With the Moto E line of phones being popular, and with multiple variants within the line, it can be difficult to tell what ROMs, recoveries, and other items are compatible which device. The model # can be important when determining what resources to use or perhaps more importantly what resources not to use. In the interest of greater clarity here is a list of the different Moto E models #s with brief descriptions. Now up to 12 of them.

It should be noted that in CM ROMS the model # is not reported by the OS (at least for Otus) but removing the bezel reveals a slide out paper tag paper tag (on the opposite side from the SD/SIM) which shows model # IMEI and SN. You can also see the model by booting to bootloader and selecting "Barcodes"

Please post this type of info/threads on General Section of this Forum, this Orig-development Section belongs to ROM Developers/Development only.

P. S, Mods, please move this thread to General

I put it in Dev for good reasons that benefit us all and there is a case to be made for doing so. If the Mods move it in spite of that so be it. Also if you are replying to me as you seemed to be doing (addressing me directly by implication) please use the reply function.

Here is the reasoning behind placing it in Dev:
-------------------
Since the purpose of this thread is to clear up the confusion that abounds in all the Moto E Dev threads and since that confusion could result in wrong items being flashed and damage to devices, there seems to be a strong case for posting it in dev.

It seem like just a list of models but the importance of that list to dev is huge yet it this information is lacking in the dev threads. Also by posting in Dev it will reach more people (those who browse through the Dev threads from the top down instead of searching for keywords).

With the aforementioned in mind, moving it to general would undercut its reach and value to Mot E dev so so could you please tell mewhy the move to general?
-------------------

As I said, If it stays in general so be it. It will still reach most folks (but not all) who it might help. BTW - do you not appreciate that someone bothered to make this list? You are welcome :)

You're also missing:

Moto E, (2nd Gen), 4G/LTE (CDMA), XT1526 - for Sprint (Sprint Prepaid, Boost, Virgin Mobile), USA
Moto E, (2nd Gen), 4G/LTE (CDMA), XT1528 - for Verizon Prepaid, USA

There may also be a CDMA version for US Cellular but I don't know what the model number is.

Thank you for those additional details. They help make it even clearer how Motorola has the line organized. I'll incorporate them into the original post.
