Motorola Posts Open Source Kernel Files For The Moto G

Moto G

Developers love getting their hands on a kernel source code, primarily because it allows them to develop some great new custom ROMs with awesome features you don’t usually get as standard. Starting today, the official Android 4.3 kernel files for the Moto G can be downloaded directly from Motorola’s official SourceForge homepage.

You may not get too excited by this announcement, but I’m sure that you can appreciate the fact that many other people do as this enables developers all around the world to work around the clock in order to adapt the code to develop some impressive custom ROMs that we can download, install and enjoy on our own Android devices.

The Moto G is as a cheaper, scaled-down version of Motorola’s flagship Moto X. Sadly, it’s not quite as customizable as the latter, so you will not be able to use MotoMaker, but it does have interchangeable back panels with 19 different colors to choose from.

In terms of specifications, the Moto G is possibly one of the most impressive budget-friendly smartphones on the market, packing a 4.5-inch capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 720 x 1280, a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, an Adreno 305 GPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB/16GB of internal storage, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter and a 2,070 mAh Li-Ion removable battery.
