Would any of you fine ladies and gentlemen happen to know how to force this device into BROM mode? Hardware key combinations are not working. I'm guessing I'll have to short test points but, as of now, I'm not finding any info specifying which test points need to be shorted.
Any input or feedback is welcome. Thanks

In a nutshell I'm hard bricked. Although the Tonga is included on the list of supported devices on the Moto Unbricking utility by XDA Senior Member @mark332 , I'm unable to initiate BROM mode for device recognition.

    Hey bro can you do me a favor have you tested it all completely out for bugs? Let me know which ones there are if any... Also what process did you use did you use fastboot flash system_a?
    Read this to the "T'.

    Install Android 12 Pixel GSI instructions:
    1 Unlocked bootloader
    2 Windows laptop or CPU
    3Your Region Stock "Tonga" firmware from lolinet.. and the PIXEL 12 GSI firmware from GitHub. Product.img file to resize the GSI (see attachment)
    Open two folders on computer and put Tonga stock firmware in one and the GSI 12 ROM in the other folder along with the product.img file and the vbmeta.img from your stock firmware.
    4.Turn off device and on the computer open a command prompt inside the Stock firmware folder.
    5.While Holding "volume down" connect phone to computer you'll be in fastboot mode.
    6 Flash stock firmware using these commands. Just copy and paste into the command prompt.
    (After about 10 minutes phone will reboot to stock welcome screen)
    This is Metro by T-Mobile so if using a different stock firmware only difference is the number of (super.img_sparsechunk) so check your stock firmware folder and add or delete any super.img_sparsechunks commands if see Metro by TMobile has "24" of them..

    Ready to flash Android 12 let's go!!!!

    After you see welcome screen turn off device.

    1.Open Pixel GSI 12 folder and open a command prompt inside the folder
    2Connect phone to PC and put back into fastboot mode.
    3Copy and paste these commands to flash the ROM .(Note the GSI you download and unzip the name will be pixel..ab..slim....img..Rename it to "system.img")

    fastboot set_active a
    fastboot reboot fastboot
    fastboot flash product product_gsi.img
    fastboot flash system system.img
    fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
    fastboot -w
    fastboot reboot

    After about 10 minutes you will boot up to Android 12 Pixel ROM. Yay..

    Now to get Bluetooth ,VOLTE,MMS and SMS working follow these instructions.

    1.Go through the set up screen and set up everything "offline" uncheck all options .
    2 Go into settings and look for "PHH Treble Settings" (Magic happens here) lol
    Go to "MISC Features and check these three boxes for Bluetooth fix

    "Use alternative way to detect headset.."
    "Force -disable A2DP offlload"
    Option called Bluetooth Workaround( check Mediatek)

    PHH Treble settings
    3 Go to "IMS Features" and check the last two boxes then hit "install ims for Mediatek.." then lastly hit "create ims apn"
    4 once the ims apk downloads, manually install it from the notification drop down. (Don't reboot if it says to)
    5. Open stock GSI ROM phone dialer and type
    *#*#4636#*#* Three options will appear choose 'phone information"
    6 Change data option using the little arrow drop down to (GSM WCDMA LTE (PRL) see full image.
    7 Reboot phone,,,, Once rebooted go to mobile data settings and check the VOLTE options... ...Now test calls and text you should have VOLTE BLUETOOTH in call voice, MMS,SMS everything working like me...
    8 Root if you want ,,same way just patch the boot image with magisk manager 23 or 24. And fastboot flash the magisk boot.img.
    Profit... Now set up your phone to your liking.
    Product.img to resize any GSI to fit any device.

    Oh I have no bugs to report.

    I new this GSI rom

    was special. I decided to get a free Motorola G Power (2022) (Tonga) from MetroPCS and after root I said I remember reading LTE and mediatek phones were having less issues.

    So I said I'll flash this on my new moto g Power 2022 and wow ... VOLTE works... Bluetooth... everything....yessssssss!!

    Forget my stylus 5 G and 5G ace this is my new daily driver....View attachment 5525479

    Just joking, congratulations 👍

    On another note, this isnt the right place for your device. Looks like a forum hasnt been created yet for the 2022 g power.
    Bonus !!!!!Android Auto works on this rom
    First rom I ever had that supported AA

    Geekbench on a11 single core "183" mulitcore "983. Now on A12 look at the boost jump Single ""814 Multi "3160..
