    Suppose I do the Nougat update on my Moto Z Force and don't like it. Can I rollback that update?

    The only way to rollback is re-imaging the phone with the marshmallow image and you will need a computer to download and install it.

    Well, some of the apps that are critical to my business have not been verified to run properly under Nougat. I didn't want to find out the hard way that they won't handle Nougat.

    I updated mine (like an I d i o t) and now want to go back to MM. My reason is MM made a feature(I can't speak about due to site rules) quit working.

    You can't downgrade. I tried flashing Marshmallow and it fails to flash the files.

    Unless there is something different about the Z Force, Moto Droid phones never allow a version downgrade. The bootloader will not allow you to flash a lower version of itself.

    Maybe the bootloader is locked and does not allow to install an image from the computer.

    Honestly that means nothing with a Verizon Droid phone.

    I assume that, if I don't install the Nougat update, I'll still be able to install future security updates and Moto fixes. Correct?

    As far as I know, future security patches will be on the current track as in there won't be security updates for phones still on Marshmallow.

    With Moto phones, that still doesn't matter. (I am shocked that the bootloader is unlock able BTW. Are you sure that this is a Moto Z Force Droid Edition from Verizon? Or do you possibly have an unlocked Moto Z or Z Play (not Force, not Droid)?) Once the bootloader gets updated to a new version, it will not allow a downgrade, unlocked or not, and I am 99.99% sure that the signed partitions that are flashed will only boot with specific bootloader versions.

    Of course that's not true if somebody has developed an M custom ROM that you can flash, but, again, that's only possible with an unlocked bootloader.

    They removed the option to turn off notifications when on a call. Now there is this sweet feature of when actually using the phone as a phone and an email, text, VM or ANY OTHER thing that happens that causes a notification, the sound will now play in the middle of your conversation.

    What a great feature to have.

    On the Moto Z Force Nougat has disabled Screencasting for some unknown reason. Likely because they have their counterpart Chromecast so they can tell you bend over and buy our hardware.
