Linux fastboot issue - SOLVED
That makes two of us. I used ADB and SU to manipulate files in /system/app and everything went right except the fact that as a result my /system/app folder now....
Anyways, the error I was getting :
duchski@duchski-linux-X60 ~ $ fastboot flash system /home/duchski/.android/ROM/system.img
(bootloader) Variable not supported!
target reported max download size of 31457280 bytes
Invalid sparse file format at header magi
Turned out to be caused by wrong fastbook executable, even though I downloaded the correct one for linux, there was another fastboot in /usr/bin revealed by running 'which fasboot' . running the correct fastboot via ./fastboot cleared the issue. I am good and up to speed.
Well, thats what happens when you get older and no longer feel like flashing new ROMs every day
You get rusty.
Thanks everyone. I am moving to Moto X now, my 6th Motorola phone

Have you tried using RSD Lite? You can enter on fastboot, right? If you only have linux, you should be able to use the specific fastboot for Linux and then manual flash every partition on the phone. You know, fastboot flash modem modem.img, fastboot flash recovery recovery.img, etc, etc.
Skeevydude made a thread about how to do it, I just can't search it right now, but you should be fine.
About the phone charging, as far as I know, it doesn't charge when you are on fastboot. I don't know how to help you here, honestly.
Keep us updated.
