Motorola continues to work to expand its portfolio of handsets, with the recent launches of models Moto X Force and Moto G Turbo Edition, and also already in development aimed at bringing the Android 6.0 Marshmallow its users. Despite Motorola Moto X 2015 is in the middle of soak tests, there’s no the same luck for the older versions. But some independent groups do not intend to wait for the official firmware and that is why the owners of Moto X 2014 wishing the new version of the green little operating system can count on an unofficial CyanogenMod ROM.
Like most should be aware, Google released the Android 6.0 Marshmallow few weeks ago for the Nexus devices and outside this select group only LG has managed to produce an update for the LG G4 with relative agility. Motorola is losing the fame of being the manufacturer releasing updates quickly, although we have already news about tests in the Moto G 2015 (3rd generation) and Moto X Style. But thanks to independent ROMs you can have Marshmallow before many users and on older models, such as the Moto X 2014 (XT1097, Victara).
The ROM CyanogenMod 13 based on Android Marshmallow brings all new system resources, have been produced and published in the XDA forum for leonardoafa user. Those interested are being warned that, although considered a relatively stable version, there are still some bugs that need to be corrected. On page created for the project you can see the links to download the installation files with the tutorial, which includes the well-known stages: Download the ROM and GAPPS > Insert files in Moto X 2014 (XT1097) > Reboot into Recovery mode > Perform Wipe (Dalvik, Cache, Data and System) > Install ROM > Install GAPPS (Google Apps) > Restart and enjoy the Android Marshmallow.
The recommendations are the same as always in manual installations, follow the installation instructions, perform backup of important personal files and take the risks involved. For this ROM in particular the creator alert so as not to activate the battery saving mode at risk of the device come into bootloop.
