    I bought my unlocked Moto Power 7 about a month ago.

    My phone plan is with T-Mobile $100/1000 Min/year

    I linked the phone to my wifi and found that it updated
    from Ver 9 to 10 without asking for conformation.

    I hate this upgrade. I hate Version 9 but it was better
    than 10.

    I've not determined how to revert to 9. In fact, I'd
    like to revert to version 7.

    Perhaps I could install Liniage but I don't see Moto
    7 Power version xt2041-4 mentioned as a candidate.

    Oh, the upgrade screwed some apps until I did a "cold boot"
    by causing 5 times for the phone to shutdown. Then it seemed
    to work without causing a problem.

    Suggesitions welcome.

    try a factory reset. i'm not familiar with your phone, but most phones will not allow backward flashing of older software updates.....so you might be stuck with what you have. a factory reset might help when you run into bugs that could be associated with either a bad download or a bad install.

    and linegage is a custom rom in which the phone will need to be rooted.

    I don't mind a different OS, but I've not discovered one for this phone.

    Thanks for your reply. I'll keep searching.

    Seems that my Moto Power 7 is actually a Power 8.

    Versions xt2041-1. -3. -4 are all Power 8.

    Why mine came in a box as Power 7 is a mystery.

    I only use this phone for pcassopma; calls and occasional text, and the text app sucks.
    The "swiping" to close an app doesn't always work, and I haven't found
    a text app to work with this OS.
