One of the surest signs that a device has paid its dues, that it has reached a certain level of public distribution and support, is when it receives official CyanogenMod support. Motorola’s Moto G 4G has just received these honors with CyanogenMod 11, let the ROMing begin.

The Moto G 4G is the second major iteration of an exceptional piece of hardware. The original Moto G came equipped with just 3G connectivity and no microSD card slot. The Moto G 4G, in short, improves upon the original by adding 4G connectivity and room for a microSD card.

In terms of specs, the Moto G 4G rocks a 4.5-inch 720p display, 1GB of RAM a 5MP camera and has been updated to Android 4.4.4 KitKat for most versions. The near completely vanilla Android experience makes for impressive performance on the Moto G 4G, we look forward to seeing if CyanogenMod can produce the same great results.

CyanogenMod is one of the leading custom ROM developers in the Android market. CyanogenMod 11 is built on Android 4.4.4 KitKat and offers users a unique approach to the mobile user interface and experience.

While CyanogenMod supports many devices, it does not support them all. This is an expected achievement for the beloved Moto G line, but one that should not go unnoticed, and most certainly will not be overlooked by fans of installing custom ROMs on their devices.

If you are ready to take the plunge, head on over to the XDA Forum for CyanogemMod on the Moto G 4G, they have all the instructions you’ll need.

What is the number one reason that you install custom ROMs? Will you put CyanogenMod on your Moto G 4G?
