This Motorola Moto G8 Play XT2016-2 official firmware flash file (stock ROM) can help you easily un-brick or restore your device to its default or factory state. If you have previously rooted or modified the system (or other) partition of the phone in any way, flashing this stock ROM will overwrite all existing modified system files to replace them with factory software.
If you have important data on the phone (like contacts, messages, app data, etc.), please back them up because you could lose data after flashing. You should also charge the phone to at least 30% so that the flashing process will not be interrupted by low battery. Interrupting the firmware installation means bricking your phone.
Download the firmware file from the link below and follow the recommended flashing instructions immediately after the download options. Please report any broken links discovered.
