Moto X Force Nougat Update: Download OTA Firmware

Moto X Force Nougat update can be manually performed by downloading official NPK25.200-12 OTA firmware and installing it via stock recovery in India.

Moto X Force Nougat update has been widely released for the users and you might have received the OTA notification on your device. The update brings latest Nougat 7.1 version to Moto X Force (XT1580) with lots of performance and stability improvements. I had also covered an article about Moto X Force Nougat update, which was based on an XDA user’s thread.

The full list of release note can be found here (Moto official thread) which brings major changes in productivity, performance, notifications, usability, accessibility, authentication, etc. Moto X Force Nougat update can be done through two methods; either using the System Updater app with the help of stock recovery. I’ll be showing both methods here.

Moto X Force Nougat Update India: Pre-requisites

  • Download the official Nougat firmware for Moto X Force (XT1580) from the below download section.
  • Keep your device charged for at least 50-60%.
  • Make a backup of your important files.
  • If the device was previously rooted, the root access will be lost.
  • Unlocked bootloader is not mandatory.

Moto X Force Nougat Update Guide (Manual Method)

  1. First of all, download Moto X Force Nougat update OTA firmware from the above download section and copy to the device (not inside any folders, keep it in the root directory).
  2. Switch off the device. Then reboot the phone into (stock) recovery mode. For this, press and hold Vol – & Power buttons together followed by Vol + & Power buttons combination.
  3. Choose Apply update from SD card option and load the firmware from the storage.
  4. After successful update, reboot system.

You can alternatively sideload the Nougat firmware on Moto X Force using ADB commands. I suggest you avoid it as it requires a computer access and execution of commands. In case this method produces any errors, you can ask me for including that method as well.

Moto X Force Nougat update has been successfully completed using the official OTA firmware. Device’s Bootloader status remains unchanged even after upgrading the firmware. Got anything bad? Let me know via comments.
