    I believe there is a kdz floating around for the marshmallow update for the tmo varient (but not metro pcs)

    I maybe be impatient ( for all i know they'll start pushing the update for metro after they finish pushing out the updates for tmo users) but instead of flashing 10j tmo version and then updating twice.

    Wouldnt it be easier (assuming this is possibly without a brick) to just flash the existing tmo mm kdz on the metro varient? Or is there some limitation that prevents this?

    I ask because i dont have home internet so i rather download the least amount of updates and shoot from 5.1.1 straight to MM with as little extra steps as possible for sake of my mobile data (yes i realize mm is a 750+ mb update)

    I don't see why it wouldn't work, they are basically the same exact phone and flashing lollipop kdz on metro Stylo's works so the MM one should work.

    What is the the process for this device?

    Ive had it since December but I didn't bother to root my device because of the supposed update to marshmallow.

    I generally do root my devices but usually not until it's done getting updates and I'm fairly sure this will be the last update to this model.
