Hey guys,

I've been digging through the Moto apps from the X4 to see how much is compatible with my Z, and to my surprise the Moto Display APK works perfectly and upgrade the Z's to that of the Z2 series, complete with the option to reply without unlocking the screen. No root needed, just install like any other APK. Thought I'd share. Enjoy! :good:

Where did you find the Moto x4 apks? Also thanks for the info!

On a Moto X4. :)

I extracted everything that looked useful/interesting, have had limited success with most of the rest though - was really hoping to find a way to enable Night Display without root as it's the only feature of the current gen I'm sorely missing on my Z. A number of other apps install but don't work, like the Moto app (which demands it be uninstalled when launched) and the updated Voice APK which appears to work and completes enrollment yet doesn't respond to the ShowMe commands.

They both don't install on MM. Probably are Nougat+ only apks...:(

    Right, I'm back from holiday.

    Here are the rest of the interesting APKs I pulled from the X4: Google Drive link

    This includes:

    • Smart Lock (for Moto Voice)
    • gallery3d (the local stub that plugs into Google Photos)
    • MotoSound
    • Motorola Update Services
    • Motorola Services Main
    • Motorola SLPC System
    • MotoKey
    • Motorola Notifications
    • Motorola Modem Service
    • MotoHide
    • Moto (the core app the Moto features are accessed through)
    • Moto Voice
    • Moto photo editor
    • Google Launcher Config
    • FM Radio + FM Radio Service
    • X4 Camera
    • X4 Camera Tuner
    • Audio Effects (EQ)
    • OEM Overlay
    • And More!

    NOTE: Only a few of these will install over existing system apps in the largely-unified 7.1.1 build for Moto devices. Of those, very few will work/open at all. Of those, even fewer will do anything noteworthy. In short, these probably won't work - I have tested only on a Dual SIM original flavour Z. I cannot help you troubleshoot these apps on random Moto device #3 because I do not currently have any Moto devices on-hand other than my Z, and also because these APKs have not been modified in any way - this is obvious when you think about it, because they would not install over existing system applications if Motorola's APK signature had been tampered with.

    The functional, easy install of the Moto Display update was the big find here. Who knows, some of the others may prove useful to somebody too.

    That said - here's a few specific notes:

    • The EQ will install and appears to work
    • Motorola Notifications, Motorola Update Services, and Motorola Modem Service all installed for me with no ill effects noted
    • Moto Voice installs and allows enrollment for Show Me commands, but does nothing after enrollment is completed
    • MotoKey installs and can be accessed with activities shortcut manager apps (e.g. Nova launcher's activities shortcuts, QuickShortcutMaker, More Actions et cetera), but force closes
    • The X4 camera installs and works, but it's missing all the other modes and doesn't produce photos any better than the stock app - it's also crashy and you'll get two camera icons in the app drawer
    • FM Radio installs but doesn't work
    • The Moto app update installs but demands it be uninstalled when opened

    If you're using a rooted device and install these as /system apps with appropriate permissions, you may have more luck.

    Please don't smash my Drive's bandwidth too hard, mirrors would be appreciated. :)

    GLHF.

    The Actions APK will not work on [insert device here] running 7.0 because it targets the 7.1 SDK.

    These APKs were not modified or 'ported' in any way, any modifications would break the signature and prevent installing them as updates to system apps.

    I'm travelling at the moment, will share the rest of the APKs when I can.
