Ad removal process, use at your own risk. Reddit link has additional steps and hand holding.

https://forum.xda-developers.com/...g-t3614090
https://www.reddit.com/r/MotoG/co..._displays/

Video and script to make removal of ads even easier: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r...e=youtu.be

Step by Step from the above Reddit. No root access required, super easy:
1. Install USB drivers for your Motorola
2. Download and Install ADB tools
3. Unzip this file to a directory. (right click, extract all, select a directory).
4. Open a cmd prompt from this directory you just extracted to (ctrl+shft+right click, run command prompt here).
5. Enable Developer Options and USB Debugging
6. Find a good USB cable, plug it into your computer and then to your device. When the pop-up appears asking you to authorize the device, allow it.
7. Go Back to that cmd window you opened and type:
adb devices
8. This should return the ID of your device. If not, please go back and retrace your steps.
9. Next Type: adb shell
10. This should give you a new prompt, something to the effect of athene:/ - here type the following:
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.amazon.phoenix
This should return 'Success' at which point Amazon Ads have been removed!

11. While You're at it, you might want uninstall a few more pieces of amazon software: pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.amazon.widgets
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.amazon.clouddrive.photos
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.amazon.kindle
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.amazon.dee.app
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.amazon.drive
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.imdb.mobile
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.goodreads
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.audible.application

Stop reading here, you're done.

This ad removal method for Moto G4 might work, but an update can be pushed to block this method in the future, which is what happened to the Blu R1 HD.

Method for blocking ads is different here. See this thread where people explain how this command works: https://www.reddit.com/r/Android/...ose_pesky/

This does nothing to the system partition, which means no risk as factory reset will reinstall everything and OTAs will still go through because no unlocked bootloader or root is needed. Many people have successfully used this across carriers and OEMs to disable apps that cannot be disabled in the settings (including Samsung Bixby, which is pretty huge given how hard they're working to stop people from remapping the Bixby button on the S8). Signs point to this being a fundamental function of Android OS that is unlikely to be blocked or patched. There are no guarantees, but seems pretty safe.

The Blu phone you mentioned appears to have been rooted and the bootloader unlocked (allowing third party ROMs to install) which was blocked by an update. But anything with Android 5.0 and above should apparently be able to use this command to disable anything in the user partition, including ads.

Furthermore, it was discovered that the update that blocked root/unlocked bootloader could be downgraded, thus giving user full control of the unit (including removing ads again). Proof: https://www.reddit.com/r/IntoBlu/...t_options/

Whoever said this was "misleading" was being ignorant. Nothing is without risk, but if you read the above links, the risk seems quite low, and certainly there's nothing that can't be undone with a factory reset, as the system partition is totally protected and all apps that are disabled will be back on full reset.

Nice! My Prime Day deal dreams are coming true. I was hoping for the ad-free version, but this is too good of a deal to pass up. Here is some info if anyone is looking to remove the ads:

Are there discounted Amazon gift cards? I keep seeing people post the link to discounted Amazon gift cards to make the deal sweeter, but when I click the link, I don't see any discounts so not sure what that's about.

I believe it refers to upcoming gift card deals for various stores that will start in a few hours. Don't think they will have any deals on Amazon gift cards.

It isn't to bad at all. Doesn't interfere with performance, battery, or user experience much at all. Just double tap the home finger print button and you won't even have to see the lock screen.
