Default [RECOVERY UNLOCKED] TWRP 2.6.3.1 for Android 4.4 [2013-11-19]

This is an updated build of TWRP 2.6.3.1 for the Moto X to be used w/ an UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER.

CHANGES:
- Full support for Motorola's f2fs changes in android 4.4. (This requires a new patch to TWRP which will be on review shortly)
- Backlight fixed

If you're on the previous TWRP 2.6.3 build and using the Motorola 4.4 update, it's highly recommended that you upgrade your TWRP as there are issues w/ filesystem corruption on the /userdata partition.

TO INSTALL:
Download twrp-2.6.3.1-ghost-4.4.img

Then go into bootloader mode and use the following fastboot command
(the command below uses the Moto version of fastboot. Its named mfastboot or moto-fastboot)

Code:
mfastboot flash recovery twrp-2.6.3.1-ghost-4.4.img
I tested this on the SuperSU.zip w/o issue (previously it was causing reboots, and general ickyness).

Let me know how it works for you.

Major thanks for this! Quick question, is this "Motorola fastboot binary" the same thing as the mfastboot file that's been posted numerous times on these forums that also allows us to flash the system.img without the file size too big error?

I know this is probably a stupid question, but what do we do with the mfastboot binary? Where do I put it? And is it something I need to flash? Thanks in advance!

So after flashing this and getting TWRP back will this also root my device?

Nevermind this post, I figured it out by doing a little more reading. Thanks so much Hashcode for getting this up and running so quickly!
I am now on 4.4, unlocked bl, recovery and rooted, thanks again for making an old man happy! LOL

Yes you should, when you go into TWRP the first time, and the go to reboot it will ask you if you want to root. I just did it about 5 mins ago and it worked like a charm!
