hi

phone: moto g xt1032 16gb global gsm, converted to gpe 442

problem
i downloaded the 444 ota from MEGA, installed using an old version of philz, then phone bricked (canīt start the OS)

sure, i know how to restore to stock moto g or gpe via ADB FASTBOOT, and off course i did, but the same happens, stuck at google logo, nothing happens, with both roms

i guess the partition got corrupted, or something very wrong happened with the 444 files, corrupted bootloader or something

i wanted to sideload an update using latest philz, but pc does not detect the phone while in recovery, tried to install the driver but nop, canīt be detected in custom recovery

so........help?

BTE starting philz 6.47.7

Try using this version of philz recovery. This is the version I used to update my converted xt1032.

Very similar problem here. I updated to 4.4.4 via official OTA, but I had the glorious idea of restoring it later to a stock image. Now I can only access fastboot and recovery (TWRP in my case). TWRP indicates that my system and data partitions are nonexistent, so my guess is that the OTA changed the partition table. The only solution I can think of is waiting for a 4.4.4 factory image, which will fix the problem since it would have the correct gpt.bin and motoboot.bin

Maybe you guys will know the answer to this:
I'm on 4.4.3 moto firmware right now on my XT1032, but I want to go 4.4.2 GPE. What do you think, will this conclude with a bricked phone or not?

I would advise you to wait for a 4.4.4 GPE image.

That'd be a wise thing to do, but I didn't.
Everything went fine, and I've written all about it here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=666

I made a method to recover your phone for use! Sadly, you will only be able to use custom ROMs (at least until there's a 4.4.4 image)
Check it in my thread
