then i re flashed the original ATT 4.4 and at the boot in the screen was writen Partition (boot) Security Version Downgraded

Yeah, once you get 4.4.2 on there you do NOT want to downgrade.

At this point, you can try reading -> http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...rrupt-t2629057 but post #120 implies you need the ATT 4.4.2 SBF to really fix it.

Its an acronym. I'm not sure what each of the letters stand for exactly...

Basically an SBF file is a completely stock system image. You flash it through the RSDlite tool. It will completely revert your phone back to stock. FXZ was also used at one point when referring to such an image.

For the X, the SBF is actually a packed zip file which contains all the parts, and an XML file which tells RSDLite what to flash, in what order, and some stuff. You could also unzip it and use mFastboot to flash the individual parts instead of using RSDLite.

to fix it yourself, you need to wait. Or you could do more harm than good.

A moto service center may fix it or send you a refurbished phone. And if they do, they might not cover it under warranty since you have a non-developer edition that you tried to flash the wrong rom too which put you in this situation. i.e. the warranty terms cover defects in materials and workmanship, not drops, getting wet, or other damage from improper operation or use. (flashing the rom for another model or carrier would be considered improper operation or use)... So it might cost $$$

If this is your only phone, and you need it working now, then you have no choice but to call Moto (if Moto Maker) or ATT (if retail non-customized) to see about "warranty" and see what happens. Otherwise use another phone temporarily and just wait for the ATT 4.4.2 SBF to leak, as you should be able to fix your phone by flashing it.
