Default [Q] flashing 4.4.4

I am on an unlocked rooted xt 1080m. I was recented having issues with phone and restored to an old backup image using twrp. Unfortunately, this was 4.4 ( I had been on 4.4.4). I can't get the OTA to work even after flashing stock recovery. I have downloaded the fxz file. My question is -- Can I just flash the system.img using mfastboot or do I have to use the house of moto method? I am not a complete idiot but I get confused with some of the house of moto's steps. Sorry to be a bother

You can use RSD Lite (which will erase everything and leave you 100% factory stock), or the house of Moto Methods.

You can NOT flash just system.img. You need the boot.img, as well.

Might be able to fastboot flash JUST system and boot....if it were me, I'd RSD Lite back to full stock.

I successfully CRACKED the SIM-LOCK on the Sprint XT1056 Moto X. Read about it HERE
