question has been answered several times already. You just aren't paying attention. You also quoted the entire OP, which is silly.

The "Latin America" XT1225 Moto Maxx, "U.S." XT1250 Moto Maxx, "U.S". XT1254 Droid Turbo, and "India" XT1225 Moto Turbo are all Quark phones with identical hardware. The CDMA XT1250 Moto Maxx and CDMA XT1254 Droid Turbo are IDENTICAL phones with the same FCC ID, both sold in the USA by U.S. carriers. (It was a LIE that Verizon had any "exclusivity" on this phone. The name was exclusive, not the phone.) The XT1250 has a bootloader than can be unlocked and rooted, and it will work on Verizon's network if you stick in a Verizon SIM card.

So, that's why it's here. If the Droid Turbo ever gets unlockable bootloader and root like all the other Quark phones, it can use this tool also. Until then all the other Quark phones can use it.

All the Quark phones are here. Perhaps the forum should be re-named. Perhaps the "Development" sections should have separate sub-forums -- especially since the Droid can't be "developed" right now, but the "General" and "Accessories" are all identical because they are identical hardware. I'm using a Verizon Droid Turbo Tech21 case for my ballistic nylon + Kevlar Moto Maxx. But that's not our decision. There are appropriate places on XDA to request this or discuss how forums are organized or named.

[/COLOR]I guess I should have been more specific to the droid turbo section and droid maxx having there own sections of XDA like other phones with same hardware but different service provider. They might be same phones but I could see unnecessary time wasted trying to figure out why droid maxx is under droid turbo when the section is labeled droid turbo.
