Dear All,

Please help me regarding fastboot. When I press 3 keys (vol-up, vol-down and power key) while phone is off. I see the black and white screen written boot modes. From there when I select AP Fastbood device is restart with red Motorola logo and end up on home screen.. I have tried several times to turn off the device and repeat this process but no issue still there..

Moreover, if I did not select any options from boot modes than device automatically rebooted after 3 or 4 seconds..

Please help me out.. I want to unlock the boot loader root and install custom ROM..

Currently Model Number is XT925 and device is completely stock.. never rooted before...

thanks and regards,

After you use the volume down key to highlight "Fastboot", do you then press the volume up key to select it? If you just sit there and wait it will reboot normally. You must press the volume up key after you've highlighted the menu option.

try this,
-install adb on your pc
-plug in phone when powered up
- open a command prompt in your adb dir
- type in: adb devices then enter. it should show your phone in the prompt. also check your phone, there may be a popup to acknowledge.
- rerun adb devices until it shows your phone properly or you cant proceed
-now type in: adb reboot bootloader

if it works, the phone should reboot to the fastboot screen.
if it doesnt stick in fastboot, im sorry but i dont know what else to tell you to try.

Thankyou so much for the reply, i followed your instructions and finally get in fastboot mode and unlocked the boot loader. However, is there any way from which I can go into recovery.. because through hardware way I am unable to go in recovery. Thanks

EDIT: I have tried entering command adb reboot recovery, then phone was rebooted and there was green android on screen with chest open.. thats it... i have waited for few minutes and rebooted the device mannually.

That's the entry to stock recovery. You have to push a combination of buttons from there to get into recovery. I forget the button combination, it has been posted many times, try searching or wait for someone else to jump in with the answer.

Not sure where to post this question been reading so many post my eyes are tired......

- XT926 upgraded to kitkat 183.46 last week via flash in RSD from JB 4.1.2
- Root went well DONE (Towel root .apk)
- Unlock went well DONE (Motopocalypse .apk) yes fastboot shows the #3
- Flashed TWRP 2.7.1 DONE (did it using the adb in motopocolypse)
- Backed up my current stock ROM in TWRP seemed to go well the program confirmed the backup was successful...So I thought
- Got confident and wanted to try flashing CM11 (Kitkat version)
- After flashing CM11 my phone got stuck at boot like many others have.... no problem I backed up my stock ROM in TWRP.....So I thought
- Went to restore my stock ROM using TWRP and yup you guessed it like many others the restore failed half way through

Not a big deal starting fresh can be a good thing BUT I really need my old text messages and all I have is a USB backup of the phone (Internal/SDcard) on my PC and of course the TWRP back-up on the SDcard that won’t restore ...... Is there any way to get these messages back to my phone????

Not sure how to help you with your immediate problem at hand, but going forward, I definitely recommend the sms backup + from the Google Play Store. Nice thing with that app is, you can link it to your gmail account, and all your text messages are backed up to your gmail.
