Motorola Moto G aa 13

There’s a lot to love about the Motorola Moto G. The price is absolutely a steal, the handset’s customizations are very light and the specs are extremely impressive for the money. Looking for yet another reason to be impressed by the budget-oriented Moto G? Thanks to the efforts of XDA member dhacker29, the Moto G now has an unofficial build of Cyanogenmod 11.

Although this isn’t necessarily the first CM11 build to surface for the Moto G, it appears to be the only build that is actually stable enough to use. According to the ROM’s developer and many of the users that have tried the ROM, just about everything is working including calls, data, camera and media. Of course, it’s still an early build and some bugs are to be expected.


What’s even more exciting about the new unofficial CM11 build is that it supports all three version of the Moto G: the X1028 for Verizon, the XT1032 for international GSM, and the XT1034 for retail US GSM.

With the Moto G already being a near-stock experience, some users are probably going to be more than satisfied with the G’s default ROM. That said, there are certainly some users that truly prefer the CyanogenMod experience and it’s always great to have more options.

For more details on the unofficial build or to download it for yourself, you’ll need to head over to the XDA Developer’s forum. Anyone try this ROM with their Moto G yet? If so, what version and how did the experience go for you?

    Big thing CM has over stock, IMO, is the built in call blocker/blacklist. I get a lot of spam calls, and having a blocker is essential. I’m running nighlies on my Nexus 5.

      There are apps for that, and you don’t need to run a different rom altogether.

        Mind suggesting something that has a system level integration and works well like the one in CM?

      Privacy Guard IMO.

    Awesome. Immersive mode would make god use of the 4.5 inch screen.
