Note This device is still running on armv7, although the processor supports aarch64. If you own it, change it and test it that way.
Note There is no available motorola-aljeter device package
Note There are G6 Play variants (-jeter, USA?) that use the MSM8920/427/Adreno308 quad-core chipset. All variants apparently have SKU XT1922-x. Check /proc/cpuinfo via adb, or fastboot getvar all. According to Wikipedia, Snapdragon 427 and 430 are pin and software compatible.

How to enter flash mode

  • Power + Volume Down buttons

Installation

  • Bootloader must be unlocked
  • Installation with pmbootstrap flasher should work, but currently only installation from recovery (TWRP) has been tested.

Known Issues

  • No 3D acceleration (A505 is supported with freedreno in 3.18, so that needs testing)
  • WiFi can scan, but connecting fails, looks like memory allocation problems

Mainline

The mainline fork for Motorola Moto G5 (motorola-cedric) should help with this. Need to investigate what other drivers are required.
