Starting with tonight’s nightlies, the Note 3 Qualcomm variants (collectively known as the HTLE device) are being split into 3 devices: ‘hlte’ for all GSM users, ‘hltespr’ for users of the Sprint version, and ‘hltevzw’ for users of the Verizon version. This divergence of the device is being driven by QMI and other incompatibilities between the platform, thus preventing a ‘unified’ device from working as well as we’d like.
Important: You must manually make sure you update to an appropriate build after today’s date. You cannot continue to flash the hlte build on top of your Verizon or Sprint Note 3 (GSM users are fine).
Due to how the devices report themselves to recovery, while we can place some guards in to lessen the issue, you will most likely not be blocked from installing incompatible builds – so you must be take a first step action to make sure you update appropriately. Once you are on the correct build, all future updates should behave normally. A data wipe is not require when applying the correct build.
This manual step will be required of all nightly users and users on the previously released hlte CM11 M8.
If you end up in with the wrong build on your device, you should still be able to boot, but will lose call/radio functionality. Flashing the correct build will resolve that issue, should this PSA not reach you in time.
