I almost feel like I'm the only one with one of these phones. And I have a hard time finding information about compatibility. I'm curious if the official CM nightlies are compatible with the GPE? I am rooted with CWM recovery. But I can't find out if flashing CM is a bad idea or not. I was thinking the only difference was the file format on the recovery partition, so as far as my noob butt is concerned, it should work. But I would like to confirm before flashing. I can't be the only one around here the a GPE device!!!

I flashed my phone with the GPE firmware, but the CMW can't mount the /sdcard partition, so the installation of CM11 on the traditional way was hard, maybe sideloading, but I don't know, so I had to flash to other firmware to install both CWM and the CM11...

there is a separate CWM for GPE since the file system is different compared to normal Moto G,see this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2634008
