Default [Q] Error updating firmware

Today i downgraded my moto x to 4.2.2 because i had rooted it and wanted to return it to stock and the ROM for my country wasnt abailable on kit kat, now i tried to upload it again to kit kat and the update sent me to fastboot where i got an error message which said the following

"downgraded security version update gpt_main version failed
Failed to hab check for gpt_backup: 0x35
CId Read Failure
Invalid CID status 0x69
CustomerID error. Contact Dealer: 0xdead
No SP partition found"

Anybody knows what this means? any help is apreciated!

Another thing is that my bootloader shows up like locked which is weird because its actually unlocked

This sounds like the infamous downgrade brick?

I downgraded with RSD erasing the "gpt" and "motoboot" lines from the default_flash so i could do it, later on i downloaded de 4.4.2 directly from the phone and once it finished downloading it started updating and sent me directly to fastboot showing this error.

the firmware that i downloaded to do the downgrade was this "Blur_Version.139.12.35.ghost_row.Personal.en. AR"

The bootloader is unlocked and showing locked .

unfourtunatly i couldnt find a 4.4 firmware for my carrier so i wasnt able to find a kit kat firmware to flash and see if i could get it running, i tried with another firmware from the region where i live and flashed it but couldnt make it work with RSD nor fastboot.

Yup, been many debates on here about whether its safe to downgrade from 4.4.2 or not.....and I've read enough here now that I simply advise not to. Period. Unless you can afford a replacement easily....in case bad things happen.

Many disagree, but I stand by this advice.

Where are you at currently?? You can beat up or not? Have you tried reflashing 4.4.2? Or what have you tried?

Anyway, before doing anything else...I suggest reading the thread about how to unbrick. I don't know the link off hand....but it may help.

Good luck. 😊

Thanks to everyone for all the help given, luckily because of the bootloader showing as "LOCKED" and the horrible tecnical service( i hope thats how its written) here in Argentina i was able to make my moto x pass with the warranty and hopefully recieve a new moto x. Again thanks for all the support.
