[Nougat OTA] Download Moto G4, G4 Plus & G4 Play Firmware

Update [January 09, 2017]: Moto G4 and G4 Plus Nougat firmware now available for download. The firmware comes with build NPJ25.93-11 and is applicable to XT-1624 and XT-1643 Moto G4 models.

Update [December 30, 2016]: Moto G4 Plus Android 7.0 Nougat OTA is now available for download. The update belongs to model no. XT1644 particularly, and we have no idea whether it will work on other Moto G4 Plus devices too — but it definitely won’t work on Moto G4 and Moto G4 Play sets.

Original article: Find the stock ROMs or firmware for Motorola Moto G4, Moto G4 Plus and Moto G4 Play here. While we’re trying out best to cover as many firmwares as possible, not all firmwares from all regions are available.

Hence, it’s very much possible that the firmware you are looking for may not be available. You have to download the firmware as per model no. of your device, and also matching the carrier if applicable. But matching the model no. is a must.

If the latest firmware is not available, but a previous one is available whose Android version is same (like, Marshmallow 6.0.x), then download the old firmware and then look for the OTA update to get to newest update.

How to Install Moto G4 Firmware

Well, there are two ways to install a firmware on Motorola devices. One uses a software called RSDLite, and other one uses command line, wherein you input the commands manually to install each component of the firmware on device’s partition manually.

For the RSDLite method, look at the guide available at this page. While, for the command line method (works better than RSDLite method), check out this page.
