Thanks man.

Managed to get magisk working with this rom..alongside twrp

Simply install latest magisk canary APK (284). Give it super user when it asks and restart the app

Then when clicking install...it gave me option of direct install (make sure recovery is selected). It should install successfully

I then rebooted to bootloader and to get to twrp hold volume up after selecting recovery and dont hold anything to boot back to Los..

Can't share my boot image if that helps anyone

I gave it a try. It did indeed let me patch directly. It was very unstable. Things asking for su multiple times and not remembering my choice, certain modules not installing, and I always seemed to lose root entirely after rebooting

rom works great, feels like a new phone.
model XT1952-4.

not working unfortunately is the FM radio.
based on the error message when trying to install FM apps, it looks like the kernel driver was not included in the rom?
I can deal with the fingerprint not working, it would be really nice to get the FM driver included so I don't have to use data.
Overall the phone is so much better with this rom, Thank You!!!!

Hi, probably a stupid question, considering I'm new: what does this differ from the Lineage OS instructions for Moto G7 Play at their web site? I mean, why shouldn't I stick with their instructions?
I just want to understand what is at stake here (again, I'm new at this world of smartphone os's)
I'm really interested in replacing Android (which I like, but it's... Google :( ) and all carrier bloatware stuff by a free OS.

EDIT: Nevermind. I've just realized that it isn't for the G7 Play, it's for G7 only. Sorry about this (maybe useful for other newbies like me)

Thanks for all the work

Everything seems stable been using on daily driver for 2 days now. Only issue is bluetooth audio not working. I'm wondering if the Motorola face unlock app would work however current version isn't available.

I'm using this on a Moto g⁷ Play in the USA, currently it's pretty stable. As for what's at stake, you lose access to Bluetooth audio, fingerprint & faceunlock unless you have SD card formated as portable storage and manage to get magisk working. There's a fix for Bluetooth Audio with magisk or ADB but I don't remember what the command was. Also as for magisk you should be able to fix atleast faceunlock because Motorola uses an app for it.

Thank you very much for sharing. I await your further results if any new issues arise to proceed with installing Lineage OS 17

Good job with the notch feels good to swipe down properly I’m encountering a issue the captive login appears to be broken I can’t sign into any WiFi’s that need a portal entry the portal screen doesn’t come up also I found how to get magisk to work properly With twrp u need the newest canary version and u have to patch directly (have recovery option enabled) which u use the root of this rom to achieve that after that backup boot image in twrp which will leave it with the magisk patched and twrp after reinstall the rom remove the phh root and restore yeh boot image in twrp and reboot to recovery from twrp and install magisk manager just note it’s lineage that makes magisk act up hence certain apps not obtaining root is lineage fault cause with another GSI like havoc which this method works for also (works with all GSIs to my knowledge) there no root app issues or modules not working just noticed that on lineage

workin on fixing phone

Thank you very much for sharing. I await your further results if any new issues arise to proceed with installing Lineage OS 17

phone no longer working because of trying to install magisk but I'll be trying to fix with LMSA and then using @PoochyX's instructions tomorrow

Edit: LMSA is now Rescue and Smart Assistant, I just tried to restore it with this but it needs to be on stock firmware to restore.

Why not just boot into bootloader mode and fast boot stock firmware to recover your device ?

Hi,
From your experience which GSI is better for MOTO G7 Play 1952-2:
Havoc or Lineage ?

It depends on what u trying to do exactly if u a heavy Magisk user u want to stay away from lineage and use havoc since magisk plays well with it if u don’t care about magisk and just want a simple root then this rom be a good experience for other then rom WiFi portal issues this rom it’s excellent cause it’s the only one with the notch fix if that fix was easily implemented out this rom and could be used with another GSI that would of been fantastic...

Thank you for your reply.
I favor stability and performance over Magisk.
In my case, do your recommend Lineage as my best option to try?
