Default Problems with VZW Developer Edition Rooting

Please bare with me, I am probably a "C" student in the knowledge of this stuff. I've successfully rooted and rom'd the Galaxy Nexus many times but I'm having trouble with the new Moto X.

I unlocked without issue

Tried to follow the TWRP instructions (which clearly assume some existing knowledge). Not quiet sure what happens with Mfastboot but I got that from a download.

The TWRP flash failed. Can't remember the exact message but I think it was a binary size error.

Now the phone will not boot at all, it just goes back to the bootloader.

I am currently running the repair from the Motorola Device Manager and then I'll have to start again.

So what might be wrong ?

The img file should not be 7 KB. It's around 9 MB. Make sure that you have left clicked the link for the file from the other thread and go to the goo.im page. Then download from there. If you try to right-click the link and "save as", you'll get that 7 KB file.

This.

Make sure your bootloader is unlocked and that you have the 4.4 compatible twrp file downloaded (check md5). Sounds like you've got the bootloader part done but do not have the recovery file rather you've saved the link.

There he has the file you'll need. It should be about 9.62 MB in size. Be sure to compare the MD5 with the one on goo.im: cb7808078a6746dc87e6eaeb4f145dc0

Yes, file size was wrong and it worked after I redownloaded it.

Thanks.
