yes OTA is included ( also some other things )

yes it is official stock firmware, I was also able to re-lock my bootloader as well, something which others have said isn't possible right now, unfortunately Moto aren't providing updates to this model anymore so OTA update service is kind of pointless, NPP25-337.15 is the last update for this model of the G5, other models of the G5 did get a NPP25-337.33 update with a newer security patch which does work on the XT1675 model but someone from Motorola would know the system was tampered with if an update that's not available for this model was installed, that's why for the past 3 days looking for the XT1675 stock software and eventually found it

OTA for the model isn't working? What!? Why!?

Motorola aren't exactly slow with updates, they would have done it by now, the latest software for our model is 1st Jan 2017 where as other models atleast got a security update a few months later

i've created a proper project page now, use this one - https://forum.xda-developers.com/g5/development/moto-g5-official-npp25-137-15-t3733919

I have XT1675 and have a security patch from November 1st 2017. Motorola has officially announced they will upgrade this device to Oreo.
In fact, I am pretty sure that there is no difference between the firmware for the XT1672 and XT1675. In fact, I am pretty sure that there is no difference between the firmware for the XT1672 and XT1675. The thread below (4th post) gives a version that I and someone else can confirm works for the XT1675, and I believe is the most up to date version.

I know the one you are on about, I used it 2-3 days ago.
Even though the official software for the XT1675 has an outdated security patch ( 1st January 2017 ) which I do dislike since another models ( XT1672 ) updated firmware works perfectly, This is for people who want to go all the way back to official XT1675 software that came with the phone. I have also seen 3-4 people ( there could also be more ) ask about how to go back to stock for the XT1675 version with the NPP25.137-15 software but got provided links to a firmware that doesn't officially belong to this device, how long ago did they confirm they will upgrade to Oreo because they seem to be taking a while compared to what they used to.

and yes this method is for fastboot ( bootloader lock method also available )
a TWRP flashable zip is in the works but obviously there is no bootloader lock for TWRP

The version he is providing is software from another model of the G5 ( XT1672 ) the only official software for the XT1675 was released January 1st 2017
Unfortunately Motorola didn't release any software for our model after January like they did with other models

When Motorola releases Oreo officially after installing your stock ROM for the xt1675 I will hopefully get it?

    But I don't see AMZIN mentioned in different versions

    I don't have any Amazon versions on here, I was helping someone helping someone else use a version on a different site

    My computer is down until further notice and I now work half 6 till 5 Monday to Friday so I am sorry that I can not help further and look into this much right now but as soon as my computer is back up and running and I have time I will.

    Hi, I'm trying to unlock bootloader in my Moto G5. I followed the description above. The driver is installed.

    First thing, fastboot doesn't work (picture fastboot1.png)
    I've found different fastboot (picture fastboot2.png). Unfortunately the command "fastboot devices" shows nothing.
    I work on AMD processor.
    What could be wrong?
    Download platform tools (contains fastboot.exe)


    Either

    1 - open cmd at the fastboot.exe location
    2 - manually navigate cmd to the fastboot location
    3 - add the path to fastboot.exe to windows environmental values to be able to run fastboot from anywhere in cmd

    Note - if doing either 1 or 2 from above then your firmware or what ever you want to flash needs to be in the same location as fastboot.exe

    If doing 3 & fastboot is in Windows environmental values then the firmware or what ever you are flashing can be at any location as fastboot will run from anywhere


    Fastboot usb driver

    Restart after installing USB driver
    Use original USB cable or compatible USB cable (change if you have issues)


    Enable USB debugging from the developer options in settings on your device before you begin to unlock the bootloader
