[Guide] Update Rooted (Magisk) Motorola Device

This is a General Motorola Guide

Mention me by Posting "@sd_shadow" I'll help you as much as I can...


  • Download the stock firmware for your device.
  • unzip find the servicefile.xml open it with a Text editor, Like Notepad++
  • Copy the code, and paste @ https://kfhost.net/flashfile
  • you get a list of flash commands.
Android SDK
I usually just copy the files from platform-tools folder to the firmware folder

I also place a copy of cmd.exe in the firmware folder

Minor Update
With Minor updates, the old boot.img is the same as the new one.
Skip or remove these commands (you may not have a recovery.img)
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot flash boot boot.img

Major Update
With big updates the boot.img will need to be repatched
Run all the Flash commands
Reroot using the method used before.
