Motorola Releases Open Source Files for the Moto G

Motorola Releases Open Source Files for the Moto G

Despite its insanely cheap $179 asking price, the Moto G is a legitimately good smartphone. Sure, it doesn’t pack the latest specs or highest resolution and largest screen, but it is more than powerful enough to deliver a fluid user interface to its more than adequate 720p panel. And to top it off, the device is slated to get official KitKat love in the relatively near future.

We recently created a forum for the new device, and it has since seen the beginnings of aftermarket development love. Now, things are about to get a whole lot more exciting, as Motorola has released the GPL-mandated kernel source for the device—a prerequisite for the real development to begin.

Naturally this means nothing in the immediate term for end users. However, the timely source release and the device’s excellent value will almost certainly equate to plenty of development fun to come. Head over to SourceForge to download the open source files, and don’t forget to share your development work in our newly created Moto G forum!
