Disclaimer: I am not responsible for anything that happens as a result of flashing these files. Your destiny is your own.

What is Radio Firmware?
It is the software responsible for your mobile phone signal and on older devices may control wifi, bluetooth, and GPS (on most newer devices, these are handled by the kernel and ROM).

Flashing an alternative Radio / Modem firmware may improve (or diminish) battery performance, network signal strength, and roaming capability. Stock Kernels are provided here as a backup; the real performance gains are found in custom kernels.

Flashing Dual Sim radios onto a Single Sim device or vice-versa may result in a permanent brick. Likewise, CDMA radios are only for those devices. Be careful.

I've created this thread to collect flashable images of Stock Radios / Kernels for Moto G. All images are flashable with CWM / TWRP.

If you can help; please upload your dumped firmware images (compressed) and I will create a flashable zip. When posting, state: Model (XT10XX), Android version, Country, Baseband version and current Firmware (i.e Carrier or Retail) and in the case of kernels: version info.

Firmware Dumping Methods: *ROOT REQUIRED*
When you type 'su' using either method, you need to grant the permission popup that will appear on your phone.

Radio:

(1) Terminal on handset: Install Terminal from Google Play and run the following command:
su
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/modem of=/sdcard/radio_firmware.img


(2) ADB on PC:
adb shell
su
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/modem of=/sdcard/radio_firmware.img


Kernel:
adb shell
su
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/boot of=/sdcard/kernel.img


Follow one of these threads to get ADB working:

Windows:

MAC: (SDK not needed, adb zip attached)

2) Wipe Dalvik Cache (CWM > Advanced)
3) Flash Radio or Kernel .zip (If Kernel, also flash 'Stock Kernel Modules')
4) After flashing has completed, reboot.

Tips:
(i) No Wifi after flashing Stock Kernel? Flash 'Stock Kernel Modules' above
(ii) How to restore missing Enable 'H' and 'H+' icons.
(iii) The Xposed Module Intelli3G has some useful options i.e Force 'WCDMA only' mode.
(iv) DS Battery Saver can dramatically improve battery-life. (Xposed module)
(v) How to flash Radio Firmware via Fastboot:
mfastboot flash modem NON-HLOS.bin
mfastboot erase modemst1
mfastboot erase modemst2
mfastboot flash fsg fsg.mbn

The intention is to create recovery flashable zips using a partition dump of actually installed firmware rather than created from stock firmware files (NON-HLOS.bin/fsg.mbn) which I have found do not work properly.

The zips would currently only contain a dumped .img of the modem partition. From my experience with previous phones flashing this partition was enough. FSG can be dumped also if necessary.

EDIT:
Quote:

It turns out that the "fsg" and the "backup" partitions are meant to take copies of the modemst1 and modemst2 partitions - this can be done/forced by executing "reboot nvbackup" in terminal or with adb. So these partitions are meant to hold the backups of modemst1 and modemst2.

Just to clarify; your sig says Dual Sim, but the radio from XT1032 Single Sim? XT1033 is the Dual Sim model.

I flahsed the XT1032 Stock ROM because I don't use the second SIM and the icons and incompatibility with GravityBox activates my OCD lol ...

It would be helpful if you can state what Stock ROM image you used? Claro / Nextel / Vivo or Retail.

You run the command when phone is in Android and with USB Debugging enabled under Settings > Developer options.

ADB instructions added to OP. If you need a full ADB guide. search XDA. Thanks for helping.

Two quick Questions
1. are radios carrier specific I would have thought Phone type and location only.
2. have gpe on my uk 1032 and flashed ( 340.63.00R - Vodafone UK) but to be honest can find no difference not quite what I expected.
