The Does and Does Not of this Method
The Does The Does Not
With the correct Moto G Turbo Loader.img file, you will be able to access your Moto G Turbo recovery partition again. The Moto G Turbo Loader.img file ONLY boots your device to bootloader / recovery mode and not the OS.
This method aid your Moto G Turbo unbrick solutions. It's not the do-it-all. This Moto G Turbo Loader.img file will not boot your device to OS. You need full firmware to do that.
