The Moto E is One Step Closer to Source-Built ROM Goodness

Motorola released two very successful devices last year: the Moto G and Moto X. Both were (and still are) great smartphones in their respective categories. And by releasing the G, Motorola showed other OEMs that good devices don’t have to be very expensive. Not too long ago, Motorola released the even more wallet friendly Moto E, which is poised to conquer the developing markets.

Right after the Moto E’s release, XDA Recognized Developer cybojenix managed to root it and create a custom recovery. Nearly a month later, there is quite a bit of work that has been done to bring source-built ROM goodness to Moto E. XDA Recognized Developers JackpotClavin and cybojenix are working on device and kernel tree for the “condor.” Quite a lot of progress has been made thus far, including functional audio, wireless connectivity, sensors, and video recording. No user-flashable build hasn’t been released just yet, but if you want to try out a custom ROM on your Moto E, you can now build an instance of CyanogenMod or AOSP by more easily.

You can follow the progress and offer your assistance in bringing up the device tree by visiting the original thread.
