Motorola Sends Moto X Pure Kernel Source to GitHub

Battle Of The Siblings: Moto X play Vs Moto X (2nd Gen).

Having created quite a decent space for itself in the low-cost and budget smartphone markets with the Moto E and Moto G respectively, Motorola now appears to be now targeting consumers in the mid-range market. Besides being waterproof, the Moto X Style contains impressive camera technologies like Phase Detect Auto-Focus, Tap (anywhere) to capture, 4X digital zoom, Burst mode, Panorama, Auto HDR, 1080p HD video, slow motion videos and night mode.

If you’re someone that’s used an aftermarket Android ROM in the past, then you’ll no doubt be familiar with that this news means for Moto X Pure owners looking to get some aftermarket ROMs on their device. Many initially feared this was Verizon up to one of their tactics, but that wasn’t the case at all: they simply didn’t have the device IMEI numbers ready in their database. The new model comes with a standard rubber cover with diagonal lines, but there are other options on the Moto Maker website, such as leather or bamboo.

This is often referred to as the kernel source, and for the most part only includes things like drivers which are incredibly important to get any software reliably talking to the hardware. You can even do it on their website using a quick and simple process, or simply head into a store or call a rep on the phone if you aren’t adventurous enough to handle it yourself. While many are still waiting for Motorola to deliver their devices – ourselves included – that won’t stop enterprising developers getting to work with this source code already.

We’re sure that there are some looking at this to find some sort of new method to root the new Moto X or those planning some sort of new custom ROM for the device. Moto 360 fans can also upgrade the watch to get the one with the metal strap with the color options of silver, gold, or black by just adding another £30 ($46) to the base price.

The silver strip running along the camera lens and flash at the back reminds us of the Moto G (3rd generation) as it carries a similar design element at the back. You might have bought a device from Motorola, but you don’t have to use every single piece of software provided to you by them, and we’re sure there’ll be some custom ROMs launching any day now to deliver better speed, maybe better battery life or something beyond that. With this kernel source, we can be sure to see a good version of CyanogenMod launch for this real soon, and for a lot of users, that might be music to their ears. While the 2014 Moto X will allow you to record 4K video, its imaging quality is not up to the mark; both back in 2014 against its competitors and even today against OnePlus and Xiaomi.

The loudness was pretty good.) The phone has not shown any signs of lag during the little time we have spent with it, but it’s too early to comment anything about its performance including the battery life delivered by its large 3,630 mAh battery.
