Android 10 is now being tested on the Moto G7 Play! I will work on uploading dumps of the OS later this evening. Link added. If anyone has any questions, feel free to post them and I'll do my best to answer.

FYI:

* Once you've installed Android 10, your sim card will not work anymore if you go back to Android 9. To fix it, you must dump the Android 10 modem, and flash it to Pie.

* Twrp will break Android 10 if you mount the oem partition. Twrp also will not boot with the Android 10 vendor installed. I will work on this once official firmware is released.

Android 10 Raw Dump: xt1952-4 RETUS QPY30.71

Vendor, Oem, and System are raw images, so you will need to convert them to sparse images and install them with fastboot, or use dd commands to write everything to the correct inactive partitions. Do not complain to Motorola or me, if you brick your phone. This is a soak test, not official firmware. Information and the tools to convert the images can be found here.

Hey there,

Did you receive this yourself? If not, where did you see this? Where is this rolling out?

Is it rolling out for all variants? In any case I'll be waiting a bit while it's established that no major issues have been introduced and downgrade paths are clear.

It's a soak test, not a full release. It's for the xt1952-4 RETUS model only. And yes I received it via OTA. I'm part of their developer program. I'm uploading the firmware in a few min.

Downgrading from this soak test is possible. If you go back to Pie, you must flash Android 10's modem instead or LTE won't work. That's it though.

I have fixed a number of errors and inconsistencies in the Android 10 build.prop. Things like conflicting settings for audio, emmc size, and duplicate entries. The only added tweaks are, 50 step media volume (Useful for Viper), and forcing the home launcher to stay in RAM. Other than that, everything is stock.

Remove .txt then copy to /system and set permissions to 0600 and reboot.

They started the soak test in the US on April the 2nd of May. Brazil just uses different firmware that's why the numbers are different. And yes I'm an official tester.

Not possible. These are direct dumps of the OS. It doesn't come with a flash file unless I write it myself. I personally have never used RSD and wouldn't know what other files it needs to work either.
