Install Stable CyanogenMod 11 KitKat on Motorola Droid X

Install stable Android 4.4.4 KitKat CyanogenMod 11 custom ROM on your Motorola Droid X. One of the best things about Android devices is the developer support. Even if the manufacturer stops the support for a specific device which means it will not update the OS version anymore, the developers will continue supporting it.

The best case is with the Motorola Droid X. This phone was released on 2010 with Android 2.1 Eclair. It was one of the best smartphones back then. It had a 480p screen, 8 MP camera, 512 MB RAM and Texas Instruments chipset. Motorola decided to update the Droid X only to Android 2.3 Gingerbread and then dropped the support for this device.

If it wasn’t for the developers, the Droid X would be stuck with Gingerbread forever. But thanks to the developers, Motorola Droid X users received Android Ice Cream Sandwich, then Jelly Bean and now, they can enjoy a stable port of CyanogenMod 11 with Android 4.4.4 which is the latest KitKat version.
