I have a rooted Moto G 2014 and im thinking of flashing a new custom rom on it. It is currently running PacMan Rom and i have Xposed and Google Apps(gapps) flashed right now. I know that flashing a new rom will get rid of all my data, but will i lose gapps and xposed too? Also, does anyone know any good roms? Thanks
As of Lollipop all custom ROMs have transitioned to the new
system.new.dat + system.transfer.list format, so the
/system partition will be fully overwritten, which means bye bye GAPPS and Xposed. If you migrate to a different ROM, you'll also need to wipe
/data (not including
/data/media which is your internal storage).
Then again, flashing GAPPS/Xposed again isn't that hard, is it?
As for ROM recommendation, I think it's against SE's rule to do that here (XDA wouldn't allow that either), so better go try everything yourself. I myself am a die-hard CM fan.
