    I use GravityBox, XBlast Tools, XuiMod, and others and if configured right, I rarely get forced closes. It's a little tricky to figure out what you can and can't do, but I have most mods available in any custom ROM, and great performance. Not saying I don't like or use custom ROMs, just not all the time.

    Stock, xposed and GravityBox is the winner for me as well. It all just works, and I've yet to experience any force closes. I like some custom roms as well, but I always end up going back to stock shortly after installing them.

    What is it about the VVM app that just cannot seem to work with custom roms anyway? This is the big killer for me when it comes to custom roms because I just cannot afford to miss important voice mail notifications, and who has the time in a day to check for voice mail every time they miss a call!

    Otherwise most of the custom roms I like don't have issues that can't be fixed other than that.

    I wish I knew why VVM does not work on custom roms since that is my main problem as well. Luckily stock on this device is very nice ;)

    Flashed 4.4.2 modem via DD , but still it shows as unknown. And no network
    Only 4.4.4 shows signals.
    So will wait for full package from SuperR.
    @SuperR will request you to make zip for flashing with your 4.4.2 stock . or full one package as you wish.

    Quick question, I flashed the rooted deodexed ROM, and every time I reboot now it goes through activating. Anyone else have this issue? In the process of setting up multiboot mod so trying to narrow down the issue.

    It may be due to a custom kernel as suggested before. This does not happen to me on full stock 4.4.4.

    If everything is working fine and you just want to skip HFA, go to system --priv-app--- and rename sprintOMADM apk and odex to anything you want.

    That sucks. Removed the download to avoid anyone else bricking their device.

    Here are the 4.4.4 files you requested.

    Thanks, using motoboot from your zip, was able to boot to unlocked bootloader and flashed twrp,
    now sending rooted 4.4.4 zip to sdcard thru ADB push.
    hope to get my device running in few min.

    Update :- after flashing motoboot 4.4.4 and twrp, was unable to flash4.4.4 rooted.zip
    Had DD back my modem 444
    then tried partition update 2 --successful
    but was unable to flash 4.4.4 rooted zip.
    then tried 4.4.2 de-odex and it went fine.
    now I am on 4.4.2 with 4.4.4 modem.
    will restore my twrp backup now..

    Update :- TWRP restore went fine, flash PRL and Data settings and my moto g back to normal.
