Motorola released the kernel source code for the Moto One Power, and Moto One Hyper smartphones last month. Now, the Lenovo-owned smartphone maker has released the kernel source code for Moto G7 Plus as well. The release of these kernel source codes will allow third-party developers to build custom ROMs for Moto G7 Plus. Interested developers can now download the kernel source code from the GitHub repository. The Kernal source code is based on the latest Android 10 OS upgrade.
As the kernel source code has officially been released by Motorola on GitHub, it complies with the legal requirements of the GPLv2 license. Users can now flash generic system images (GSIs) of AOSP (Android Open Source Project) ROMs such as LineageOS, Pixel Experience, and RessurectionRemix, among others.

Custom ROM support for the Motorola Moto G7 Plus will allow the phone to be used with a plethora of Android-based forks. Providing kernel sources to developers also ensure that these custom ROMs are better optimized to make the most of the hardware of the phone. Most of these come with their own set of unique features and interfaces.
