Default Cyanogenmod 11

Hi !

I have a few questions:
- If I flash this unofficial rom, will it be possible to have official updates without flashing another rom ?
- And also, is it already good for everyday use ?

Thanks !

- nope, you won't get official updates.
- it depends on your needs, check the bug list, if it does not bother you then it is okay for your daily use!

Iv just finally been able to flash it, been on the latest rom for two days, bugs for me are youtube freezing and the lockscreen unlock, which actually isnt that bad, u wont need latest official release because this rom will always be up to date and when the phone gets abandoned, people like dhacker are hero's for us because they'll keep our phone updated

Yes I know the great job devs are doing for us before the moto G I had a LG optimus L7 and thanks to cyanogenmod I had kitkat on it.
But as far as this phone just came out, I'm asking myself if it's good to avoid my warranty just to have the same version of android ...

(correct me if I say bad words because I have to train my english )

Wrong. With CMUpdater, if you're running an unofficial build, the nightlies (when they appear) will show up. Even if they don't, you most definitely will be able to manually flash the nightlies without wiping.

The one exception will be if you want to switch to the new "corporate" release streams from Cyngn if those ever get turned on for the device. Those will require a wipe - but official nightlies won't.
*so much sig updating needed*

An excellent post on "noobs vs. developers"

A few opinions on kernel development "good practices"

Note: I have chosen not to use XDA's "friends" feature - I will reject all incoming "friend" requests.

I am fully aware for that, but I thought he meant Motorola's official stock updates, not CM's official nightlies.
But still, it is risky to flash official nightly updates on an unofficial build.
Anyway, I might be wrong, I came from a device which did not have a official CM build.

There could be risks if you flash an unofficial build from someone who is not at all working on merging a device into CM - they often cherry pick all sort of stuff that causes incompatibilities with upstream to the point where the product really shouldn't be called CM. (I've seen lots of "CM" kangs that had all sorts of extra crap added beyond just doing what is required for device bringup...)

dhacker, however, is an official CM maintainer for many devices, so his builds are the ones that are "on track" for official inclusion.
