Unbrick Moto G100/Edge S: Flash Firmware via Fastboot Commands

In this guide, we will show you the steps to unbrick your Motorola Moto G100/Edge S by flashing the stock firmware via Fastboot Commands. Both these devices from Motorola are quite active players in custom development. As soon as you unlock the device’s bootloader, you will be in a position to install custom/GSI ROMs, install a custom recovery, or gain administrative level access by rooting your device via Magisk.

This in turn will allow you to welcome a plethora of mods abode, including the likes of Magisk Modules, Xposed Framework, and Substratum Themes. However, this is just one side of the coin. Carrying out these tweaks might prove to be a risky bet as well. If not done correctly, then your device might end up in a bootloop or soft-bricked state. Fortunately, you could easily unbrick your Motorola Moto G100/Edge S by flashing the stock firmware via Fastboot Commands. And in this guide, we will show you how to do just that. Follow along.

Do note that the below process requires an unlocked bootloader. If your device is in a bricked state, then the bootloader might already be unlocked. However, if your device is in a perfectly working condition, then make sure to unlock the bootloader beforehand.

STEP 1: Install Android SDK

First and foremost, you will have to install the Android SDK Platform Tools on your PC. This is the official ADB and Fastboot binary provided by Google and is the only recommended one. So download it and then extract it to any convenient location on your PC. Doing so will give you the platform-tools folder, which will be used throughout this guide.

STEP 3: Boot Bricked Motorola Moto G100/Edge S to Fastboot Mode

In most cases, a soft-bricked or boot-looped device might already be in the Fastboot Mode. However, if you are stuck in a bootloop, then long-press the Power key to turn it off. Then press and hold the Power and Volume Down keys (or Power and Volume Up) together to boot your device to Fastboot Mode.
