    ***Stock ROM Collection***


    Here are the stock ROMs in TWRP flashable zips.

    Latest Sprint/Boost/Virgin Mobile
    XT1776 Version 7.1.1 NCR26.58-44-3:

    Latest Retail XT1775
    Version 7.1.1 NPRS26.58-45-3:
    https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=890278863836284495

    Installation Instructions:
    You must be already updated to the same firmware version as the rom (system, oem, modem and all) or you will likely have problems.


    1- Boot to TWRP and wipe system, data, cache and dalvik-cache. If you don't want your device encrypted, format data and reboot recovery. If you format data, you'll need to make sure to allow TWRP to modify /system.
    2- Flash the ROM.
    3- Flash your choice of zips from here: https://build.nethunter.com/android-tools/ to disable dm-verity (no-verity-opt-encrypt will disable force-encryption, no-verity-force-encrypt will keep force encryption, but disable dm-verity).
    4- Flash the latest Magisk if you want root.
    5- If you want Magisk modules to work properly, flash the kernel here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/mo...release-f2fs-bug-fix-kernel-qualcomm-t3724103 then a zip to disable dm-verity and Magisk.
    5- Reboot TWRP. (This is important to keep the stock recovery from replacing TWRP!)
    6- Reboot to ROM.

    Flashable modems, oem partitions, and previous ROM versions will be posted soon.

    Thanks for your work on this. I've got the Amazon no ads version - XT1775. Build number NPRS26.58-45-6. Can I still use the above procedure with the 26.58-45-3 stock rom? I've got TWRP and Magisk installed, the phone indicates root and I am running some apps that require it, but I must have done something wrong because all modules fail when I try to load them with Magisk. Can I just retry with steps 1-6 from above?

    I'm not sure how that will work out. It may go ok, and you may get force closes from the oem and modem being from a newer version. This is what I've found to be the case with my xt1776 anyway. If I had the files, I'd make a stock rom with that version, but I don't see that firmware anywhere. Otherwise I'd need someone to provide me with a working untouched system/boot backup.

    I made a full backup before root, but after regular apps were installed.

    That'll work, I don't need a backup of /data so that's not a problem. If you could zip up the system and boot backups and upload it somewhere that I can easily download it like Drive or Mega, I'll make a flashable zip for you ASAP.
    Edit: make sure you only give me the both system.ext4.win000 and system.ext4.win001, and not the system image backup if you made one of those also.

    I had already uploaded the backup to my google drive. I don't know if it is what you need, but would appreciate your taking a look. Is there a way I can message (or 'start a conversation') you with the link?

    I just downloaded the new OTA for Boost(NCR26.58-44-6). As soon as I have a chance, I'll update and make a new Boost/Sprint rom. Maybe I'll mod the OTA zip to work with twrp again and make updating easier for everyone else. If anyone with the retail XT1775 is already running the latest update (NPRS26.58-45-6) and could provide me with an untouched system and boot TWRP backup, the updated oem.img, modem.img and fsg.mbn pulled from the device and a copy of the latest OTA package I'll do the same for that model also.

    Quick question. I am currently running the older Lineage ROM. While I run into the dreaded bootloader issue if I were to flash this?

    You really only have to make sure you don't downgrade your bootloader, and make sure your oem partition, modem and system are from the same firmware version and touch shouldn't have any problems. If you haven't ildayed to the firmware version the rom was made from, yoully need to at least update your oem and modem first. I have the files I believe I've been meaning to upload if you should need them. I'm going to do an updated rom hopefully tomorrow if you want to hold off till then.
