Announcement from drtechie: New feature: Flash any ZIP and Unbrick phone!
Moto G5 Plus Toolkit

This is a desktop app that allows you to unlock the bootloader and root a Motorola G5 Plus smartphone with a few button clicks. It's built with Electron and hence will work on Windows, macOS and Linux operating systems.

The toolkit follows the unlocking and rooting procedure for Motorola G5 Plus mentioned here.


Features
* No need of installing ADB and Fastboot binaries
* Works on Windows , Linux, and macOS
* Get bootloader unlock data from device
* Send bootloader unique key to device for unlocking
* Flash TWRP Recovery
* Flash SuperSU
* Commonly used ADB and Fastboot commands
* Bundled drivers for Windows
* Create and Restore backups with button clicks
* Flash any TWRP compatible ZIP
* Flash stock firmware / un-brick

About the Project

I bought this phone two weeks back and as a web developer, had this idea of combining JavaScript and device communication. The project is built on Electron. The basic UI is adapted from Electron API Demos.
The source is available on Github.

Porting it to another device

Porting the toolkit to another device is easy. Change a few strings, variables and necessary files like recovery image and you are done. After all every phone can communicate with your computer with ADB or Fastboot.

Credits

This project bundles the work of many other devs.

*@vache for potter TWRP, boot.img and WiFi patch.
*@chainfire for SuperSU.

Issues
1. TWRP backups saved to computer might fail to restore. The ones saved to phone work fine.
2. TWRP gets stuck on logo if booted instead of flashed.

Day late, dollar short... Seriously, nice toolkit. Will there be an update soon now that @vache just released a new TWRP that supports sd mount?

You'll learn the most by doing things manually! Being spoon fed is easy, but not always necessarily the safest way. (someone might give you 'bad food'). I always like to know what command I give!

Nevertheless: nice scripts!

Does it work on the normal Moto G5, or just on the Plus version?

Agreed. But after a while having to not go through all the steps is pretty nice.
