    Default Can't install custom Roms on Moto G

    I can't seem to be able to install any custom Roms on my Moto G. I have tried an unofficial Paranoid Android and both the official and unofficial CyanogenMod ROMs. I have an unlocked bootloader and a custom Recovery (TWRP at the moment, but I have tried with ClockworkMod). I did make a backup of my stock ROM and that flashes so my phone works, but I want to be able to use CyanogenMod because of all the customization features. I do consider myself to be fairly experienced here, so ask any questions you might need.

    Welcome to the forums.
    Are you using perhaps too new a version of TWRP? I know that can be a problem sometimes.

    I don't believe so, I also have tried CWM with the same problem

    Actually, and I probably should have mentioned this in the first post, I can flash the ROM, but when I boot my phone, it gets stuck in a boot loop. At first I thought it rad just a problem with the ROM, but it happens with everything I try.

    Do you mind if I hijack your thread? How did you get cwm or twrp recovery on your phone? I've rooted using fastboot now I can't get recovery to flash :-( stuck with no custom rom. I've tried to work round it and Googled it to no avail. Always used Odin before.

    Yeah... Can't use Odin now :-) I flashed recovery using adb, I'm sure there's some guides online.

    Which version of TWRP are you using and what CM version?
