Both ROMs are currently very stable and I've used them for multiple hours with minimal or no issues. I may port Bliss or some other ROMs later.

Flashing

  1. Unlock bootloader

You can unlock your bootloader at Motorola's website.

  1. Boot into fastbootd

Reboot your device into the bootloader by holding power + volume down. Once it's detected, reboot it into fastbootd mode.

fastboot devices
fastboot reboot fastboot

If this fails, it's likely you flashed TWRP or replaced your recovery partition, if so, you can download the latest stock firmware for your device from Lolinet. Flash the recovery.img like so.

fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

Once flashed, boot into fastbootd.

  1. Flash images

Download and extract the desired zip above. Change to the directory it's extracted to and flash the images to the device as so. Once done, we wipe the phone's userdata partition.

fastboot set_active a
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash system system.img
fastboot flash product product.img
fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
fastboot -w
  1. Flash Magisk & GApps (optional)

Pixel Experience has GApps built in.

If at this stage, you may want to flash Magisk for root, or GApps to access the Play Store. To do so, download TWRP and temporarily boot your device with it. Do not flash it to the recovery partition, as you will lose fastbootd.

fastboot boot twrp-3.4.0-0-rav-test6.img

Once TWRP is booted, push the ZIPs to /sdcard.

adb push Magisk-v20.4.zip /sdcard
adb push open_gapps-arm64-10.0-pico-20200912.zip /sdcard

After that, proceed to flash them as you usually would in TWRP.

  1. Reboot device into LineageOS
fastboot reboot
  1. Enable Rav overlay (Moto G8/G Fast only)

Enable USB debugging in developer options first. This is needed to have the notch behave properly. This will be fixed in a future update.

adb shell cmd overlay enable org.omnirom.overlay.moto.rav

Working

Tested on a Moto G Fast from Amazon US.
