Hi guys I downloaded the REtail version of my firmware for my device here https://mirrors.lolinet.com/firmware/motorola/denver/official/RETUS/
But when I patched and installed it via adb it seems to be a success

HOWEVER

I am STILL get the metro by tmobile splash screen on booting and I still have metro by tmobile apps pre installed on my phone. AND THAT Annoying metro news screen when you swipe to the left.

Am I not installing the correct firmware xda bros? TIA

You flashed it using the flash_file.xml as a reference for flash commands?

These are my recommended steps If you have a Windows machine.

Thank you sir I can confirm the flash_file.xml reference was followed in the commands. I double checked.

I LMSA says it can't verify my software and won't let me continue . I got the new september update and i think lmsa don't have it yet. idk why else it would say this.

fastboot flashing unlock = FAILED
fastboot oem unlock = FAILED
is there a method to discern my oem unlock code ?

Thanks in Advance for any assistance !
