The Motorola Moto G LTE can now take a taste of the CyanogenMod 11 goodness

The Motorola Moto G LTE can now take a taste of the CyanogenMod 11 goodness
Several months passed since the LTE-enabled version of Motorola's popular trooper – the Moto G – got unveiled. Apart from flaunting an increased price tag, microSD slot, and 4G LTE capabilities, the device was otherwise identical to its 3G-only peer. The often-lauded device runs on usually the most up-to-date version of almost-stock Android, which paves the way for smooth performance and, therefore, pretty good overall user experience.

Despite this, there are some users who value the ability to customize and tinker with their device in any way imaginable, and for some of these, vanilla Android simply doesn't deliver. That's where custom ROMs come into play, and CyanogenMod is undoubtedly the most popular one. So, it was just a matter of time before it became available for the Moto G LTE – CyanogenMod 11, based on Android 4.4.4 KitKat, is now available for the device in question.

At the moment, though, the current build of CM11 is still in its early stages, which means that it comes with a few bugs and issues – apart from suffering from low RAM, the Moto G LTE with CyanogenMod 11 aboard also has some problems with acquiring GPS signal. We expect that these will be promptly fixed. If you can stomach the current bugs, however, head over to the source link for full instructions on how to flash CyanogenMod 11 on your beloved Motorola Moto G LTE.

Simply putting CM11 on my Nexus 4 gave me a 4000 point increase in Antutu over stock. I can undervolt it a bit, underclock it to 1.2GHz, and run it on 2 only cores, and it runs with barely a stutter.

XDA is the best! One of the contributors to CM11 on this phone, recognized developer shabbypenguin, was also the guy that figured out how to root my Galaxy Light, for which I'm extremely grateful. He got enough donations for that feat that he was able (after selling his own Galaxy Light) that he could afford the Moto G LTE. That's what makes XDA such a great community. Developers take the time and effort to make phones better for everybody, who in turn reward the developers so they can continue to make great contributions like these.
