On Jan 5th an announcement from CyanogenMod official website, The “L” is for Lollipop, stated that the ghost devices are on CM team's top list to release CM12. The first OFFICIAL nightly was released on Jan 5th. :p

With that said, we can expect that within a month we, the glorious Moto X users, should be able to run OFFICIAL CM12 Lollipop on our device!:p

Based on Lollipop 5.0.2, CM12 has completed 85% (Jan 6th) for their initial CM12 M release, but overall the nighlies are much more stable and suitable for daily driver at this point.

Please note that before flashing any new CM12, make sure you you have already flashed CM11 in your phone. Here's the complete instruction link if your device bootloops after flashing CM12: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=58000929&postcount=8

Here is the latest CM11 M12 release: https://download.cyanogenmod.org/get/jenkins/90775/cm-11-20141115-SNAPSHOT-M12-ghost.zip

If you need full instructions to flash this rom, please go to MOTO X Q&A. I'm sure there're bunches of posts that can help you out.

Here's the download link:

Apr 30th:
Some time around late April, Cyanogen released nightlies based on lollipop 5.1.1


Feb 20th:
Outgoing call bug is fixed. Bluetooth is working. Moto X twist to open Camera is added. For those who want to flash CM12 but are concerned about its stability, now it's time.

Jan 23rd:
For those whose devices won't boot up after flashing, please go to this post for help :) (credit to ##W4TCHOUT##)

The phone mic is confirmed not working yet, other minor bugs are still expected.
Theme engine is back!

Jan 6th:
Please note that the previous CM11 features, including Theme Engine, Quick Settings reorganization and customization, Sound panel customization, etc., are not implemented yet, but CM team claimed that they are on their way bringing them back to Lollipop.
Snaps are slightly different from the ROM itself because they come from different devices such as Nexus 5 and Nexus 7.

All credits go to CM team. I myself take no credits from this ROM.:)
Credits also go to all developers who contributed to Moto X unofficial CM12, it was you guys that brought the first taste of Lollipop to us. Thank you so much!:D
Flash at your own risks, none of the developers takes legal responsibilities for your potential bricked phone.

I'm getting a bootloop on T-Mobile variant. Anyone else?
Same here on XT1052, I've succeded to boot it twice, but then I had to reboot due to some weird outputs from the memory that each app was using, then no matter what I've tried I was stuck in a bootloop. :(
I went back to stock KK with a nandroid backup.

Another weird thing is that I couldn't flash the official ROM with any TWRP on my XT1052, in order to do that I had to delete the first line in the updater script (where it verifies your device identity). Maybe the TWRP is still bugged for my version :confused:

Hey. I am in TWRP 2.8.1.0, is it possible to install it with it? Or what do I have to do?
Thanks!

You can avoid bootloops by flashing CM12 over CM11 that has been fully booted at least once. Clean flashes and flashing over pretty much anything else will bootloop.

Clean install on xt1060 went smooth... almost. Lost root. Posted a question in the Q&A with more details. I do love the ROM though. Been using it for a couple of weeks now.

Sorry, my bad. I forgot it was disabled in the Dev Options.

Thanks man, starting from stock KitKat I did:
- flashed latest 2.8.0.3 TWRP with fastboot
- booted in recovery (DON'T let the stock ROM to boot)
- factory reset (wipe data + cache + dalvik cache)
- flashed latest CM11 Nightly
- system reboot (let CM11 to do the first boot)
- reboot to recovery
- flashed CM12 Nightly
- double wipe (cache + dalvik cache)
- system reboot

Then the CM12 booted :D

Too much work. I'll wait for a ROM that can boot without all that crap :D

EDIT:
Oh yeah, forgot to mention that the Android version is 5.0.2, not 5.0.1: http://www.androidpolice.com/2015/0...-built-lollipop-5-0-1-rolling-select-devices/

It's based off of 5.0.2, not 5.0.1. The initial post was a typ-o. Also, my quick settings looks different than the one pictured...anyone else?

A note before flashing CM12

Before flashing any CM12 nightly, make sure you have your phone running on CM11, otherwise your phone will get into bootloop.

    We got firsts commits merged on CM13 official changelog. So, we have an official build soon!

    Please note that before flashing any new CM12, make sure you you have already flashed CM11 in your phone.

    It's no longer necessary to flash CM11 before flashing CM12.x as of the cm-12.1-20150424-NIGHTLY-ghost build. The problem is corrected in this commit: msm8960dt: Address fuse denials on clean install.

    People still need to know that first boot with a full GApps package may take 8 minutes or more for the boot animation to go away and the first setup screen to appear. The old behavior where after 90 seconds or so the optimizing apps progress dialog would appear to let the user know something is happening during this time will be restored with this patch that hasn't been commited yet: Show Optimizing app dialog on first boot.

    Looks like the outgoing call bug fix is being merged for the next nightly
