Report: Verizon's DROID Turbo 2 Will Be Customizable With Moto Maker, Specs And Release Date Mentioned

We've already heard a good bit about the DROID Turbo 2, the latest Motorola phone customized for Verizon's US exclusive line. We've even been given a peek at the device, which seems to be very similar to the latest iterations of the Moto X series. New details have been reported by Phandroid, and while we can't confirm them, they seem like natural extensions of Motorola's current market direction. Notably, the DROID Turbo 2 will reportedly get at least some of the same Moto Maker customization options that have been slowly expanding from the Moto X to other devices.

The exact nature of the Moto Maker customizations aren't mentioned, though if the design is very similar to the Moto X you can probably expect a lot of the same choices.

Motorola Says That Unlocking The Bootloader On The Moto X Pure Edition Will Void Your Warranty

Looking to apply some root modifications or custom ROMs to that sweet Moto X Pure Edition (AKA the Moto X Style outside the US) you just got from Moto Maker? You might want to think twice. According to an employee post on the official Motorola support forum, the Moto X Pure Edition is not considered a developer device (like the Developer Edition versions of previous Moto X and DROID phones), so fiddling around with aftermarket software means you're on your own when it comes to support.

The new (2015) Moto X Pure is not a developer edition, so unlocking the bootloader does void the warranty.

Motorola Releases Kernel Source For The 2015 Moto X Pure

TWRP Support Comes To The Moto MAXX, Moto X Pure 2015, Moto G 2014 LTE, Huawei Mate S, Galaxy J1 Ace, and Galaxy Xcover 3

Many of us enjoy rooting our Android devices and installing custom ROMs on them, sometimes out of boredom with the current software, other times to try a new Android version before it's officially released by our OEM/operator, and a few times because we just want to check out something cool a modder has implemented for our smartphone. The first step in that process is getting a good custom recovery, and Team Win's is one of the most supported, widely available, and reliable recoveries out there.

Now you'll be able to use it on more devices, as official TWRP support is coming to 6 new smartphones: the Motorola Moto MAXX, Moto X Pure 2015, Moto G 2014 LTE, the Huawei Mate S, and two Galaxy models, the J1 Ace and the Xcover 3.

The latest update adds four more to the list, along with the ability to change the color of the smartwatch's charging screen from the default blue. There are five to choose from altogether: blue, red, green, purple, and yellow.

[Update: It's Official] The Original Moto X On Verizon Is Finally Getting Android 5.1 Via A Soak Test

While many of us have been living the Lollipop life and looking forward to Marshmallow, life hasn't been so grand for owners of the first generation Moto X on Verizon. They've been languishing on Android 4.4.4 all this time, but it looks like that's finally changing. A soak test for Android 5.1 is starting to roll out, and that could soon mean a general release of Lollipop for this once proud device.

Moto Body Makes Its Way To The Play Store, Provides More Detailed Fitness Stats From Your Moto 360 On Your Phone

Moto 360 owners have been enjoying a Moto Body application on their watch since the Motorola Connect update in November 2014. The app, however, was limited to the confines of the small screen on their wrist, providing daily steps, calories, and activity data, but with no weekly or monthly stats. That changes today with the dedicated Moto Body application that has hit the Play Store.

The app isn't a Motorola exclusive — it is compatible with various brands of Android devices, as long as the phone runs Android 4.3 and up. But it will only install the Wear component on a Moto 360, so you won't be able to use it on other smartwatches.

Huawei Mate 2 And Moto E 2015 CyanogenMod Nightly Builds Are Now Available For Download

The CyanogenMod team continues to develop builds for new phones, and today we get support for two budget-oriented options that are popular with the unlocked crowd. The Moto E 2015, a phone with a relatively small screen and a tiny price, and the Huawei Mate 2, a phone with a relatively enormous screen and a price that's still pretty small, both have CyanogenMod 12.1 (Android 5.1) ROMs waiting for them on the official download site.

The Mate 2 is under the "mt2" codename, currently with three nightly builds available, and the Moto E 2015 is (for no obvious reason) labeled "otus" with two builds available at the time of writing.
