I'm not using a memory card. The only backup I use is Google sync.

Forgot about the Open Network Notification option (which was enabled post 8.1 update). Disabled that one too. Another datapoint; post factory reset, post 8.1.0 update, on a 64GB Moto G5 Plus with Open Network Notification disabled.

@ bennor,

Impressive if that is last performance battery performance screenshot of your G5 plus. Get the feeling you are on Pole Position now in this thread. You can surely read, analyse and act. Wished the rest did also. You proved a succesfull pilot.

 

Havent figured out yet how to give Kudos .

Good to have you on the team.

@alankrita

You can, on youtube circulate videos how to do it. However, had same problem on older Android versions and some people proved to that can get such motos on Oreo to normal. I have two video links in an earlier posting in this thread, one Spanish , one english language. Why not try the remedy steps given in this thread?

 

You have to restart on nougat all over also downgrading, so you might as well factory reset and not reload unnecessary apps and change a few settings. It might be that conclusion is that Oreo is better OS...

 

I heard all kinds of comments when XP was replaced by windows 7 and then afterwards by windows 10 . To be honest 10 is best sofar if you ignore wrong advices from windows support team.  Only thing I ever degraded was an iPhone and it did not help because certain update destroyed wifi chips. Modded , custom rommed, rooted Android TV boxes. Wouldn't do that on my business phone. Because there is a bloody good reason not to install stuff from untrusted sources. Suddenly your box or phone is taken over by some guru possibly wanting some bitcoins or a payed upgrade to his personal business. Been there, got burned, recovered.

 

If you have a g5 plus don't like YouTube I give you this link

https://unbricks.com/unbrick-motorola-moto-g5-plus-firmware-downgrade-bootloop/

 

Note I do not support the link and certainly not the outcome of the venture. You are on your own. I do not even promote it.

 

For other versions Google around but the procedure gives you some picture of such venture. I noticed tonite in local Aldi supermarket over border in Germany that a G5 completely outsold for 99 euros/ piece.  G6 is widely available here...now..

Due to many issues & complaints I haven't updated from Nougat to Oreo yet. My battery performs OK, ie. no battery-drain issue here. I'm very glad I've refused the update.

Has anyone found a reasonable workaround yet? My phone is completely unusable right now thanks to the update.

Is your phone able to find your local provider, or have you tried to select the local provider manually?

This is what I found. Somehow the CPU usage management has changed on version 8.1.

 

It uses all the cores together even for a simple processing. On version 7.0 it wasn't looks like this. You can install this app called CPU stats and monitor the usage of the cores.

 

I have noticed the leve of the CPU usage has changed dramatically for some unknown reason. Maybe CPU management on v 8.1 has issue.
