Moto G received the OTA update of Android 5.0 Lollipop and also the Official Images, and those who are not familiar with the flashing methods of Factory Images or have made any sort of mistake while flashing the OTA update, are now stuck with the device which is Soft-bricked. It means that the device you own is now running a corrupted Firmware, or your device is not running any Firmware at all. In such cases, most of the users think that their device is now dead and the only solution is to give it back to the Officials or any repairing center. But if you try to turn on your device and you see a faint light on the screen, then there is hope and we can help you in this matter.
However, if the device is not showing a even little sign of life at all, that means your device is now Hard Bricked and there is no hope for it. Still, we recommend you to try to fix the device. Now if you have a Moto G which is bricked on Android 5.0 Lollipop or any other version, above than Android 4.4.4 Kit-Kat, don’t try to Restore the Back-up of any previous version after flashing this. It will brick your device again. However, when you can once again try to update it, that will work.
