An easy way is to boot your phone into the bootloader with the power and volume buttons, or by connecting your phone (need ADB enable in developer settings by tapping 7 times on build number) to a PC with a terminal running "adb reboot bootloader" (without quotes). If you have 52 in the version numbers, you have the Nougat version.

Thank you for the super speedy reply! I've recently updated to Nougat 7.0, and my bootloader is AO52 - so therefore I have what is being called the "N" bootloader here...?

Perhaps you can offer some advice to help me on my quest to divorce google... I'm aiming to install custom ROM without Gapps installed. I'm a newbie, but I've learned a lot about ADB/Fastboot/Autoflashtool/TWRP/Bootloaders over the course of the last couple weeks. I did successfully install the latest LineageOS 17, but it wouldn't recognize my SIM card. Some searching indicated this is common issue, and yet uncorrected... So I thought I'd try to roll back to an earlier version of Lineage that actually works.

Is this older 14.1 version what I'm after? I'm not a power user, just don't want big tech constantly scoping out my colon...

Can anyone recommend a source for GOOD replacement FX30 batteries for this device? I've replaced mine twice already, and each "new" one I get is worse than the last. I'm guessing they made a bunch of extra batteries for these back in 2015, and after sitting on the shelf for 5 years, they just aren't much good anymore.

Do you happen to have Discord, because if you do we can chat on there for a bit, as it would be much easier and quicker to explain stuff. I'm actually going through the degoogling process myself (and I'm a content creator) so I've already have quite a bit of stuff setup (although not everything yet).

You indeed have the N bootloader.

L = Lollipop
M = Marshmallow
N = Nougat
O = Oreo
P = Pie
Q = Android 10 (https://www.androidpolice.com/2019/08/29/google-android-q-dessert-names-queen-cake-quince-tart/ Google ditched the dessert name scheme from here on)

While on the stock OS, the Moto X Style would go close to a day without needing to be charged again.

But with LineageOS, it runs out of juice every 8 hours or so. And gets very hot in the process as well. The phone by itself still works well otherwise.

Would anyone happen to have any suggestions?

I get about three days on a charge with the original battery with no heat problems. I also use a slow charger because I don't think fast charging is good on the battery. It sounds like you have a process running out of control in the background. Go into settings/battery and see what process is using up battery. Also if your using gestures only use the pickup mode. The hand wave tends to be too sensitive tending to keep the phone awake more. Magisk and Exposed can also cause problems. I also keep my battery saving mode on efficiency and turn off everything I don't use like bluetooth, location and even data when not needed. The last thing I would do is a fresh install formatting data, cache, dalvic and system. But also make sure you use the right TWRP version for your bootloader. If on MM bootloader you want to use an older version like twrp-3.0.2-0-clark, but if on Nougat bootloader maybe use twrp-3.3.1-0-clark.

Battery problems have been a nagging problem on this phone. It has been said that the charge control circuit resides in the battery but I am skeptical. I have been amazed at how rapidly the TurboCharge charges the battery. I have been gradually getting suspicious that TurboCharge harms the battery and gets eratic charging and charge readings, particularly on aftermarket batteries that maybe were not made for that rapid a charge. TurboCharger says 2.85 amps "regular" 5v and "TurboCharge" 9v which could certainly be excessive in the quest for speed. I have also switched to a "slow" charger of 1.0 amps. My initial impression is that this may be the answer.

Thank you for your reply.

I checked the apps section under the battery section. Nothing seems amiss there. I have disabled all the gestures for now. I will keep this thread posted if that helps improve this horrible battery life.

The phone is not rooted, so no Magisk/Exposed modules either. The fresh install is the last step for me too. I am on the Nougat bootloader. I have used twrp-3.4.0-0-clark.

As for the charger itself, I too believe that the phone heats up a lot during charging and it can't be good for the battery itself. But with the rapid discharge, waiting for a 1A charger to charge up the battery is a compromise that is hard to make. :\

mm bootloader only

Always a good idea to do a backup when dirty flashing.

Thanks again to the Lineage team for the updates.

Thank you so much for this. I've installed it on a spare device and it works pretty great. My question is, which gapps package should I install, or specifically, "Full" vs. something larger - the main question is should I replace the stock camera from Lineage with whatever is in the Gapps - which camera is better?

Go to https://opengapps.org/ and pick Arm64, 7.1 and whichever size you like. Pico leaves the smallest footprint and installs the least junk. I haven't used the google camera in quite a while so maybe install it next to the Lineage snap camera. I would also do a backup in TWRP of the clean rom in case you don't like it. The moto camera is quite good but whenever I did an update it would remove the camera and had to be reinstalled. Maybe someone has fixed that since. On some phones I just leave gapps off and install the apps seaparately.

I just mean which camera is better - the one from Lineage or the one that replaces the Lineage camera if you install anything larger than Full from the gapps?

I can't tell you withiout installing google camera. I haven't tried it in years. Try installing it from the Play store and see how it works. If you don't like it you can always uninstall it.
Thanks for the response. Unfortunately the Google Camera doesn't show up as installable from Play Store. It seems like I have to flash it with gapps or not have it all. LineageOS camera either I get it from the OS flash or not at all. Such a dilemma. And the Moto camera I can still get from the Play Store.

Is there perhaps a way to tell the gapps package to not remove the Lineage camera after installing the Google Camera from gapps?

It looks like the only way your gonna get google camera is open gapps stock version and higher. Google no longer supports anything below Oreo. There's no way to not overwrite Lineage camera unless you know how to change the install script.

    @Wheels564 I flashed back to stock. Then I installed TWRP 3.3.1-0 and clean flashed this nougat ROM. It starts up into the Goggle login but hangs at Google Assistant and can't get past it. Thoughts?

    Addendum. I think my motherboard is borked.
    Did you try a clean flash without google to see if it boots properly? Sometimes you just get a bad build of gapps. Maybe try formatting each partition in TWRP instead of just wiping. If you flash stock again and everything works ok then I would have to think trying an older gapps.

    Edit: Just don't format EFS partition unless you have a backup.

    LineageOS is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 7.1 (Nougat), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

    Code:
    #include <std_disclaimer.h>
    
    /*
     * Your warranty is now void.
     *
     * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
     * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
     * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
     * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
     * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
     *
     */

    LineageOS is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). LineageOS does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

    All the source code for LineageOS is available in the LineageOS Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to LineageOS, please visit our Gerrit Code Review.

    Google apps addon:
    OpenGapps: http://opengapps.org/ (you'll want a zip for the ARM64 platform, Android version 7.1)
    HEADS UP: Be sure you flash the gapps package with your rom. If you boot your rom, then go back and try to flash gapps after the fact, you're gonna have a bad time.

    Anyone know if anyone is planning on ,or is working on a Oreo/LOS15 version for the X Pure?

    Yes, I haven't had much time lately to work on it. I have it booting. You could probably find a somewhat-functioning build by scavenging my AndroidFileHost :p
