One wonders if Lenovo/Moto is more focused on selling hardware regardless of how buggy it might be six or more months after introduction, rather than selling a polished product with timely updates.

 

 


You hit the nail in the head. Look at all the complaints that happened when Lenovo took over the think pad line of laptops. 

Lenovo buys a company then comes out with substandard devices with poor customer support. It's their history.

How big is their development team?

What else do the people on the G5+ support?

 

Could there be conflicts between the May upgdate and the Verizon fix?

Of course it'd great is they didn't use things like qfuses to prevent roll backs and released full packages so that if you took a bad/wrong update you could just roll back to a previous version.

That said, I can't find where anyone has tried to flash the latest system partition over the May version (possible with some other partitions). Part of the reason is that we don't have full releases to work with. All we have is the OTA incremental fix.

Well, some are out there. But there are issues with versioning (ie can't roll backfrom certain releases).

 

I'm not clear on the sources for them or which versions can be flashed over which.

I don't know if you could flash NPN25.137-43-5 over top of NPNS25.137-35-5, or if you could roll back from NPNS25.137-35-5 to NPN25.137-35.

(Edit: looks like you can't go from 35-5 back to 35 easily. GPT and bootloader changes. And if you use the method I found I don't yet know that you can go to 43-5 from that)

I haven't found where anyone has tried either.

Also, not seeing much that works with fastboot or RSD Lite. Most looks to need TWRP.

 

 

But the point of my post was that if they released full versions that could be used with tools like fastboot and RSD Lite it would solve the problme of taking bad updates (whether buggy or breaks the update path).

And if they didn't use anti-rollback garbage, you could replace any bversion with any other version.

Exactly, you can't roll back to work around the version to version upgrades .. I couldnt roll back from 35-5 to 35 or to 15. I can't flash any rom without errors so i gave up and looking for a used v20 or g6.

V20 is huge. The G6 looks good though, but the verison that you can unlock is still $450.
Hoping the V30 push the price down some. Or maybe the G7 will.

The unlockable G5 is priced well now ($250), but not much 3rd party support.

I posted else where that I wish I had known about that G5 (RS988) before I bought the Moto G5+.

Can anyone from Lenovo comment if the RETUS update (NPN25.137-83) released today has the fix for Verizon VoLTE issue.

https://mobilesupport.lenovo.com/us/en/solution/MS122856

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Moto-G5-Moto-G5-Plus/OTA-Update-on-retus-channel-August-Security-Patch/td-p/3827556

 

If not, will installing this August update impact receiving the Verizon VoLTE patch if released at a later date to those of us with the May 1 update who are still waiting for the VoLTE patch?

Did the update, but I'm going to wait a few days before I give a verdict.

 

But I'm hopeful.
