How to get the stock firmware of Moto G5 Plus Indian variant (XT1686)?

2018-10-20, 12:52 PM

I want to download the stock firmware of XT1686 for relocking the bootloader in future if required.

But the official page for downloading factory image has only four download links for Moto G family the latest being that of Moto G4 (XT1625).

Hence I want to know how to get the stock firmware for XT1686.

Is Motorola going to release it soon?

What if I go to any customer service centre and ask them to give me the firmware for some money? Are they authorised by Moto to do so?

Please reply at your earliest convenience.

You can ask the service center to flash your phone. They may do it for a fee. 

 

No one here knows if they will release any ROMs or not. You can also try the Lenovo moto smart assistant

Thanks for your quick response @AlphaDog.

It seems that going to the service centre is the only way for now.

I didn't know about the Lenovo Moto smart Assistant though. I will definitely give it a try.

But Moto should release the official firmware. I think the problem is a large number of variants for every device in every region. But still it would be better if they release them for the convenience of users by providing the region specific firmwares on the websites of the particular regions.

Is there any way to give feedback to Moto team directly to do so?

If yes please reply.

I got the stock firmware of XT1686 after some digging. I flashed it via fastboot and also relocked the bootloader.

With your permission I will post the download link on this thread.
