So I desperately want to downgrade from oreo to LOS 14.1. My last attempt was a failure. So I have a new proposal.
1. Fastboot flash Nougat (except Bootloader and Gtp)
2. My device will soft brick. (Restarting again and again and showing "erasing" message repeatedly.)
3. Now I fastbot flash TWRP and then LOS 14.1

Wil this work? Kindly help.

Would you still consider maintaining LOS 14.1? :fingers-crossed:Unfortunately everyone is focusing on =>Oreo now.. But I think there are still alot of appreciative N-users out there :D
I know it's been a while since I last posted a build. I will make a build this weekend and post it.

Thanks

NEW BUILD: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=11410963190603848665

Change log: November 18 Security Update

NOTE: Like so many other users, I too updated my device with OREO and stuck with that. I haven't tried downgrading it because I don't want to end up with a hard-bricked device once again. Point here is the new build is not tested. So please take a TWRP backup before using this build. Don't forget to post me even if works fine.

Thanks,
KS

You can use this method to downgrade back to Nougat. I confirm this working on the India variant Moto G5S.

It is time to say goodbye. I exchanged my g5s device for Nokia 6.1 plus.

Journey with g5s was so exciting. With all your help and support, we managed to bring the first custom rom for this device. We managed to come up with tools and procedure to unbrick the device. I thank for all your support.

G5S is one of the solid device. Unfortunately it is a product of Motorola and we required their mercy to get security updates to the least.

I wish everyone all the best. Once again thanks for all your kind support. If anyone wants to take over future builds of LOS14.1, please feel free.

Wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year in advance.

Regards
KS

Thank You for your contributions KS. You made using G5S fun by opening up the custom ROM scene with your Lineage(upon which many others were built). Also, thank You for helping a lot of users revive their dead phones. Wishing You all the best. We will miss seeing posts with the ending Thanks KS :)

I am willing to continue development of montana, a.k.a Moto G5S. But since I personally don't have the device, I need fellow contributors and testers. I already have , Reviver Kernel, a build of LineageOS 14.1 (updated from where @kalyansundhar left) and I am starting Oreo bringup for the device. Interested members may join my testers' group on Telegram at https://t.me/montana_reviver . :fingers-crossed: Here's my github: https://github.com/rajatgupta1998

I'm not sure if I understood correctly: Would you continue maintaining this ROM, that is the nougat version, or is your main goal developing Oreo+? It would be great to have somebody keeping Lineage 14.1 alive - it's simply the smoother choice for the g5s..
Thanx!

     * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,

     * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM

    • Sensors
    • MTP
    • Sound

    Vendor: https://github.com/kayesk/android_vendor_motorola_montana
    Branch: cm-14.1

    How to install the rom ?
    • Copy the rom to your G5S.
    • Restart in recovery (squid or Sevenmaxs)
    • Take a backup of existing ROM.
    • Wipe clean (Cache, Data, Dalvik/ART, System)
    • Install ROM.
    • Make a wipe cache.
    • Reboot System.
    Initial load would take time.

    Contributions :
    @GoldeneyeS2 for fixing OEM bloatware, NFC and releasetools script.

    THANKS TO :
    @squid2 for twrp
    @SevenMaxs for twrp
    All other users who provided support, valuable suggestions and productive comments.

    Report bugs with proper logcat details.
    Device is unrooted. Root using Magisk works.

    Thanks

    Dirty flash should work. If not, try a clean flash. If not, then get back to me.
