MultiROM Also Makes its Way to the Moto G

Just yesterday, we wrote about how XDA Recognized Developer Tasssadar‘s MultiROM technology had been ported to the Moto E. As it turns out, the Moto E isn’t the only budget-friendly and critically acclaimed Motorola device to receive a port. The popular Moto G has also received a port, and now it too can enjoy all of the multiboot fun.

This unofficial MultiROM port for the Moto G comes courtesy of XDA Forum Member montamer. And in the roughly half month since its official release, the port has made quite a bit of progress. It works both on standard and GPe devices, WiFi connectivity works in both ROMs, touch selection works, and of course the core multiboot functionality is fine as well. That said, there are a few issues that remain such as sporadic secondary ROM boot failures that require a reboot and occasional permission denied errors requiring a ROM reinstall.

As always, multiboot modifications like this one are not for the faint of heart. This is a large scale modification, so make sure you are comfortable with all of the available tools to recover in case something goes wrong. And of course, make sure you have a good backup. Head over to the MultiROM for the Moto G thread to begin.
