hello,

i wanted to ask if it is possible to port Sailfish OS to the moto x.
The Hardware Adaption Kit for Sailfish was released some days ago. I can't program, neither am i an developer, so any chances that this could be ported, even if our device has a custom soc (moto's x8 soc) ?

here are documentations for the hardware development kit etc.

active display is a feature i can't be away from, but the camera twist gesture is something i rarely ever use. I actually never use it because the camera is already so easy to get to by swiping left on the lock screen.

The twist gesture from a dead sleep is hands down faster than using the lockscreen. You don't even need to be worried about the power button just twist and shoot

We could just try to flash cm11 then modify the contents of the sailfish os for hammerhead to be compatible with the moto x. Not saying its that easy. Given the sailfish os probably has its own custom kernel among other things like that. But it can be done I bet. Just get a talented dev down here and sure as hell we will have it
