There are two Developer Edition Moto X's that I'm aware of (at least when looking at Moto's site from the USA). GSM and Verizon/CDMA. The Verizon (XT1060) Dev Edition uses the same rom as the Verizon retail XT1060, and has the typical VZW bloat.

The GSM Dev Edition and T-Mobile USA are the same phone, XT1053, and use the same ROM. GSM DEV/T-Mobile ROM has no carrier bloat.

You can request the ROM directly from Motorola here -> https://motorola-global-portal.custh...ecovery-images But they only have the VZW 4.4, and GSM Dev 4.4 and 4.2.2. No 4.4.2 images yet.

Oh, and in one of your posts you mentioned about flashing the ATT rom? The ATT X is a XT1058. Its not recommended to flash the rom of one model X (XT1058) onto another model X (XT1053).

Can I just restore my first nandroid backup of the stock system that only had superuser installed? Then just unroot and flash stock recovery?

I'm on Verizon and don't plan to see an update soon, but just curious.

Thanks!
If that was the only thing that was changed in the system files then yes you are good to go with your plan, just make sure you have all the apks installed.

Sorry for the late reply.
Yes, i removed all the apps that require root. I did try with fastboot, it worked too.

I have a question sort of related to this. I accepted the OTA on my Tmobile US xt1053 before unlocking my bootloader and flashing twrp. So I am on the newer bootloader and stock 4.4.2 but I am rooted using TWRP. All I want to do is return to stock, so stock recovery and software. Can I use the rogers 4.4.2 recovery and then factory reset? Also can I use fastboot oem lock after I do this to re lock my bootloader?

Locking your bootloader won't make a difference as moto has your imei recorded, I'm not quite sure on how to do it but I do believe you need your specific carriers sbf firmware. The Rogers recovery should be OK to use but I would wait just in case for the T-Mobile 4.4.2 firmware

Thank you for the quick reply, I am returning it to moto for a refund and just wanted to factory reset. Ive read on here they don't care that an unlock code has been generated for returns I just wanted to make it as non obvious as I could beforehand. I didn't want to wait for the sbf files just incase they come outside my 14 day return window is why I am asking since who knows how long that will be.

It's a great phone and if I were rolling in cash I'd definitely keep it, but as a broke college student I dont need 3 phones and this is the only one I can recoup all my money from so it makes the most sense to get rid of.

The recovery didn't change from 4.4 anyways, unroot via supersu/superuser, flash the stock recovery in TWRP and factory reset, then adb and do "fastboot OEM lock" and you should be good to go, unless that command doesn't work on moto...
