CyanogenMod 11 nightlies arrive for T-Mobile/GSM, and Verizon developer edition Moto X

by: Robert TriggsFebruary 14, 2014


Following on from the wave of nightly builds released last week, and the bundle of new snapshot builds published at the beginning of this week, the CyanogenMod development team has now also uploaded two new nightlies, both for the Moto X. Although the Moto X already receives speedy updates of vanilla Android, CyanogenMod 11 packs in some unique features which makes the ROM a worthy replacement to pure Android.

First in line for a taste of CM11 is the T-Mobile Moto X (XT1053), which also happens to be the same model as the standard unlocked GSM edition, so both smartphone versions are covered with this ROM. The second file has been made available for the Verizon developer edition (XT1060) of the Moto X.

There doesn’t appear to have been any progress made on the locked bootloaders for the more widely available AT&T and standard Verizon Moto X models, but hopefully it won’t be too long before someone claims the increasingly large bounty. Smaller regional carriers are also sadly absent from the CyanogenMod treatment, but at the rate the development team has been going recently, it might not be too long until we hear some good news.

The download link for the T-Mobile Moto X can be found here, and here’s the Verizon Dev Edition link too. Don’t forget to grab the all-important GAPPS package too, if you want access to Google’s software.

    roms would remove active display / always listening?!?? can’t see the point of roms for the moto x

      Same for me here. I would be inclined to run something else but I do NOT want to loose X exclusive features. They are more important than the rom at least until Moto stops releasing updates on the OS then its game on.

        Same. All the different options in CM and AOKP would be awesome, but I really love Active Display. Don’t use the touchless controls as much, but it has saved me in a pinch a few times while driving.

    Change the ROM and get the most expensive dual core phone ever made :D
