Moto G source software released, paving way for customization

The Moto G source codes have been released, letting you hack into Moto G’s Zion mainframe and end the rebellion. If you’re into development of custom kernels or other fun stuff for Motorola’s new mid-range monster, you are now free and clear to do so with the blessing of the mothership. While it seems a bit strange to be excited for mid-range customization, it could be a crucial step for both Motorola and Android.

Moto G gets a winter snow boot animation

We have been spending some time with the Moto G recently.

It seems the Motorola Boot Services app has been updated and it brings a bit of winter.

Moto G makes tidy profit for Google, according to analysts

If you thought there was no way Motorola was able to make money form the Moto G, think again. A new study posits that Motorola has worked in a tidy profit into each Moto G handset, and will clear about 5% from each sale once all is said and done. For consumers, this is great; we get a really nice device at a stellar price. For other OEMs, it could pressure them to follow suit.

Moto G Flip Shell hands-on

Following a lengthy series of rumors, Motorola officially announced the Moto G at an event back in mid-November. Since that point we have been watching the handset begin arriving. The North American launch began in Canada and that was followed up with an earlier than expected release in the US market. But along with the announcement for the Moto G itself, Motorola also detailed some accessories. With that in mind, we have recently been spending some time with the Moto G and for today, we have a hands-on with the Flip Shell.

Moto G root solution arrives as Superboot

Superboot, a Moto G root solution has recently been unveiled by Paul O'Brien at MoDaCo. Rooting your Moto G using Superboot appears to be a relatively quick and easy process. And nicely, this will work with Mac, Windows and Linux computers. The one catch here, your Moto G will need to have an unlocked bootloader before the root process can begin.

Moto G North American availability begins today in Canada

We were expecting the Moto G to arrive with several Canadian carriers and as of today, that has happened. The Moto G has arrived in Canada by way of Telus and Koodo Mobile, both of whom have the handset with the expected low price point. The handset can be picked up for $200 without any long term agreement necessary.
