I need someone to test ( not just the normal it boots up test because I already know it boots up and everything works )
My bootloader already says status: modified and right now I have an IMEI problem which is preventing me from making and receiving calls/texts, I won't upload my versions until I know they aren't going to trip the bootloader status or cause the same call/text problems I have for people who flash it
which is why i'm looking for a tester who doesn't care if their bootloader changes from official to modified and doesn't care if they lose ability to call and text.

with your fastboot Issue, could you have a look on my instructions in my [fastboot] thread and tell me if you get fastboot to recognize your phone, i'm not asking you to flash anything, just asking if you could use those instructions and see if fastboot picks up your Moto G5, ( i'm curious as to why your having so much trouble as I am also on windows 10 ) also currently what rom are you using on your Moto G5?

Currently moving from pixel experience which is the most stable Oreo as in camera and sd card able to cut and paste, to Atomic Oreo, CRdroid 8. And colt is 7.1.2 which is faultless. And I have stock rooted and debloated backed up for stock camera for days out with the family. Yes I'll check your instructions and test fastboot. Although I might have answer for you now as I was forced to side load a command yesterday because twrp would only reboot via bootloader, it would not boot system, just kept returning to recovery so I found instructions on XDA how to plug into pc and copy and past command whilst in twrp. Works straight away. It was a command that wipe misc partition, problem came due to sd card corrupted during twrp flash. Is command prompt? Powershell and fastboot the same thing?

Please don't go back to any Android 7 rom from Android 8
you will lose your IMEI and have the same call/text issues I have ( possibly )

fastboot runs inside command prompt

    What's the point of this? Does it do something different?

    TWRP is a portable way
    some people are scared of using fastboot + this way they can keep twrp without the firmware not liking it + the TWRP installation is much faster but this method is mainly for people who want to keep twrp without needing to modify anything, are scared of fastboot or want to do a quick install

    Sometimes people don't want to do all the steps for going back to stock so having a flashable zip it's a bit faster and easier.
    @Livi-Tech when I did flashable stock people had issues getting zip booted so I disabled dm verity and force encrypt from kernel but you can attach this to the main post so people don't run into the same issues.
