Stock Motorola KitKat ROM Collection

The goal here is to offer easily flashable versions of Stock Motorola ROMs. They should work with any Custom Recovery.

The collection will ONLY consist of Android 4.4.4 (or newer) KitKat ROMs due to the "Battery Loss Bug" present in older versions. Additionally, 4.4.4 includes the Heartbleed security fix.

If you would like to further optimize these ROMs, check out my Debloat Scripts.

First boot can take a while, don't panic.​

Untouched Version:
Nothing removed, nothing added. Pure Stock.​

Optimized Version:
Stock Kernel
Debloated [Removed Files] (Motorola apps still available in Play Store)
Zipaligned
Rooted
Busybox
ART | MultiROM compatible​

How to flash:
1) Boot into latest TWRP and Format Data (Wipe > Format DATA > Yes) - This step is essential, and will wipe Internal Storage (Downloads, Music, Photos etc, **backup important files**)
2) Transfer ROM to Internal Storage. This may be done in Windows via MTP, or using adb sideload or adb push ROM.zip /sdcard/
3) TWRP > Wipe > Factory reset and flash ROM.
4) Reboot.

NB #1: If you experience 'Settings' force-close; flash a 4.4.4 Radio from here.
NB #2: Gapps isn't necessary as Google Play Store is still present - Login and download your apps.
NB #3: If you get an 'encryption' message with GPe ROMs - Flash a 4.4.4 Stock Kernel or custom Stock-compatible Kernel (Faux, Phantom or XPerience)​

Miscellaneous: -= Flash via TWRP =-
Latest SuperSU - Flash via Custom Recovery
Modified Stock Messaging app (for GPe ROMs)​

Frequently Asked Questions:
What is this Collection?
All of these ROMs are created from the Motorola Factory Firmware images. A pure source, unlike a dump of an OTA Updated system; the upgrading process patches, moves or deletes system files. The result is possibly bugs being introduced, and files being left over. These ROMs are completely clean, and any bugs you find are genuine Android issues.

Why is 'Battery Saver Mode' missing in Optimized ROM?
This feature is part of MotoCare which is removed during the 'debloating' process. There are many Battery Saver apps available; try DS Battery Saver.

Why is the 'clear all' button missing in 'Recents'?
This is also a feature of MotoCare. One solution is to install Xposed Framework and the GravityBox module. Setting is under 'Miscellaneous Tweaks.'

Tell me about Google Play Edition (GPe) and F2FS filesystem?
F2FS was created at Samsung in 2013 for use on Linux-based operating systems. As its name implies, Flash-Friendly File System is a file system designed specifically to cater to the specific characteristics of NAND-based storage devices.​

GPe uses EXT4 filesystem for the 'userdata' partition. All other models of Moto G use F2FS.

If you have converted your Moto G to GPe using one of the available tutorials, you probably have formatted your 'userdata' partition to 'EXT4.'

Not only does this make the phone incompatible with Stock Motorola ROMs and custom ROMs / Kernels - some people also believe it affects performance. TWRP custom recovery has an option to reformat your device back to F2FS:

WARNING: This will erase 'internal storage' including photos, music, videos. (Backup ROM zip and important files to external storage via USB OTG cable)
Wipe > Advanced Wipe > Repair or Change File System > (select 'Data') > Change File System > (choose F2FS)​
It is possible to use GPe ROMs with a F2FS formatted 'userdata' partition. See note under 'How to Flash' above.​

This looks damn awesome, but as we know there are no multilanguage support in stock ROMs.
Are there more languages in these zip files?

Please bear with me, this was my first attempt at creating a ROM.

hi cheers for this

tried the optimized xt1032 rom - does not seem to be rooted, SU app does not work for example
Strange, it was working for me. I'll try again today.

I just wanted to ask
in the framework folder there are files .odex why?
This already deodex?
I used a kitchen for this, and it looks like not everything was deodexed. But most files have been. I'll try again shortly.

Installed XT1033 version and got stuck in Android logo, since I cannot mount USB through CWM or TWRP I cannot install any other ROM, any ideas?
I'm assuming you flashed the 'Optimized' version. Have you waited long enough for first boot?

Other options:
Have you ADB / Fast boot setup? I'm not sure if it's the Kernel or something else. Either way, to recover, you can use fastboot to flash the stock firmware image. Alternatively, you can send this zip to internal SD via adb: adb push "Moto g XT1033 stock 4.4.zip" - Here is a zip for XT1033 stock kernel and modules.


MIrror links mega not working
dual sim optimised please
Some countries block Mega. You need to use a proxy server to access the site. When the zips are confirmed working for everyone, maybe people will offer mirrors.

@lost101 I have converted my XT1033 into GPE, can I just flash the zip meant for dual SIM and go back to default ROM? It will save me a lot of time from all the fastboot flash hassle! :p
The conversion to GPE formatted your USERDATA partition to EXT4. You will have to change it back to F2FS which it was originally. PhilZ Touch Custom Recovery has an option for this.

    Was it a successful test?
    A ROM based on the Retail Brazil 'Soak Test' would not boot with my Bootloader (v41.13) - however the TWRP backup will boot on my phone. I haven't investigated why, but will try again when a final OTA Update rolls out.

    There are numerous issues that may be due to this being a 'Soak Test' (unlikely) or due to not having the Lollipop Bootloader (v41.18) (more likely) - as I say, it's better to wait for a final version.

    hi, i really love your rom... im using it since september and its the best rom for moto G, good battery life fast and stable
    do you will develop an android 5.0 rom ? i will love it
    When the OTA Update arrives, I will make a ROM zip - if someone provides a nandroid backup of an updated system. It's really only to help people that get into problems with Android 5.0, since it's very possible none of the KitKat firmware images will work after they upgrade their Bootloader.

    In other words; assuming a factory reset doesn't work - fixing serious problems with Lollipop could be impossible until Motorola firmware images are available. But hopefully a ROM based on an updated system would be a temporary solution.

    As Motorola Lollipop firmware images become available, I will make ROMs based on them.

    Please could you confirm me that flashing this zip will allow to update next version lollipop with ota? Other thing I hope this action don't reactive the boot loader ?
    There is now available an OTA zip for Retail Brazil. I will test this weekend.

    @lost101 Do you have any plans on doing a flashable zip of lollipop?

    P.S.: it's just a question :)
    I plan to build a Stock Motorola Lollipop ROM this weekend for Retail Brazil.
