  35. Guys, you can go ahead with this or wait for the OTA few more days.
    If you updated with this one then you will have problems with your warranty, Future OTA updates and your Playstore.

    Choose wisely.

    Hi Sumit,
    Just Updated to 7.0 Moto g 4 Plus,
    SIM1-4g Data Enable
    SIM2- Showing Grey and enabled 3G, Not allowed to select 2G Or 3G

    Kinldy Help

  40. I am open recovery mode then show no command how to solve the problem. my model no is motog4plus

  41. Hiya. I cant get access to the root of the internal drive as its saying its read only. I’ve formatted my sd card to be part of the internal drive and I can place it there, but it doesn’t pick it up when I enter recovery mode, it just shows the 6.0 version?
    Any thoughts?

    • If you use the latest OTA, then it remains in warranty and also receives the future OTA…don’t sure about the soak test version.

  42. If i update to nougat …then my phone warranty will discard??? Or not…

  43. Muhammad sameer Reply

    Hi sumit

    I have rooted my devices can I still upgrade through ur steps provided

    Plz reply cuz I wanna update

    • No first you have to unroot your device then it works. To unroot flash stock firmware again.

  44. Will I get ota update .as I have installed October security patch file .

  45. i just upgraded to naugat.
    is there any problems thereafter when official update comes

  46. I have an xt1626 and it didn’t work.
    In recovery mode the error appears:
    E: footer is wrong
    E: signature failed

    This doesn’t work in xt1626?

  47. A bit confused it’s stamped US.EN yet in your post you have listed XT1642 which is the AU/EU variant. Will it actually work and the latest OTA file link states it’s not for the models you’ve listed.

  48. Hooyer Dillingham Reply

    What the heck happened to the SIM Card settings section in ‘Settings’? Where did it move to or get hidden with this Android 7 Naugat update? Can’t find it to save my life.

  49. Prashant Rao Reply

    I rooted my moto g4+ in 6.0.1 Marshmellow
    now can i upgrade to Nougat 7.0?
    Without any problem?

    • Only way to upgrade a rooted device is to Flash a stock Marshmallow firmware and them try the update.

  50. I tried updating N 7.1.1 in Moto g4 play, by following the process mentioned above, but it fails with the error “e:signature verification failed e: footer is wrong”.
    Any help is appreciated.
