Hey all,

Came from the Nexus 4 forums, just recently picked up a VZW Moto X. I have a Dell Venue 8 Pro with Windows 8.1, and RSD Lite doesn't work on it. I wanted to restore to 4.2.2 and then later after rooting, back to 4.4 stock and RSD Lite wouldn't see my phone, but adb and fastboot would. I made a quick script which will restore your Moto X, after of course, downloading the correct firmware from http://sbf.droid-developers.org/ghost_rcica/list.php. This is tested working on VZW and if there is enough interest, I can make more for the T-Mobile and AT&T versions.

Instructions:

1. Download and extract the kit zip. It includes install.bat (the script), mfastboot (found on a file share site, if someone is due credit for this please let me know and I'll update) and adb. with associated files.

2. Download and extract your Moto X firmware.

3. Drop the files from the kit in the file with all the extracted Moto X firmware files.

4. Ensure your phone is backed up, if applicable.

5. Plug your phone in and make sure the drivers are loaded (install Motorola Device Manager if needed).

6. Open CMD prompt and navigate to folder with your Moto X firmware files and the files from the kit.

7. Type
Quote:

install.bat

and wait for process to complete. Note the system install takes a bit longer than the rest, as it is a big file.

Please feel free to tweak the batch file if you need. Enjoy!

EDIT: This will not work for anything but VZW as of right now as there are some carrier specific commands in there. Anyone need this for a different carrier? I can download the firmware you need it for and make the batch.

This wont work with the Sprint Moto X, right?

Edit: Didnt see the bold text...lol. I know that KitKat is going to be pushed to the Sprint Variant next week so if you could make one then, that'd be great

Does this preserve user data?

I'm pretty positive it doesn't. All the partitions get wiped and flashed to stock.

It's hosted on XDA, I don't know why that would be.

Sure, I am on a slow internet provider right now so I'll try to get it done by tomorrow. Gotta let it download tonight.

Correct, this is a complete wipe and return to stock (or whatever version you download from the site).

Most people will not need this kit. If RSD Lite works on your machine, I would recommend using that as it is widely accepted.

Claro Chile Install added. Just drop the file inside the ZIP into the directory with the rest of the files, and run ClaroChileInstall.bat instead of the regular install.bat.

I'd be happy to have a version for my TMo DevEd phone. No big rush, but it would be great to have this on hand since I know I'll be restoring to stock at some point soon.

Thank you!
