Fans of Motorola and ROM flashing will be excited to learn CyanogenMod is giving them what they want. NewCM11 nightly builds of the popular ROM now support a ton of Motorola devices with unified builds. You just have to figure out which phones are which – it's a little tricky.

There is a single ROM for the Falcon, which would be a cool name for a phone. It's actually the Moto G, and it looks like this ROM should work for all variants. The new listing for 'moto_msm8960' appears to be a unified ROM for all Motorola devices that run that particular Qualcomm chipset. That's the venerable Snapdragon S4, which powers devices like Photon Q, Atrix HD, Razr M, and Droid Razr HD.

Last but not least is a unified ROM that supports the moto_msm8960dt devices. The MSM8960DT is the dual-core flavor of S4 Pro used in Motorola's new generation of phones. That means this ROM should work with the Moto X, Droid Maxx, Droid Mini, and Droid Ultra. A few individual versions of the Moto X were covered before. Flash at your leisure, but use caution as always.

    With Moto's almost stock android and Xposed
    I dont think we need to deal with buggy Cm builds

    • Phil Oakley

      You understand what 'nightly means, right? It's a given they're going to be buggy.

      • Sourabh Sekhar

        I have used "stable builds in the past" but they too had lots of annoying bugs like random reboots,screen freezing etc.

      Stock android has a caller blacklist?

      • Sourabh Sekhar

        No.But there are many apps that can do it.
        I use root call blocker and it works flawlessly.

        I just make a contact for a number I do not want to receive calls from and then choose to auto forward those calls to voice mail.

  • Detonation

    Unless they can get all of the useful Moto X software features into the ROM, no deal.

    • arrigob

      That is how I feel exactly.

    "I don't want any of those stock Moto X features" - Said no Moto X owner ever.

    • Scott

      No kidding. Active Display alone is worth owning this phone.

    • Ryan

      So true... I'm loving Active Display and I'm starting to use Touchless Control more than I thought I would. I ditched CM from my Nexus 4, and the Moto X was the nail in the coffin for me.

      • Giratina

        Could you just screw you? Play with a Moto X before saying crap.

    I'm not seeing the necessity for this on these devices, personally.
