I will be maintaining Moto G for SlimRoms and SpaceKiller has been so kind to offer to manage the thread. Will be considered unofficial till after we hit stable which is very soon as we don't want to break anything with the stuff that we have to push to get all devices working. This is coming officially from us Slim Developers.

Testing on xt1031 (Boost Mobile)
Took a bit to install (be patient). Installed with CWM Advanced Edition. Complains of no sim card (xt1031 is cdma). So no sim needed. I currently do not have service, so I can't really test phone functions. But on stock 4.4.2 I did have bars indicating data service (3G). Currently do not in Slim. But, someone who actually has service will need to verify that data is working, among the other phone funtions (I do have bars for cell service). Proximity Sensor was working fine over Groove IP. GPS is working fine (seems to be a issue for some people). I tested with Sygic. FM Tuner working. Camera seems to work fine, Everything is great, but I have yet to dig deep. Nice job!

When I wake the screen, it freezes, then I have to sleep it and wake it again before it works. It's annoying but manageable.

It gets stuck on "Mount Data", did a complete Wipe before, my version is the XT1032
I used Phils Advanced CWM as noted above. Took awhile, but installed fine.
Edit: Anyway to show ram usage in Recent App's?
Yes, takes a long time to install but it's working, don't worry if stays more time than usual in the install process.

Official slim support? Awesome! You said its not official yet, will I still receive OTA updates from this build?

Moto G is supported by Slim, but they are working hard in the stable release and adding new phones means more time to spend fixing issues, so no more official devices will be added until SlimKat becomes stable (probably next week), for now it's unofficial.

La Feria Tx.
So far data seems to be stable. Haven't tried GPS. My battery suffered a little just on stand by. Will post as soon as I try other stuff.

Edit: for some odd reason root did not want to work. I had to flash the super su package for my root apps to work. Any ideas of what can be causing this?
