The Moto X 2014. One of the best flagships of this year. Yet it has something missing. What is it you ask? For me it was the flavor of a custom ROM. So, if you’re like me, and have a crack flashing habit, then this might be the thing you’ve been waiting for. Presenting, the Liquid Smooth ROM for the Moto X 2014.
- Your Moto X 2014 must be rooted with it’s boot loader unlocked.
- You must have a custom recovery installed, like TWRP or CWM.
- Your phone must be charged over 80%.
- Some common sense and ability to follow instructions!
- If you have not flashed a custom rom on your device before this you will need to format your data partition in TWRP or you will get an encryption error
With that done, let’s get this show on the road.
Boot into recovery mode. To do so, power off your phone press the power and volume down buttons at the same time for about 3 or 4 seconds and then release both. Scroll down to Recovery by using the volume down button – do not press the power button to select. Press the volume key up once when on Recovery and this will select the option.You will see a quick boot screen. Give it a moment and it will go to boot options in just a moment. Press the volume up and volume down buttons at the same time (in the middle) for about five seconds and then press power button once.
The Recovery Mode menu will be displayed.
Backup your current ROM from your custom recovery.
Do a complete wipe, data and cache.
Navigate to your SD Card and select the ROM zip file. Flash the ROM. (For your convenience we advise that you keep the zip file at the root of your SD card)
If you’re so inclined, flash the GAPPs package.
Reboot. The first boot will take longer than others so don’t panic.
My signal keeps dropping what do I do?
Call your mobile operator and they will provide you with an APN, manually input it and you’re golden!
