Hi, here is patched boot image for Moto G6 Plus. Flash it to acquire root permissions on your device.
Please make sure you have June Firmware OPWS27.113-45-4
Please DO NOT flash on different device, this is only for MOTO G6 PLUS (Evert)

Instructions:
1. Unlock Bootloader
2. Download patched boot image patched_bootOPW27.113-45-4.img
3. Flash it with following command:
Code:
fastboot flash boot patched_boot.img
fastboot reboot
Old April boot image OPW27.113-45: patched_boot.img

Note: If you need to restore the STOCK boot kernel, you can get it from 2nd Post below. Thanks @manos78

Hi,

I confirm that this kernel works! So now you can root your device.
Thank you @jekyll86!

If you like to test it by hand (with unlocked bootloader), then "fastboot boot stock_boot-MotoG6+-OPW27.113-45.img" and when running Android, then Install lasted Magisk Manager and then update to BETA Channel. This will generate a new patched kernel boot image using your stock boot.

Regards.

Note: If you need to restore the STOCK boot kernel (for an OTA, for example), you can get it from my backup: https://www.sendspace.com/file/i2dxh4

Hi,

One advise: If you patched the kernel with Magisk or flashed this kernel, then you can't do wipe of data using the "restore function of Andoid". It will fail until you flash the stock kernel.

If you see an error, then reflash the stock kernel!

Thanks, this works perfectly fine with the latest magisk manager (5.7.0) and i managed to get xposed to work as well as gravitybox. I can center my clock again and tweak notifications, navbar longpress and such.

Magisk's package installer did fail to flash xposed but with 3.1.5 xposedinstaller.apk it did work and it flashes and reboots just fine.

I'm working on testing substratum rooted now. I'm just YOLO'ing a AOSP compatible theme on it and i'll see what fails..

If I get into the mood i might even try to flash a 8.1.0 TREBLE version of LOS15.1 or RRO if i can get that TWRP to properly boot via fastboot.

Sorry guys, I'd like to help you but I have only G6Plus. If you want to root, you can follow magisk guide and patch boot image by yourself. It's not difficult

I have a question : you took the original boot.img of the firmware, put it into Magisk app and it gave you a pacthed_boot.img ?
I can't get this process working for the Moto G6 non plus that I got

Thank you for your time !
