Hi @xheon, sounds OK. What sort of antutu or quadrant scores are you achieving with CM11 and pink kernel right now? I do run CM11 on a Nexus 7 and Nexus 4, but personally think its a bit premature to run it on the Moto G. How is your battery life? On Stock+Faux+Xposed I am getting up to 3 days. This is light to medium usage, and a heck of a lot better than I have ever achieved on the Nexus 4 (which I never particularly liked anyway), on the N4 with similar usage I got 1 to 1.5 days per charge.

I'm considering going back to CM11.

Never used the Pink kernel before.

Can you give me some ideas on what changes you made to make it run smooth?

I have tried cm11 but am missing a few features I was looking forward to (that I used to have on cm10 on my SGS) like screeshots, but I know its just the beginning and I haven't used it long enough yet.

I have a question though: on stock ROM, using the button on a standard wired headset won't do anything. It's usually linked to play/pause/skip and more depending on patterns. I thought I would get this king of behavior back in CM but no luck. Are there any ROM supporting this kind of input? Seems like a fairly basic functionality to me.

Long press on the handset opens Google voice search. I had to install Sony smartkey app to get the play/pause/next/prev functions.

I used to use CM on my previous HTC Desire HD and Sensation. But the stock Moto ROM already gives a pure android experience, so no need for CM. Also the stock ROM contains important drivers and is backed by official Motorola updates. I do use Xposed and Gravitybox for some tweaks to notification bar and quick settings.

I think you didn't read my post. I was able to make it work with ART since my first try. My doubt is if anyone was able to run it with Dalvik.

On XT1033, using a dual sim kitkat rom, of course.
