Motorola’s Moto G5s Plus is now craving for the Android Oreo 8.1 update, which by the way is rolling out as soak test which is good news. However, some developers have already taken the matter into their own hands, by porting the MIUI 9 ROM for the Moto G5Ss Plus. This new MIUI 9.6 ROM is fortunately based on Android Oreo 8.1 so good news for Moto G5s Plus users who are rooted and have an unlocked bootloader.
