The Motorola Moto X (2014) now has Android 7.1.1 Nougat based Cyanogenmod 14.1 available for it. The custom ROM was released last week and has been making daily Nightly rounds. Nightlies are the fastest update rings provided by CyanogenMod. These Nightlies come with a few bugs but eventually these bugs get ironed out with time.
The Moto X (2014) was no slouch when it came to performance thanks to Motorola going with a pure stock philosophy and top of the line specifications. That being said, CyanogenMod squeezes the best out of this device bringing added functionality and extra performance boosts. Of course you will need to have your device unlocked and rooted. The procedure to get that done is over here.
Motorola doesn’t seem to have any upcoming plan to update the Moto X (2014) to Nougat. They also seemed to have crossed out the Moto G 3rd generation out of the Nougat update list much to the disappointment of Motorola fans around the world.
