Hello everyone.
This is a
HELP
thread
for asking questions regarding custom ROMs and the issues that you might have with them for this device. Before you post, please read the FAQs at the bottom, and then proceed to ask your question.



  1. Note - the members may or may not provide you a step by step solution, and will provide you links, please check those links carefully, and if you still do not understand, ask your question again.​
  2. If the community notices real issues (which are different from the usual "Does this work, does this not?" questions), it will be forwarded to the respective ROM thread (or we'll request you to forward).​
  3. Help us in keeping the custom ROM threads clean and help the developers to focus on important issues.​

Device Specific Information

  1. Codename athene in development circles. Here, we often use G4 and G4 Plus interchangeably with athene. That's why ROM titles have the word ATHENE in them. Don't be confused.
  2. Device names according to manufacturer - XT16xx. The xx in the end changes as per region. For instance the Indian version is XT1643.
  3. For more information regarding the device, and the availability of ROMs, etc, go to this [INDEX] thread.

Yes, the INDEX thread is mine, I'm not self promoting, I'm linking this because the older one has not been updated in a long time, and no amount of messages to moderators seems to have any effect. If you wouldn't mind, please send a message to the moderator to make this the sticky INDEX thread to help Moto G4 Plus users.

Note: this information is out of date.

Common bugs

  1. Fingerprint enrollment issues. Flash Nougat to resolve this. No, you have to flash, if you don't want to, please do not post bug reports. Follow this guide by @rahulsnair to update your phone to Nougat soak test. We have a soak test because the release version has not yet been captured for us to use. You can also (although the developer still won't accept bug reports) rename the fingerprints to add more (credits @mason2smart). Also, try this as mentioned by @__Maddy.
  2. Camera/Video recording issues. Use the built in camera, NOT Moto Camera (the camera you had on stock ROM) as your camera. You can also use any other recording app (Cameringo, Motorola Camera, Google Camera all work just fine). And yes, Motorola Camera is different from Moto Camera. Camera issues are being sorted out by the CyanogenMod team (and will reflect on all ROMs that are based on CM), and only once those issues are sorted can the developers for this device sort any issues with ATHENE out. Note that for Moto Camera to work, you need to set the DPI (Settings > Display > Display Size) to the default one.
    1. Video playback issues. Please use this thread by @strongst for providing logs and other details. The only OS that doesn't seem to be affected by this is Vanir.
  3. Unable to share images/screenshots from gallery or filemanager. Sort this one out by formatting your internal storage. Credits @smitharro, here.
  4. Chop-Chop/ Torch issues. Do a reboot. It should work then.
  5. VoLTE issues. Follow the instructions on this thread, if that doesn't help we need logs, or we really can't help.
  6. Mobile data intermittently stops working. See this post.

    CyanMod/RR bugs

  1. Camera issues. Update in next build.
CypherOS bugs

  1. Video Recording doesn't work. Use Footej/Cameringo Lite for now.
  2. External SD read error in inbuilt file manager. Use another file manager.

LOGS
(and why we keep asking for it.)

Imagine you make a cake. And you give it to a person, who says he doesn't like it. And then leaves. You have no idea what went wrong with your food, why that person doesn't like it, what that person would see as an improvement in your cake. You eventually go mad as more people keep saying they don't like your cake, and leave without further information.

This is exactly what happens when you state your bug (that the developer cannot easily reproduce) and then leave it at that. The developer cannot figure out what went wrong. So, to find out what could possibly have gone wrong, (s)he requires a log. The log tells the developer what all errors have occurred, and what could be done to possibly fix them.

Logs are also known as logcat (and other types). Find a helpful tutorial on how to take logs here.
Best way to present logs is to either upload the file to a hosting site, or paste the contents on pastebin, or hastebin, and share the link here.

How to report issues here
The aim of this thread is to become a source for all members to ask questions on issues they face in all ROMs. So report your bug after specifying the ROM, and the build date. For instance, if I am using CyanMod from Silesh.Nair, which he uploaded for use on 21st April 2016, then I start my issue as
CyanMod 20160421
and we'll help you sort out your issues as much as we can, and if we are stumped, the developers will help you out. :)

Solution For Single FP over MM baseband

If anyone don't want to Flash Nougat Soak or Modem, follow this procedure ( I'm using 5 FP over MM baseband )

** Firstly you will need Fresh start **

On fresh start complete setup wizard process, DON'T add security and FP when asked..

After seting up device go to
settings > security
Add your preferable unlocking option,

Now for FP,
Add your 1st FP, it will get successfully enrolled,
And now you have 4 FP left to add..

** Follow common procedure for remaining 4 FP **

Now add next FP ( add one FP only)
Obviously you will get "Enrollment Error" on any next FP..

After every Enrollment Error Close Setting app completely ( Force stop is preferable, or better do reboot)
Now open Setting again and do same...

*** Note ***
Don't add next FP directly without closing Setting app otherwise you will get "GHOST FP"
You will be not able to remove those FP unless getting Fresh Start again...!!

Count how many FP you have added, i haven't tried adding 6th FP, so better to count 5 FP only..

I'm no expert, but to the best of my knowledge, these will be upstream bugs, so devs will have to wait for CyanogenMod team to fix them, before they can implement the fix.

2g issue, i'll take a look. Maybe some change from me botched it.

Is 2g working on other roms or is it a problem only on CyanMOD?

About your second question: I can't reproduce that.

Are you sure you're on the latest (N) baseband?

N baseband does not work with custom roms. At least not for me.I installed soak test N and I stopped being able to make calls when I installed the roms. I suppose they only work with the MM baseband.

Well then you supposed wrong! Moreover it's a NEED for a proper use of all functions of all 7.1 custom roms!

You are right, but I install everything as it should be and even when I restart the device not to the sign of the sim card.I'll try again and see if it's some mistake I made.

    In the fight against the lazy and ignorant users: CM thread from @Silesh.Nair is closed.
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=70064668

    Yes, I closed it because it's becoming too much to handle. When users don't accept their faults inspite of giving them visual proofs that things work, it makes no sense to argue. And after all the denial, there comes a sorry in the end.

    Don't worry. Updates will come regularly. You can use the OTA app to update it. I am just removing the platform for the lazy/ignorant to keep trolling. Once it settles down a bit, I will reopen it. Else it's unfair on the other users.

    I'm testing this too. If it helped @zeomal, @Silesh.Nair and @rahulsnair should pin it as workaround to the help/rom threads in case somebody read it accidental [emoji12]

    Typed with my own hands.
    I have made the change in the source. The next build will have it on cm-oms.

    Sorry, I don't use Allo. Don't have any friends or family that use it also. So I can't tell you anything useful. WhatsApp is the standard, I'm afraid.
    Do any of the nougat custom Roms have a stable build yet? I mean not a nightly but a snapshot or official stable build? Last time I tried a nightly it was horribly buggy and unreliable. Please don't say use this ROM or that ROM. They are all more or less based on the same code with different overlays and kernels. I see official in the titles but the Roms are nightlies. Any suggestions?
    Virtually everything here has CyanogenMod as a base. There were only nightlies, since our device only just became official when CyanogenMod ceased to exist. This is the best you can get so far!
    However, calling these nightlies, 'horribly buggy and unreliable' is an insult to the developers! The latest builds are really good! For instance: I'm using the latest official CM14.1 nightly and the CyanMod oms version (dualboot). They are both completely reliable!

    Completely agree. I have been running on RR for the past two weeks and have hardly faced issues. It's my daily driver. Apart from couple of minor niggles, it's been rock solid.
