Other suggestions

  • At the end of the Dalvaik section you might add a sentence that says "see ART" [good idea]
  • Maybe a mention about XPosed framewor since it is very prevalent now. [will be done]
  • In the definition of ROM it might be nice toexplain a ROM image [ok]
  • This is something I cannot find: What exactly does AOSPA(+) mean? Alternative? [ I thinck so since it's mostly related do paranoid android rom]
  • Kernel is alphabetically in the wrong position in the list.[Yeah,kernel is drunk,gonna slap him on the face and move to his place]
  • Explanation for the term MOD / Modification.
  • Add cool Android KitKat and Jelly Bean history link [wrong link]

Thanks for the nice list.


OTG missing?

Great post thank you.

I suggest, the add of GPE definition : "Google Play Edition". Especially in the case of Moto G
Was not so obvious to me until I google it.

Another term that might be good to add is AWS since it is a unique factor between Moto G models.

AWS: Advanced Wireless Services in terms of the Moto G is the 3G UHF Frequency of 1700 MHz - 2100 MHz "T-Mobile"
