Default ANT+ for Moto G (4G) and maybe others...

I've noticed that the Moto G 4G had the same chipset as the Xperia M2.
The Xperia M2 supports ANT+, so the 4G should too...

I've managed to build Cyanogenmod with support for ANT+ by following the information at

Here's the patch for

Attached to this post is a flashable zip which includes all binaries which were added by my own build in comparison to a normal CM build.
So you could add ANT+ support just by flashing it over CM(or probably every other rom).

After you've flashed it, get the "ANT+ Plugin Sampler" from the Play Store and try to connect to any sensor.
If a black window appears with the waiting circle on the upper left screen, then everything is working properly.
I only have a 4G to test, but i'd be very interested whether it works on a Moto G or a Moto E.

If you look at the patch, then you'll see that the driver for ANT+ is called "qualcomm-smd", so it's not specific to the chipset of the 4G but to a group of Qualcomm chips.

Let's find out to which ones exactly!
