Hey guys as we all know that currently Moto G is the best phone in its range So i hope it gets a good dev. support too

I see that the Galaxy Grand2 & Xperia M2 have the same chipset as Moto G . The Qualcomm MSM8226 powers all of them !

Out of curiosity, wanna know that can the Moto G get the stock Rom of these devices ported on it .
Is that possible ?

It would be a great achievement

Most likely no one will bother doing that, the best you`ll may get are port of the apps of these.
Having the same SoC doesn't mean they are easy to port or smth like that, there are tons of things that wont work and will need long hours of work to get the to woking state (not stable, just working).Also the SoC itself despite being MSM8226 in al of em, its actually different too

Lol I tried but failed on 3
4 different ports also the resolution has to be the same it doesnt really matter on the chipset just as long as its Qualcomm or snapdragon it wont really matter.
The error was "fastboot reason fall through normal boot mode"
Ive tried on these devices
Xperia z1 compact
Htc one mini
Htc Evo 4g lte kitkat
I kept getting the same error

I can possibly use the xperia m2 and maybe the grand 2 but it will be much harder because of the screen resolution on thosr devices ill try on those 2 but resizing every png to fit xhdpi is gonna be a b****
