Tested on Indian version, I'm currently running it.
Build is super smooth.
I don't know who uploaded the zip so for credits please pm.

Installation instructions:
- Make sure your device is on the Android 8 Oreo OPSS27.82-87-3 firmware.
- Download the Android Pie OTA update zip from below and transfer it to the root of your device’s internal storage (Meaning, do not put it in any folder. It should be outside all folders.)
- Now, go to Settings > Apps&notifications > Show all apps.
- Click on the 3 dots menu on the top right corner of the screen and then select > show system apps.
- Search for the ‘Motorola Update Services’ app and give it storage permission.
- Now, got to settings > system updates and check for update.
The latest Android 9.0 Pie update will show up. Install normally.

Since when do you need permission to reupload leaks? OP already has them, just upload them to AFH yourself and edit the post.

Link is up again. Flashed, a bit of lag comparing to the last 8.0 build.

Dumb question: does VoLTE function properly?

Can't tell you that, not supported in my country, or at least by my network.

More than likely the new kernel needs some time to settle in before performance really flies.

I have it for a few hours, it feels better, bit still has a bit of lag here and there. I'll probably do a factory reset tommorow to see if I can get some more juice...

"Kernel settling" is just not true! That was poor information 10 years ago that I haven't heard someone mention in ages...

The code of the kernel does not change or adapt with time. It's static, not dynamic.

How it performs immediately after flashing is how it's going to perform, period!

Anything else perceived is simply the placebo effect!!

The only thing I can see as perceived "settle time" is after just flashing and booting up for the first time, the battery and CPU are going to be warm from the flashing process and thermal throttling might be taking place. After everything is cooled down to normal use, that's how it's going to perform...

It's just lines of code...

I'm not experiencing any kind of lag, in fact it's faster than oreo.
