Cyanogenmod usually brings a lot of awesome new features to Android and is well known to be one of the most stable ROM’s out there yet Cyanogenmod 12.1 has some serious connection issues on the Moto E. Many users are experiencing a Moto E CM12.1 Connection error to different Google Play services like the Play Store and Google Now.
XDA user Manish_Sky has found a permanent fix for the Moto E CM12.1 Connection error which lies in the Host file as the hosts file from the Moto E and CM12.1 were crossing each other, leaving Moto E users without Google services.
Before we start it is important to know that doing this method will remove your device’s warranty. This method will also only work if you own a Moto E 2015 3G edition with CM12.1 already installed on it.
