My Moto G (1st gen) has been acting weird, closing apps before they finish loading, and optimizing apps repeatedly when rebooted. Now, it’s stopped loading android at all. After the Moto boot logo spins it goes to a black screen and feels warm after sitting for a long time. It’s backlight is on, but it’s unresponsive.
I want to do a hard wipe back to factory but I have data to retrieve, photos mainly. I was hoping I could use ADB to push an android system update and hopefully un-brick my phone but I don’t know where to get that file safely…can it be downloaded?
Can anyone help me figure out how I can fix my phone? I’ve tried clearing the cache in recovery, and tried accessing the files in ADB, but the connection is closed because my device isn’t rooted.
ANY help is greatly appreciated. I need this phone back on ASAP.
