Install Stock Android 8.1 Oreo Firmware on Moto Z3 Play
If you own the Moto Z3 Play device and want to install Stock Firmware on it, then I can tell you one thing: you are the right place. I don’t know what brought you here in the first place, but if you are dealing with problems like screen freezing, unresponsive touch, camera fails, boot loops, a bricked device or a buggy new update version, you can choose to download the stock firmware of your Moto Z3 Play and this will definitely make things better.
Here you can find the download link for the Android 8.1 Oreo firmware for Moto Z3 Play with build number OPW28.70-22, therefore the procedure can only be applied on Motorola Moto Z3 Play XT1929-4.
I wanted to rule out any potential confusion from the start about that, just as I want to be clear that by flashing Stock ROM, you can solve various software problems, not only the ones mention above. Some might just want to revert back to stock to gain their warranty and it’s fine. One case or another, here’s what you have to do:
- This process here described will completely wipe your device, so you should better hurry up and back up any data that you might need to use;
- Another important preparatory step is to set up ADB and Fastboot on your PC, just as you have to install the USB drivers for your device;
- Also enable USB Debugging in your phone from the Developer options;
- Even more, before jumping to the process, please make sure you have a good amount of battery juice, with at least 70% charge. If not, you should better charge your phone right now.
The guide is simple and easy! All you have to do is to follow the procedure here detailed, but you are the only one responsible for anything that happens to your Motorola handset – I must warn you about that from the start. If you brick the device, I am not responsible, so do it at your own risk.
Install Stock Android 8.1 Oreo Firmware on Moto Z3 Play:
- Download Moto Z3 Play Firmware;
- Connect your phone to the PC via the original USB cable;
- Look for the Minimal ADB and Fastboot folder. Extract the stock firmware to the newly-created Minimal ADB and Fastboot folder. This will be your working directory for the flashing process;
- Then, you must turn off your device;
- Boot it into bootloader by pressing the Volume down and Power buttons at the same time. You will see your phone boot into a new interface;
- Open a command prompt window in the working directory (Minimal ADB and Fastboot folder) by double-clicking on cmd-here.exe;
- Now, you have to enter these commands in the opened command prompt window to start the flashing procedure:
