[Q] Bricked Moto G From Boost Mobile [HELP]

I got a Moto G from Boost Mobile then i downloaded Blur_Version.175.44.1.falcon_cdma.Boost.en.US to downgrade my Moto G to Kitkat 4.4.2. During the flashing process i got an error message about INVALID SYSTEM IMAGE and then flash finished. Now the Moto G hangs at boot STARTING SERVICES. Then just shuts down on it's own and starts back up. It goes into a reboot loop. Can any of you show me where i can download the correct rom to flash so i can get my phone back up and working again? Any help here on getting the correct image for this phone would be greatly appreciated. Please Help!

Downgrading is not recommended. Did you flash the gpt.bin when you tried to downgrade?

Not exactly sure if this will help but you can get the recovery image from Motorola

Motorola only provides recovery images for the moto x Dev edition. I don't believe a 4.4.4 stock factory image has been released yet. If you have a gsm model there is a EU 4.4.4 flashable zip available.

The thread below is what you need.

To recover a boost mobile to 4.4.4 you'll have to look around, I found it a while ago but don't remember where.

I got it figured out y'all. I found the KitKat 4.4.4 for the Moto G on Boost Mobile. I also found a way to flash my Moto G without unlocking the bootloader.

You don't need an unlocked bootloader to flash Motorola signed firmware
