TWRP Flashable Stock builds for the Moto G4/G4 Plus

As you all know, Moto has finally released the first Oreo soak test for select users to test. Thanks to @rajatgupta1998, we all get to try it out

About these builds
This is the stock firmware, repackaged to be flashable in TWRP Recovery. In an effort to make these zips safer, I have removed all bootloader and gpt (partition table) related items.

Requirements
-> Unlocked bootloader
-> TWRP Recovery Installed (or booted)

Installation
-> Download the TWRP Flashable zip (Links below)
-> Place zip on device (internal or external storage)
-> Reboot to TWRP (or boot it)
-> Flash zip && Profit

• G-Drive -- TWRP-athene-8.1.0-OPJ28.111-22.zip

Other Notes
* If you want to root, use Magisk and just flash in TWRP immediately after flashing the newest Oreo build. The latest build now fully passes SafetyNet and shows the device as being Certified in the Play Store.
* If you're already on the previous Oreo build (OPJ28.108 - November Security Patch), you can easily update to the latest Oreo build (OPJ28.111-12 - December Security Patch) by dirty flashing. If you want to keep root, you'll still need to flash Magisk again after flashing the newer build.
* To root the Nougat build(s), you will need to flash a custom kernel, then flash Magisk (same as before).

This IS the Moto Soak test build. I've just made it TWRP flashable and safer for everyone to use. But yes, to answer your question, the issue with the Camera and Flashlight tile taking a few (5 or more) seconds to open is present here. There isn't anything I can do about that, however when Moto releases a future OTA update and have fixed the issue, I will make a new zip and post it here.

I will also make a nougat build of NPJS25.93-14-18 that is TWRP flashable as well for anyone who would like to be on stock nougat or easily revert back to stock nougat.

For curiosity: Would any of the (32 bit) custom kernels work with this ROM?

About this build
What is different about this versus what's already available? Basically what I have done is taken the previous 7.0 (nougat) firmware and directly patched it using the 8.1.0 (oreo) OTA zip from this thread. In an effort to make this build safer for everyone to use, I have left out any bootloader related items which is what can potentially prevent you from being able to downgrade. If this had been an official release, I would also have removed dm-verity (and forced encryption) as needed also. But being this is a test build from Moto, they have yet to enable such features. Now, on to the good stuff.

Requirements
-> Unlocked bootloader
-> TWRP Recovery Installed (or booted)
-> You may or may not need to be on stock nougat prior, need confirmation on this

Installation
-> Download the TWRP Flashable zip (Links below)
-> Place zip on device (internal storage or external)
-> Reboot to TWRP (or boot it)
-> Flash zip && Profit

Downloads
Oreo 8.1.0 Soak Test (November 1st Security Patch)
AFH - TWRP-athene-OPJ28.108.zip
G-Drive - TWRP-athene-OPJ28.108.zip
md5sum = c995bcb22215346e362195447de686f8

Other Notes
Currently as mentioned in the other thread, the build doesn't fully pass SafetyNet as it's a test release. You can use Magisk modules to fix this if needed.

You can also easily root by flashing Magisk immediately after the TWRP zip or any time afterwards.

Waiting for the Nougat build! Really need to go back to stock. Thank you for your work!
