Thanks, so just to be sure, In order to update my moto g6 without erase my data I have to use fastboot and the following command :


It's not obvious for me (I want to update to ALI_PPSS29.55-37-7-10_cid50_subsidy-DEFAULT_regulatory-XT1925-5_CFC.xml.zip). Thanks :)
Don't use this line.
Code:

Hi, I take the liberty of renewing my request. I wanted to reset my phone to sell it. I follow your guide to re-lock my bootloader but I have this error :
Code:
(bootloader) Not in unlocked state

I try to restore my phone by using "Rescue and smart Assistant" but I have this error :
Code:
f /!\ Fastboot Flash. Flash failed. Please try again.

When I start my phone with power button + volume down, it's written ;
Code:
flashing_locked

Thanks in advance for your big help :)

I Don't know.
Says the bootloader is locked.
Code:
(bootloader) securestate: flashing_locked

If you use the unlock code, what happens?

Thanks for your help, If I use the unlock code (fastboot oem unlock UNIQUE_KEY), I have :
Code:
(bootloader) invalid boot state
OKAY [  0.002s]
Finished. Total time: 0.002s

My boot screen displays "Your device has loader a different operating system".

If I want to update android I have this error "the integrity of the system is compromised" (translate from french). I got version PPSS29.55-37-7-10.

I suspect that only fix is booting into EDL mode and use a blankflash, then reflashing the correct firmware with fastboot.exe.
Even then you might still get the
'different operating system' ⚠️

I am getting below issue while trying to flash latest TWRP for Ali:

target reported max download size of 534773760 bytes
sending 'recovery' (16194 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.363s]
writing 'recovery'...
(bootloader) Image recovery failed validation
(bootloader) Preflash validation failed
FAILED (remote failure)
finished. total time: 0.410s

I am flashing from stock ROM, updated with whatever latest OTA updates were available till date.

Hello everyone. I have a Moto G6 XT1925-5 (Ali_DTEU) 32GB.

My phone auto updated to Android 9 (when previous reports had been it would not be capable of running 9) and became laggy. I tried to reinstall Android 8 Oreo. I got the official code to unlock the bootloader from Motorola at one stage installing TWRK 3 and wiping everything. I could not reinstall Oreo so I installed Pie again.

Android 9 Pie is now running but when booting into Recovery Mode the screen shows this warning "Your device has been unlocked and can't be trusted. To learn more please visit: motorola.com/unlockbootloader ID: "

Is there a way to remove this and return the phone back normal out of the box status (although now with Android 9)?

Thank you for taking the time to read my concern.

From what I know, the "Your device has been unlocked and can't be trusted" message cannot be removed, but you can cover it up with a boot logo. Here are some.

    Does the G6 have the A/B System partition for Seamless Updates? I've checked my G6 and Storage says System is 6.5gb. On my X4 Android One that has Seamless Updates, the System partition is around 13gb.
    True (A/B seamless update) in Moto G6+. I don't know in the plain Moto G6.
    I discovered it when I do the first update after purchase my unit. The seamless update is fantastic!

    Will the bootloader be unlocked ?

    Bootloader can be unlocked, haven't unlocked mine but my code seemed to be ok in motorola's page.

    Moto G6 has not A/B scheme. Only Moto G6+ has A/B scheme

    Q. The g6 Plus has a gyroscope, why can't I take photospheres with the default camera? Do I need the Google Camera?

    Q. The g6 Plus has a gyroscope, why can't I take photospheres with the default camera? Do I need the Google Camera?

    A. amswered my own question - installed the latest Google Camera and when that failed, tried the last version until I found one that worked. This is the one I have installed:

    https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-inc/camera/camera-5-1-018-177624777-release/

    Also, HDR, Slow-Mo and background defocus all work too on my G6 Plus!!
