Let’s Get the Party Started: The Moto G Receives One of its First Custom ROMs

The Moto G was one of the hottest devices of late 2013. Featuring relatively powerful specification and an incredibly low price, the G is a perfect budget phone that can easily compete with the last-generation Nexus 4. And Motorola’s close affiliation with Google makes the device even more enticing.

A device like the Moto G should be prime for some major aftermarket development, but this has been surprisingly slow in recent weeks. This is no longer the case, as a couple of custom ROMs are now available in Moto G forums. Big credit goes to XDA Senior Member dhacker29,¬†who created a highly functional unofficial build of CyanogenMod 11. The build was almost completely fixed within the span of a week, and the developer claims that there are no bugs left. It’s an impressive achievement, considering that most phones need much longer than that for a fully functional ROM free of camera or radio issues. As this was the first source-built project for the G, now the flood gates are open for other popular ROMs to be ported as well.

If you are a happy Moto G owner and want to try something new, visit the development thread and give this ROM a try.
