    Was curious if not being able to use hotspot was an known issue with this version?
    Besides that I love everything about the rom because the battery life seems to do better for me than 14.1. Also I can live without camera use. heh

    I have the 1575 version. No other annoying issues I can think of. Front camera is the only one that works out of the two.

    problems with bootloader-flash

    After testing the last lineageOS-version I wanted to go back to stock-nougat to have a working camera for vacations. However there was a problem with flashing the gpt.bin and bootloader.img. I got a “moto boot prevalidation flash (FAILED) remote failure” as a result. After researching the error on google I read about other people having this problem, but that it is possible to continue without flashing the bootloader. Indeed, the ROM booted succesfully and everything seemed to normal. After a while I noticed that the simcard wouldn’t be recongnized even after several reboots. It turned out that my phone had forgotten it’s IMEI and BASEBAND-numbers (Bootloader: “BASEBAND:<unknown>”, Settings: “IMEI: unknown”) I tried to reflash any of my TWRP-backups and reflashed both the stock- and LOS-ROMs but the SIM would not work again. I’ve read some guides on “how to restore IMEI/Baseband” but they all say “try flashing the stock ROM”. Is there any way of reflashing my current bootloader (version Ax0.52) to flash a full stock ROM or any other way to recover IMEI/Baseband-version?
