I got it from here,
and I think it's compatible with your phone if.....
This Android 9.0 Pie based Lineage OS 16 ROM is compatible only with Motorola Moto G3 (Moto G 2015) with model numbers XT1540, XT1541, XT1542, XT1543, XT1544, XT1548 and XT1550. So do not try to flash this unofficial custom ROM on any other phone as it may cause permanent damage or even brick your phone. So its always better to confirm your device before moving ahead.
I made and kept a Nandroid backup of the Stock rom on my Laptop just in case.I now keep a Nandroid backup the PIE install with all my apps installed and the phone setup on my Laptop as well.
So many great features in PIE.I've even been able to swap my Return and Recent apps buttons from Left-to-Right as I'm right handed and hated having the Return button on the left
If you do install any Custom rom wait for it's first boot to normal screen(Usually takes quite a while) then reboot to Recovery and do a Factory reset before you set up the phone.I've done this with every Custom rom I've installed on Android phones and it seems to prevent many problems.
I think some people also do a Factory reset before installing Custom roms as well.I can't remember if I did but most likely did .
Interesting. Have you tested MMS and Bluetooth? If those are working, I might just do this.
Thanks for the tips, I keep full nandroid backups too, just in case. I hadn't heard about performing the factory resets during the process but I will do that this time. Is the sequence: factory reset, then boot the ROM, then reboot back into TWRP, then wipe and flash as normal, then boot into new ROM, then reboot into TWRP, factory reset, then finally boot the ROM and setup as normal?
It seems strange that droidthunder instructs you to copy the zip file to internal memory, then wipe the internal memory and then try to flash the zip. Doesn't seem like that would work. Why not just copy the zip to the SD card and flash from there?
