Moto G 4G Receives Official CyanogenMod 11 Love
When the Moto G was initially released to the world in November of last year, very few actually believed that Motorola would be capable of producing a high quality smartphone with an unsubsidized price of under $200 US. In the nearly ten months since its original release, the G has more than proven that not only can a $200 smartphone be decent, but it could actually be quite desirable. Much of this comes down to its almost entirely vanilla flavor of Android, with only the most minimal OEM customizations. And building off of the success of the original, Motorola soon released a 4G variant of the device for not much more cost.
Despite the fantastic and untainted stock software, many still choose to replace the G’s firmware entirely and enter the world of custom ROMs. Now, a new milestone has been reached for the Moto G 4G, thanks to XDA Senior Member Somcom3X (with help from shabbypenguin). The device now rocks official CyanogenMod 11 nightlies, and since this is of the official variety, essentially everything works. Naturally, you’ll need to unlock your bootloader and flash a recovery first, but all the steps are listed in the official thread.
Now with even more aftermarket development love, the G continues to prove that a device doesn’t have to be an expensive flagship to be great. If you’re a Moto G 4G (peregrine) owner and you’d like to get in on the CM11 love, head over to the CyanogenMod 11 for the Moto G 4G ROM thread to get started.

To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.
