Download Moto G3 2015 Marshmallow Stock Firmware

Compare with Other Manufacturers, Moto OS is always near Stock Android. They can perform well with the same specs that have Custom Skin OS. You continually update your mobile using the Software Update option in settings. But, When you moved to a different region, or You have Rooted mobile, you may not get the updates via OTA. In those situations, you have to flash the firmware using one of the below methods manually. When you have rooted mobile, you should flash Magisk after you installed firmware using TWRP. Or Else, you will lose root access. I mentioned a few methods to do this manually. Try the Internal way first. When you fail to load the OS, you can try the ADB method.

Benefits of Stock Firmware

There are plenty of benefits to using stock firmware. Below I Mention Major two.

  • Security- Yes, you will receive regular security patch updates, directly from your Manufacturer.
  • Hassle-free usage- In Rare cases, if you misuse rooted devices, It may lead to some lag in usage or Random Restarts like that. In those situations, you can recover your mobile by Flashing Stock firmware.

Wrap Up

If you are in Stock firmware, Use the Internal Memory method. It is comfortable and safe; You can update like a Regular OTA Update. But if you were already using Custom OS or Rooted devices, You can try RSD Lite Method or Fastboot. Don’t download any third-party apps; sometimes, it may trigger the updates process. There are a lot of new features available in this Update, try them also. In my opinion, Moto near Stock Android is better to compare with some other Custom Skin OS. So try to use this OS instead of a Custom OS. But the decision is your choice…:)
