This should be flashable via TWRP. Trying to install via method described only partially installs on A/B filesystem. Download link broken.

Since when twrp is mandatory to flash a ROM ?
I don't get what do you mean by partially. And link is working fine.

Edit: my bad, link was broken, updated.

Make sure you have downloaded the build after I updated the link.
About twrp asking for password, expected behaviour after a data format without booting a ROM to populate encryption bits.

You're not in fastbootd mode as detailed in OP.

Something wrong on your side, make sure you're in fastbootd mode and you have the latest fastbootd binary.

Are you in fastboot or fastbootd?
To get into fastbootd, you need to type
'fastboot reboot fastboot' in a cmd window while you are in the regular fastboot screen.
Then flash the rom.

I installed Magisk and TWRP. TWRP is not required to flash all ROMs, it just works better under normal situations.

Couldn't get this working. Probably because my rav is LATAM distribution (rav, not rav_t). When flashed from fastbootd, I got a bootloop. Thankfully TWRP is working fine, so I could boot stock from the other A/B slot.

Success!

I had a number of issues while flashing this, as follows:
- I flashed TWRP before doing anything to attempt to flash Omni. As it turns out, fastbootd doesn't work correctly with TWRP installed, so I had to restore to stock before trying again.
- The Omni GSI has to be flashed to slot A by doing fastboot set_active a before you try to flash the partitions.
- When flashing the 20200823 build linked in OP, using the instructions listed, I got a "not enough space to resize partition" error. I attempted to resolve this by doing fastboot delete-logical-partition system_a and fastboot delete-logical-partition product_a - this was the wrong thing to do as it caused an issue mentioned earlier in the thread ("no such file or directory" when trying to flash those partitions), and I restored to stock to resolve this.
- I was able to get the partitions flashed by doing them in a different order than listed in OP. I successfully flashed by doing boot, product, system, vbmeta in that order.
- Once the partitions were successfully flashed, rebooting the device caused it to bootloop, showing the Moto logo for a few seconds and immediately rebooting. I resolved this by flashing an older boot.img from the Telegram channel (attached to this post). Flashing the older boot.img with the product, system, and vbmeta from the 20200823 build linked in OP got my device booting.

Thanks to the folks on Telegram for the help in getting this going.

Have you tried updating your fastboot binary? I used to use minimal adb and fastboot until this device. I had the same issue, and had to update the binary to get it to work properly.

    Hi, i'm completely new to all of this. I went into fastbootd and flashed the four img files and than fastboot -w. after that i tried to reboot, which failed, it kept on showing the motorola starting screen and than the warning that i should lock the bootloader. I tried to put it on and off and got the "no command" screen. After that i got the boot failed screen. Than retrying got me back to the loop.
    I'm by no means an expert but sounds like what i did a while back. Sounds like something went wrong when you tried to install the files. Then you wiped phone. It's scary. First thing I tried was booting with TWRP by means of ADB. That didnt work for me so had to find stock image of phone on line then i re-installed stock ROM onto phone.
