MotoTool All In One Converts Your Moto G Into GPe

2u96cnn

One might say that there really aren’t many perks that the Moto G GPe can offer over its regular counterpart. Thanks to Moto G’s timely updates from the previously Google owned Motorola, the near stock Android platform its running, and the uninvasive and minimal additions (or tweaks) Motorola has included with the regular Moto G, this opinion may not be too far from the truth. But the GPe still does has its appeals, with the most obvious being its undisturbed, intact Android experience.

So if you are after the GPe experience but currently own a regular Moto G, you may want to check out MotoTool All In One (AIO) by XDA Senior Member alonsoch. Much like the previously featured MotoTool, AIO performs a number of . . . READ ON »

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

Moto-G

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 . . .

WOW: Moto G Google Play Edition Now Available, Starting at $179!

Screenshot_2014-01-14-14-19-27

It’s no secret that the highly regarded Moto G has been a major success ever since its launch a few months back. The device, which doesn’t delude itself with false flagship aspirations still manages to deliver a fantastic user experience. And perhaps more importantly, it does this at a price that doesn’t break the bank. Now, Google has just made the Moto G that much more enticing, by releasing the Moto G Google Play edition for the same $179 price that made the original device so ground-breaking.

Though recent Moto G purchasers may be upset to learn that a new GPe version is available, there will undoubtedly be ports made in no time, and we’ll be sure to cover them here on the Moto G se. . . READ ON »

Moto G Kernel Source Updated for KitKat, Latest Droids Now Receiving Widespread 4.4 Rollout

HELLO-MOTO1

Google-owned Motorola keeps courting us by making all of the right moves, as they have been updating all of their current devices to KitKat left and right. We first saw the update make its way to the Verizon Moto X, even before the Google Play edition devices received their updates. And then a little under one month ago, Android 4.4.2 started rolling out to the Moto G.

Now, Googoorola has released the GPL-mandated kernel source code files for the well liked Moto G running KitKat. Back in early December, we saw the release of these same open source files for the device’s initial Jelly Bean firmware release. And now, they have been updated for Android 4.4, enabling your favorite aftermarket kernel de. . . READ ON »

Android 4.4.2 Now Rolling Out to the Moto G!

4f6e744d-2b7f-4606-8a0c-cfaeef2a02c1-460x276

Good Guy Greg Motorola is at it again! Earlier today, we talked about how Motorola (and Verizon) were issuing official Android 4.4 updates to the Droid Maxx/Ultra/Mini devices. Now, Motorola is sharing some update love with the highly regarded Moto G.

The Moto G, which is prominently displayed in our Best of 2013 Holiday Guide as the one of the best budget smartphones of 2013, is not a “high end” device in the traditional sense. Despite that, it still features a fantastic user experience. And now, this device is further proof that Motorola is capable of delivering updates at a pace that simply embarrases “flagships” from other manufacturers.
