I've ported TWRP to the new 2016 Moto G Play. It should work when you flash it, but using it is still a try at your own risk procedure. Your bootloader must be unlocked to use this recovery. Fastboot mode is used to flash or boot this recovery. To enter fastboot mode, turn off your device, hold PWR and VolDn for 3 seconds, then let go.

To temporarily boot this recovery:
Code:
fastboot boot twrp.img
To permanently flash it:
Code:
fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
The download is up on the downloads tab.

Thank you so much for your support. TWRP works perfectly. Although after installing SuperSU, the device doesn't boot. This happened to me on several other devices as well and I don't really understand why it sometimes works and sometimes it doesn't. Any help is appreciated

I even tried the latest beta 2.77 without success.

Good to know. Thanks again squid2! Quick question, how is the SOT of this device? A lot better than the Moto G3 I'm right?

Another thing: cam anyone use the aida64 app and find the camera Id (sensors) for the rear?

1. Install Twrp
2. Back up your phone, just to be safe.
3. Install Automatic flashable zip fix for supersu! - http://forum.xda-developers.com/g4-p...persu-t3464396
4. Install SuperSU: https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/s...1609011115.zip

Reboot your phone. Worked for me 1st time. The phone may restart several times.

After installing supersu, the phone restarted from the warning screen once. After that, the phone booted fine.

Safe to assume this does not work for the Amazon version?

Will this work for the 1601 bell variant? I would think it should as it is a g4 play non Amazon version. At least o would have root till till custom Roms are available. Hey Squid2, great work so far. Is there a way I could send the code for the radio? Kinda of a noob with that aspect.
