Moto X (2nd Gen) gets Android 8.0 Oreo via Lineage OS 15
You can now download and install the LineageOS 15 based on Android 8.0 Oreo on your Moto X 2nd Generation (Moto X 2014) Smartphone.

Google recently launched the Next Iteration of its Android Operating System Android 8.0 Oreo. The Tech Giant also pushed Android Oreo source code to AOSP, helping the developers develop custom ROMs for their devices based on Oreo.

Well, if you are a Moto X2 owner, then this recent development might be of interest to you. Developer "Anderson Mendes" has successfully ported Android 8.0 Oreo LineageOS 15 on the Moto X (2nd Gen). Additionally, most major aspects of the phone are working as expected (such as RIL, WiFi, Bluetooth, etc.), but it's still not suitable for daily use because Camera, NFC are still not working.

You'll need to Unlock Bootloader and Install TWRP Custom Recovery in-order to Install the LineageOS 15 Android 8.0 Oreo Rom on Moto X 2014 Victara. You can grab the Custom Rom ZIP file from below.

Android N Nougat for Motorola Moto X 2nd Gen 2014 : News , Release date and more

Motorola released the Moto X 2nd gen back in 2014. Dubbed as phone of the year, the smartphone was loved by most of the people. The phone came with KitKat, got Lollipop and then was one of the first to get Marshmallow. Will it get Android Nougat now?

In this article, we will talk about moto X 2nd gen's Nougat update

I'm sorry to disappoint all of you, but the answer is no, you are not getting Android Nougat. The phone was launched in 2014 and Google's policy of software updates cover just 18 months past its release. But the phone did have one hell of a run, seeing three Android versions pass through it. 

There's some good news though, the phone has a great developer community and custom ROMs supporting it will be released by the end of the year, so you will be able to play with all the new features that come with Nougat.

We will keep this post updated through the rest of the year to update you with all the news. Moto X2 will likely see most of the popular roms like CyanogenMod 14 and others available as soon as they are released. 

Although it's sad that moto X2 won't get Nougat officially, please understand that it's had a great run and that it's almost two years old by now, so its update would degrade its performance.
