List of Custom ROMs for Motorola Moto G 2nd Gen XT1068, XT1063 & XT1064 (2014 Edition)

Moto G 2nd Gen (2014), is a mid budget device that has been released in September 2014. The phone received a warm welcome just like it’s predecessor. But it failed (kind of) to attract much developer interest unlike the previous year’s Moto G (You’ll soon find out why, Read on). In this list, I’ll be listing all of the available custom ROMs of Moto G 2nd gen (2014).

Some people, like me just can’t live with a phone with Stock ROM! For me, running my phones on stock ROMs are like being jailed. I want to experiment the phone and unlock more possibilities and features that I can do with my phone. I’m pretty sure you’re also like me, else why would you read this?

Well, I have been searching for custom ROMs of Motorola Moto G second generation (2014 edition) for a very good friend of mine. And I found it pretty difficult to find the ROMs for the device. That’s why I made a list of custom ROMs for Moto G2 or second generation Moto G.

We have a total of 6 ROMs for the Moto G 2nd gen, but some model specific. We now have a fully functional Lollipop ROM for Moto G 2014 (2nd Gen) XT1063, XT1064, XT1068 & XT1069. Check out Titan Prime ROM from the list below.

Well, that was a small list isn’t it? Now the list have grown a little bit, but it’s still only 5 of them. That was all the ROMs I could find for Moto G 2014 edition. This post had an another motive too, which was to point out the pathetic developer support for the Moto G 2nd Gen. I used the word pathetic just because there is not even a fully functional unofficial port of CyanogenMod for this phone.

You might already know that most of the phones out there, be it from Samsung, Micromax or Xiaomi, has got an official/unofficial CyanogenMod ROM. But Moto G 2nd Gen doesn’t even have that (a fully working CyanogenMod ROM). The importance of CyanogenMod is that it is a common base for many ROMs and having an official supported CM shows the developer interest. We now have an unofficial CM 12 port for Moto G 2014, this is a good beginning, we can really hope that developer makes this ROM a fully functional one.

If you’re in for some good Cyanogenmod themes, check out here!

It’s been about 5 months since this device has been released. We just have to wait for more time, for more ROMs and development on this device to start. For now, this is a device to avoid if you want to play with your device to the extreme. We’ll be updating this list with the new ROMs when they are released.
