Hello and good news everybody!
Sailfish OS on Motorola Moto-G 2013 (falcon), this is a community port!

Status, download, installation...
Sailfish OS is a GNU/Linux based mobile operating system, which is gesture-driven for the ease of use. It runs natively as glibc (not Android's bionic), has bash and busybox (not toolbox), uses Qt for UX, and other opensource projects in its middleware -- which basically is just like a Linux on your desktop, but needs Android drivers for some of device's hardware.
And everything else you need to know:

Status
Working: calls, data, wifi, bluetooth, sensors, camera (with bugs), gps
Buggy: Bluetooth Headset/Carkit, Phone does not go to sleep if WiFi is turned on

TODO List
Call volume?

Installation
Unlock boot loader and install CM 12.1 from the 'Android Base' link above.
FAQ: http://bit.ly/port-user-faq
Install the SailfishOS .zip over the top using TWRP
Keep fingers crossed!
If you just get the bootloader warning screen, hold down the power button to force a reboot, and it will probably work next boot.

Enabling OTA updates
Connect to the phone using SSH, or using the local terminal enter the following (after setting the devel-su password)
devel-su sed -i -e 's#^adaptation=.*$#adaptation=http://repo.merproject.org/obs/nemo:/devel:/hw:/motorola:/falcon/sailfish_latest_armv7hl/#' /usr/share/ssu/repos.ini
version --dup

This will set up the device specific repository to my OBS project, and the version command will perform the update. This will keep you up to date with my developments, but I wont guarantee I wont break anything!
If you do an OTA update now, you should find that vibration will work and the BT MAC address displays correctly in the About screen. These are not in the latest image.

@PiggZ the zip is safe to flash? Because someone ported MIUI or something like this and the phone was hard bricked.. Did you tested the zip before posting?

I tested it a bit. And it seams to be smooth. Wifi worked perfectly
I couldn't test bluetooth.. While playing around with it i went to the Jolla store and tried to log to it popped up with an error that said "Problems During device IMEI registration. Device IMEI wasn't saved".. After that i went to the Warehouse appstore and i tried to enable a repository and it said
"ERROR occurred
Transaction:/44_dececeed
Status:no-distro-upgrade-data
Could not configure Normal more"
Oh and one more thing MTP didn't work

You install CM 12.1 first then you flash Sailfish os on top of Cyanogenmod. That's it

No problem, And one more thing. You might wanna back up your current rom you're running on your moto G just in case you wanna go back
