Hi

Just moved onto the Moto G from a couple of Huawei devices, G300 then Y300... (bye bye Modaco!) - So I'm pretty used to flashig, wiping etc using TWRP and CWM...

Anyhow, got the Moto G (XT1033), booloader unlocked, done a full restore to clean 4.2 and let it update to 4.4 fine, no problems.
Installed the latest CWM, got root, all fine... again, no problems...


But EVERY rom I try - slim, CM11, always install OK but on booting come up with phone process failures and I have to abandon.
I tried putting the 422 modem zip from the CM11 thread on, made no difference.
So I've rewiped back to stock and updated to 4.4.2, and flashed CWM, but still can't install a custom rom, getting the phone process error on startup.

Any suggestions?

Resolved myself! Revert to factory, install CWM and flash new roms without doing the ota to kitkat first.

Yes. Originally I let it run through the ota update, then installed CWM and tried to install various roms. All gave me a FC on outdoor process as soon as I booted.
tried again with TWRP, same thing. third time lucky, I restored to factory, let it boot but didn't do the ota update, installed CWM for 4.3 bootloader, and all has been find since, flashed several roms with no problems.

So you have a dual SIM version and you flashed a custom ROM which means only one SIM works now. Am I right? How is everything else, no issues with performance just because yours is a dual SIM variant?
