    That’s not only me. It’s all users that have a Quark (Moto Maxx, Droid Turbo and Moto Turbo), as well the calsurferpunk. The error occur when you install it. Says that’s not the correct device and yes another one.

    It could just be the updater-script that prevents installing this ROM.
    Anyway, I have updated another link, which you can try to see if that installs !!

    Nope. It’s a kernel thing problem. I’m a maintainer of Quarks as well and I work on kernels. The developers of the kernel that calsurferpunk uses says the same. I’m not just a simple user. You need to go on XDA forum of Moto Maxx to look before post wrong info. 😉

    It’s good to hear that you are a developer. 🙂

    I am a developer (linux and FreeBSD device driver developer) by profession and hence asked you the error logs (at the first place before suggesting you anything) to find possible information of the issue, which I could not get from you !!

    When you said it’s a common problem and everyone is facing this issue, then I thought it could just be the updater-script’s assert code that might be causing the issue (as it happens in most of the case) !!

    Anyway, it’s good to know that you found the root cause of the issue lies in the kernel and not else where.
    By the way, is it fixed or is the BUG still present ??
    What exactly is the issue that is stopping the device from booting?
