Tested on Indian version, I'm currently running it.
Build is super smooth.
I don't know who uploaded the zip so for credits please pm.

Installation instructions:
- Make sure your device is on the Android 8 Oreo OPSS27.82-87-3 firmware.
- Download the Android Pie OTA update zip from below and transfer it to the root of your device’s internal storage (Meaning, do not put it in any folder. It should be outside all folders.)
- Now, go to Settings > Apps&notifications > Show all apps.
- Click on the 3 dots menu on the top right corner of the screen and then select > show system apps.
- Search for the ‘Motorola Update Services’ app and give it storage permission.
- Now, got to settings > system updates and check for update.
The latest Android 9.0 Pie update will show up. Install normally.

"Kernel settling" is just not true! That was poor information 10 years ago that I haven't heard someone mention in ages...

The code of the kernel does not change or adapt with time. It's static, not dynamic.

How it performs immediately after flashing is how it's going to perform, period!

Anything else perceived is simply the placebo effect!!

The only thing I can see as perceived "settle time" is after just flashing and booting up for the first time, the battery and CPU are going to be warm from the flashing process and thermal throttling might be taking place. After everything is cooled down to normal use, that's how it's going to perform...

It's just lines of code...

So I followed all the directions in the OP and no update is showing.

How did you get yours to work?

Just paste the download zip (do not change the name) into root of your internal memory and grant storage permissions to 'Motorola Update Services' and check for updates.
