The most notable features of Moto X are Active Notification and Google Now voice activation (Touchless Controls). While Active Notification lets you know the notification without needing to unlock the device, the Google Now voice activation lets you search, call, text or play music without touching the device.

We have set down a list of custom ROMs for Moto X for specific carrier, dev and international GSM.

1. SlimKat (Unofficial, Moto X Unified All Variants): SlimRom is famous for its classy, system-wide dark interfaces. As its name suggest, it is a slimmed down ROM, but at the same time feature rich alternative to all other android operating systems.

2. Eclipse Moto X (Verizon Moto X): This ROM is based on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat for Verizon Wireless. The main advantage of this ROM is that it retains all of Motorola’s features such as Active Notifications, Touchless Controls, etc, but removes all Verizon bloat removed such as VVM, Backup assistant, navigator, etc.
