Ever since its comeback three years ago, Motorola has been doing all the good stuff and one of that is the timely software update. A couple of days ago, we received a news that Motorola is testing the latest Android Nougat update in Brazil.
However, yesterday, the company announced that they are starting the update roll out in India. The update will be rolled out incrementally, but most of the users want to install the update right away. Here's a simple guide on how to manually install Android 7.0 Nougat update on Moto G Plus (4th Gen).
Step 1: Download the Update Package
To manually update your Moto G Plus (4th Gen) to Android N, you need first download the update package. To simplify your work, we are giving the update package link below this article.
Step 2: Transfer the Download Package to Your Phone
Now, you need to transfer the downloaded file to your phone. If you're downloading the file on your phone itself, then make sure you are placing the file in your internal storage.
Step 3: Boot into Recovery Mode
In this step, you need to boot into your device's recovery mode, which can be done by powering off the device and pressing the volume down and power button at the same time. Now, select the recovery mode manually by pressing the volume down button twice.
Step 4: Follow this If You See an Android Bot Logo

Step 5: Flash the Downloaded File

Wait for the file to completely flash and do not try to reboot your smartphone in the mean time. When the file finished flashing, you can reboot the phone. The first boot may take much longer time than expected. Wait for the device to completely boot.
