I paid 50 bucks for my moto g. I am dying to root and unlock the bootloader, for a ton of reasons.
Firstly, titanium backup
OTG xbox 360 controller
CM11 and Paranoid android. I love these roms, and they call to me.
Basically with custom roms you open up an entire new way to use android. You get to customize your phone like never before.
don't get me wrong, other than 3g, and verizion prepaid in general I love this phone. But I still want to mess around with it:}
