Moto G Stylus 5G
Just got one over a week ago, so far I have root w/ lsposed, This "Moto G Stylus 5G" section is technically the thread for this device, but I see most of the 5G users using the "Moto G Stylus 2021" section or "Moto G Stylus 2020 (Moto G Pro)" section, so make sure to look at those sections for community tools and roms that may support this device.

Bought a 5G Stylus a couple weeks ago it's nice finally having a moto phone that doesn't destroy fine details due to heavy noise filtering on the main rear camera, the ultra wide cam isn't so great quality wise but it can take some interesting shots at least.

I'd still like to see what a Gcam port would be like, it did wonders for my previous G7 Power's camera abilities.

Moto G Stylus 5G | 2021 question

last moto phone I had (see previous posts ...G4) I rooted because I had to disable 'tethering provisioning', even though I bought the phone unlocked.

do I need to do that to this one too???

looking at 6mb/256 mb version.. update bought it.
hope to root and have a phone running again ssoon!

Are you serious?! That's the whole reason T-Mobile forced me to buy it.
If the "moto stylus G...XT2131-1" is this forum's Moto G Stylus 5G (2021), then the phone doesn't yet support 5G either; ATT calls their 5GExtended 5G, it is not. they appear to be moving toward true 5g this year sometime, but their "5G" is 4G+tweaking. T-Mobile network does support true 5G

from motorola page, Moto G Stylus 5G (2021):

Device not compatible with all networks; compatible with T-Mobile® 4G and 5G, Verizon® 4G and 5G, and AT&T® 4G networks.

I cannot find a TWRP that specifies it can work with this device, the Moto G Stylus 5G (2021).
is there a safe version, or are the 5G owners waiting? I hadn't seen any TWRP that listed any Moto stylus models of past few years either.

Related: I'm getting ready to move my apps/settings/data from my current G7 Power, to this new Stylus 5G. While I am able to backup all except system via ADB to my computer, I had read the bridge is not as stable or reliable as it had been, especially on restore.
Is there a comparable tool that can be used like ADB, without unlocking bootloader or rooting?
Thus I started looking at TWRP and how to go about rooting (either of my Motos, G7 or Stylus 5G). Peeling through the onion, I have seen several notes that unlocking the phone bootloader will wipe all the data. Is this true? If so, it changes the process a bit.
Having the bootloader unlocked appears to be requirement of rooting, if not please correct me. I want to root the phone so that full backups w/app data, and other maintenance are available.

Unlocking bootloader wipes phone on every phone I've ever had.
