Question Do NOT Convert from CN ROM to Global ROM (CN ROM Officially Supports Google Play Services)

Search This thread
Does this work with all Google services? Such as Google pay, assistant and so on? Debating buying the phone on aliexpress as there's a sale.
I've been using X30 Pro (stock ROM) for a month.

Work fine:
  • Play Store (build-in) - it can't update itself, but can be updated from moto App Center
  • Contact (need to install Google Contact Sync from moto App Center or from other apk source, otherwise account sync will not work)
  • Google One, Gmail, Keep, Docs etc
  • Google Pay - no issue with adding credit cards, and NFC payment
Things that do not work or partially work:
  • Google Assistant - voice matching option greyed out, so hey google does not work. Voice input works however.
  • Android Auto - not working

I have been using X30 Pro as well. Another things that do not work with CN ROM is the nearby share.
 
我的设备已转换且 bl 已锁定。这就是我的想法,我不知道:) 它现在甚至还没有解锁:)

更新即将到来并安装,没问题。

BL 已锁定且没有警告消息。


即使不是这样,我也想重新转换设备,因为CN rom中没有语言,据我所知,只有CN和EN语言。
我的国家土耳其和我的语言土耳其语

你的问题有点无意义。不是每个人都必须懂中文或英文。为此,可能需要这个过程,例如我👍🏻
你好Hi, did you convert the rom and relock, how did you do it, is Netflix still L1.

i asked someone who has the global one & he said VoLTE is working!

It's working already, i know that too. Volte seems to be active in most of those who take screenshots in the Motorola TG group. This is the case with Chinese version devices, even if you convert, the problem persists. It was the same in the Chinese versions of OnePlus devices, it was fixed when the A13 update came, volte was automatically activated in all versions(China, EU, GLO).

Toggle to ON and you can now install Play Store and use it to download your favorite Google Apps.

NO issues whatsoever. As simple as that.
This unfortunatelly is only partially true, not working on CN version even with google services activated:
- Backup of Apps over google
- Samsung Health
- Samsung Wear
- Google Wear
(all of them will not work to connect samsung galaxy watch 5)

Any ideas?

I read read that indeed you can remove some CN apps but not all without invasive tinkering that I know nothing about.

    Don't convert. Motorola's "ThinkShield" policy is stricter than any other OEMs. Once you unlock the bootloader, you can never re-lock.

    You will also get a nasty "bootloader unlocked" message whenever you restart your device.

    And lastly, you can never update your software over-the-air because of unlocked bootloader.

    Wrong. Bootloader can be relocked without consequences (when done right) and OTAs work with unlocked bootloader.

    Hi, I know, but I like being able to install magiks roms by fastboot, etc. I'm already testing the Chinese stock version, much better than the retail one.

    My device is converted and bl is locked. That's how it came to me, i have no idea :) It's not even unlocked right now :))

    Updates are coming and installing, no problem.

    BL locked & no warning message.


    Even if this was not the case, i would like to convert the device again, because there is no language in CN rom, as far as i know, only CN and EN languages.
    My country Turkey & my language Turkish

    Your question is a little pointless. Not everyone has to know Chinese or English. For this reason, it may need this procedure, for example I👍🏻

    Read below :)
    Pls don't spread false information that bl can be RE-LOCKED because Motorola modders know it will brick your phone :)


    Dude, i don't give information to "lock it". I wrote "It was sold to me like this, i received it like this" look there, read it well, don't be idle(y)

    For those who are planning to buy from Motorola China (CN ROM), do NOT convert to Global ROM! Do NOT buy from an online retailer where the phone has been converted to global ROM.

    This is a warning to everyone if you don't want any headache in software support.

    Reasons why you should NOT convert to Global ROM:

    1. You can NEVER re-lock your bootloader - your phone will get BRICKED if you try to re-lock your bootloader.
    2. You can NEVER update your software over-the-air. Do you want to own a phone with an update-less software? Yes, this is NOT possible as there will be an error message everytime you try to update your phone's software.
    3. There will be a WARNING MESSAGE ("Your bootloader is unlocked.. etc") every time you restart your phone. Do you want this nasty message to ruin your phone's software?
    4. Google Pay will detect your phone as tampered won't meet security requirements.
    5. Streaming platforms and banking apps may not work once your phone is rooted.

    Why do you NEED to update to Global ROM when in fact, CN ROM OFFICIALLY SUPPORTS Google Play Services.
    1. Just go to Settings > System > Google Play Services
    2. Toggle to ON and you can now install Play Store and use it to download your favorite Google Apps.

    NO issues whatsoever. As simple as that.

    Well thank you for the insight...for sure this Istanbul's guy is someone from Motorola or at least has some Motorola tools :D

    There are service boxes we call "Box", this friend is Turkish. It's not from Motorola, it's a software developer. I don't know exactly, but he's famous in his business. As i said, there are many such people here. There are some Syrians, even Iranians. They can solve insurmountable problems with the service equipment (different manufacturers) we call this "box", these works are quite famous in our country.

    For example very famous this Box: https://sigmakey.com/

    That these devices can "force flash" the event. In other words, they can flash firmware without the need for any unlock code or processing.

    For example very famous again(update list / writing edge 30 ultra:):
