Motorola Moto G7 Android 10 update close as kernel source goes live; Moto G Power kernel source code goes live
Although the Android 10 update for the Moto G7 Plus is in a full swing and has been consistently extended to a number of regions, the users of the Moto G7, are still waiting for the update to arrive on their handsets.
Back in February, we came up with a report where a tweet by Motorola Support stated that the Android 10 update for the Moto G7 would arrive sometime this year.
However, the following month as per a tweet, but this time by Motorola France, claimed that the Android 10 update will be landing on the Moto G7 units in Q2 of 2020.
Moreover, it was not clear whether the tweet was regarding the Moto G7 units in France only or it is meant for the global users as well.
And recently, the device has picked up the February 2020 security patchset, creating a bit of confusion regarding when the Android 10 will be delivered.
Although there is no official date as to when the Android 10 update might arrive on the handset, we have a rough idea that the software will be rolling out soon.
Going by the latest developments, the Android 10 kernel source code for the Moto G7 has been published by Motorola on GitHub, giving us a clear hint that the update is imminent.
This is also beneficial for the developers as it gives the license to them in order to develop custom ROMs and mods for the units. As the LineageOS 17.1 based on Android 10 is already available for the Moto G7 Power, it seems likely that soon this custom ROM would be made available for the Moto G7 as well.
Another, Motorola smartphone’s kernel source code has gone live. Notably, Moto G Power already comes with Android 10 out of the box and this source code will give a free hand to the developers for building custom ROMs and more for the units.
The source code can be found on GitHub for the Moto G Power.
