For all those who are wondering why I wrote “Re-Lock the Bootloader” in the title, we it’s simple, if you are running everything stock, that means the bootloader of your device is already locked, to go custom you need to unlock the Bootloader and thus going back to stock means, you’ll need to Re-Lock it. The reason to go back to Stock can be anything, due to too much Customization, time and again, your device is not working properly the way it was supposed to or the way it was working while you were using it on Stock Firmware. Nonetheless, the reasons are common but the Stock Dump is not easy to find and even difficult to apply.
Moto G is considered an awesome device, why? simply because it has some of the awesome specs and build quality, not much of an high-end device, but still more than enough for a tight budget user.

However, if you are among those who wants to switch back to the Stock Side of your Phone, we can help them in this matter.
