    Phoronix: UBPorts' Ubuntu Touch Ported To The Moto G 2014

    If you happen to have laying around a Moto G Gen 2 (Moto G 2014) device, it can have a second-life now running UBPorts' Ubuntu Touch software stack...

    Convergence will be a little difficult without MHL/HDMI. But when I get a new phone I'll definitely give it a go

      Someone wanting to give a second life to the moto g 2014 could use LineageOS, I've been using it as my daily driver on my moto g 2014 and it has been running silky smooth. It also supports the data partition formatted in f2fs which is a huge help in keeping the device responsive, ext4 and slow flash do not mix well.

          That device still has a first life.

            it is a community port, so it does not waste resources as it is most likely done by someone who wouldn't be able to contribute as much to any current devices.

            Sure, it is not very forward-thinking, but neither is it a big problem, since it's not the UBports project that's wasting their resources.
