Let’s the Games Begin! SlimKat and Unofficial CM11 Ported to the Moto E

The Moto G, which was released back in 2013, has seen great success. The cheap and powerful device almost immediately found its way into the pockets of many XDA users around the world. Lenovo, after purchasing Motorola, decided to release an even more budget-friendly successor, the Moto E.

The Moto E’s firmware is close to AOSP, but in contrast to Nexus devices, the device tree wasn’t released. A while ago, we talked about a device tree by XDA Recognized Developers JackpotClavin and cybojenix. We’re pleased to announce that the whole process has gone well, and you can now try source-built Android in two flavors: Slim and CyanogenMod. This is possible thanks to cybojenix, who previously rooted the device and ported a TWRP recovery to this awesome smartphone. The ROM is pretty stable as an initial release. The only thing that still needs some polishing is mobile data.

These two ROMs are very close to stock. Cybojenix didn’t convert it to CAF, in order to keep it as close to stock as possible. The device tree is not yet pushed, but as promised, you all will have a chance to port some other ROMs pretty soon.

If you own a Moto E, make your way to the CyanogenMod or SlimKat threads to experience some custom ROM goodies.
