Moto G Hybrid Kernel

What is a Hybrid?

Hybrid kernel means the core although still has the 3.4.0 kernel label, it has incorporated many advanced features available only on Linux 3.8+ and beyond. I have backported many of those advanced features for Linux 3.4, hence the name hybrid!

Here's the flashable zip file

m - mainline with stock CPU/GPU frequencies

It's compatible for KitKat? Because we don't have a backup boot.img for KitKat rom...

No, I've asked Moto already and they said they are in Xmas shutdown and the source for KK won't be available until next year. You can back up your boot.img and give it a shot, if not then restore.

The way I see it, this device is dev friendly with the cheap price tag. Its a "might as well" device. Unlockable boot loader on a moto device is where its at. I've had many moto devices and the hardware is always well put together.
