The Need to Flash Stock Firmware on Motorola Edge
One common query that would come to your mind is why to manually flash the firmware when the device would be getting the OTA updates. Well, this is quite a valid concern from your end. So here’s the thing. The OEM usually releases the updates in batches. In other words, this is a staged rollout where not everyone gets the update at one go. But if you have got hold of the update package, then you could easily cut this wait time and manually flash the stock firmware right away.
Then if you are among the tech enthusiasts, you might consider going for device modifications. These would include the likes of unlocking bootloader, flashing custom recoveries, or rooting it via Magisk. While on one side all these would end up adding new features to your device. However, on the other hand, a slight mistake would end up your device in a boot loop or soft-brick state. But even then you could bring back your device from dead by flashing the stock firmware onto your Motorola Edge device. And in this guide, we will help you with just that.
