Motorola releases Android 10 kernel code for the Moto G7

Motorola releases Android 10 kernel code for the Moto G7

Although Motorola has been slow to roll out Android 10 to most of its devices globally, the company is at least keeping developers happy with steady kernel source releases. Over the past few weeks, Motorola has released updated source code packages for most of its phones, accelerating the creation of custom ROMs and recovery partitions.

Motorola has started bringing Android 11 to the Moto G8 and Moto G8 Power

Motorola has started bringing Android 11 to the Moto G8 and Moto G8 Power

Motorola's reputation for software updates isn't exactly sterling, with most of its devices only receiving two software updates over the course of their lifespan. Last December, Motorola announced 21 of its phones would be receiving updates to Android 11, though in the three months since, we've only heard about a single update starting to arrive. You now can mark two more devices off that list, as Android 11 updates start heading out for both the Moto G8 and Moto G8 Power.

Motorola releases Android 10 kernel source for the Edge, One Fusion+, and G7 Power

Motorola releases Android 10 kernel source for the Edge, One Fusion+, and G7 Power

Customizability has always been a key component of Android, with third-party developers being able to modify and create their own tweaked builds of the software. When companies release the kernel source for their devices, it makes this process much easier. Motorola may not have the best reputation when it comes to software updates, but it's usually pretty good about releasing this low-level code, and it's doing so now with the Motorola One Fusion+, Motorola Edge, and Moto G7 Power Android 10 kernel sources.

Motorola thinks it's 2019, rolls out Android 10 update for Moto One Macro

Motorola thinks it's 2019, rolls out Android 10 update for Moto One Macro

You'd think that Motorola, with its comparatively light Android skin, would be quicker at delivering software updates, right? Well, you couldn't be more wrong. If its flagship phone, the Edge+, ranks poorly on our update tracker, it's best not to expect too much from its budget devices. However, the company has managed to fall short of even the lowest expectation by only just releasing Android 10 for the Moto One Macro in 2021.

Motorola releases Android 10 kernel source for the Edge+

Motorola returned to the flagship smartphone market earlier this year with the Motorola Edge+.

Choosing the most influential Android devices of the last decade

Choosing the most influential Android devices of the last decade

We've clearly got a little bias on the subject, but Android has a long and storied history filled with its own triumphs and pitfalls. It's been well over a decade now since that first HTC G1 landed, the inaugural Android smartphone, and things have changed drastically since then. Being "first" might make you think the G1 was the most influential Android phone — but was it, really?

Motorola begins rolling out Android 10 to Moto G7 Power

Motorola begins rolling out Android 10 to Moto G7 Power

Motorola is gradually getting back on track after a phase of subpar software support. Don’t get me wrong, the releases still aren’t timely, but at least they’re coming. The 2019 G series started its Android 10 journey with the G7 Plus, and the standard G7 joined in last month. And now, the latest Android version is reaching a few G7 Power users in Brazil, even before Motorola could make an official announcement.
