Checking e/OS for Moto G5 XT1687 codename: potter

Hi. I wanted to double check that my device is NOT supported.

I have a Moto G5 Plus, model XT1687, codename: potter.

It’s not listed under any of the other Motorola devices listed.

I ask only because I had previously installed e/OS on a Sony Xperia and the was some confusion about the model name. I decided to install e/OS from a similar model Xperia and it totally worked.

So I thought I would double check to see if any of the other downloads were known to work with my device.

Thank you,

The riyanahmed65 sources are for ArrowOS not for LineageOS. Please always look at the branch info.
Nonetheless I did now search again in Github and found something:

Might give a try later to build…

Idk, but maybe this is the “official” repo for Motorola’s published kernel sources?

I find now sources and could build for /e/OS-R. Please provide feedback if ROM works.

I can confirm that both recovery and ROM work for XT1685 version of Moto G5 Plus.

Upon further investigation I found that even though I was able to toggle the OEM Unlocking to ON the device was locked to T-Mobile and they want $26 to release it. I’ll check back after I make the payment.
