Hi all!

I've repacked the UK ROM with the necessary tools to convert a branded device (e.g. Tesco) to a generic device.

APPLY THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!
  • DOWNLOAD (ROMraid) - MD5: 0d8824be0eab931c0d78f185f3640fed
How to use - Windows, Linux and OSX
  • Download the zip file above and extract to a directory
  • Put your device in bootloader mode - Turn off the phone then turn on with the 'volume down' button pressed to enter the bootloader
  • WINDOWS - run 'flash-windows.bat' as Administrator
  • MAC - Open a terminal window to the directory containing the files, and type 'chmod +x flash-mac.sh' followed by 'sudo ./flash-mac.sh'
  • LINUX - Open a terminal window to the directory containing the files, and type 'chmod +x flash-linux.sh' followed by 'sudo ./flash-linux.sh'
Enjoy! :)

Can you do it without wiping data?

im guessing it will be on the generic Uk Retail rom after flashing this, thus updates direct from Moto?

also, will it take away the ebay sim unlock that ive applied? and does this root?

Hey paul !

I just bought a MOTO G, and subscribed to a french carrier SFR (I don't know if you heard about it in UK, same as Vodafone in France).

My rom is not stock, it's modified by SFR. And it's very laggy.

I'd like to install this UK STOCK rom until the global stock rom comes out.

 

But I have a few questions:

-Can I install this UK stock rom, with a French Mobile ?

-Do I have to unlock my bootloader before installing it ?

-This UK rom features Multi-language (French precisely) or not ?

 

Thanks ! :)

Awesome, just a quick one, will this do the trick on sim unlocking as well?

No, the SIM lock is seperate. Pay the £2.04 to get the unlock on eBay.

Sorry for the noob question. Does the bootloader need to be unlocked for flashing this ROM with your script?

What's the difference? Can't see any Tesco branding here other than on the System Version on the about screen.

No, it's just the stock rom.

I've downloaded the r2 version, there seems to be a difference in the script between the windows and mac / linux versions, specifically in the erase commands

 

the mac/linux has a space

fastboot-moto erase cache

but the windows has a single command

fastboot-moto erasecache

From testing it looks like the mac/linux version is correct.

What should my system version be after please? I followed all the steps and it seemed to work, after it flashed all the partitions the script closed and I selected normal boot from the list. It then booted up but I didn't have to re enter anything, and it had my WiFi saved, which didn't seem right to me? Its saying system version is 14.71.8.falcon_umts.Retail.en.GB has it worked?

Yes that's the correct system version from the GB retail firmware.  

I'm guessing you used the windows .bat file.

The problem is the script has not erased your /data or /cache partitions so the system has been updated but kept all your old data.  This is known as a 'dirty' flash  :o and is not recommended. It will probably work OK but you might get some random "unfortunately ..... app has stopped" errors.  If this happens then you need to go into Settings, Backup & Reset and do a Factory data rest.
