Unfortunately, it appears he is from Brazil, and English, or USA English, is not his primary language, so its difficult to find out what steps were taking to help determine why the phone bricked.

i.e. Which carrier ROM was on the phone prior to flashing, and exactly which XT1053 rom was used (for example if the phone was on a 4.4.3 carrier rom, and a 4.4.2 or lower XT1053 rom was flashed, "downgrading" could be the issue rather than just the act of flashing an XT1053 rom)? Was mfastboot used or RSDLite (RSDLite verifies check sums before flashing, where as mFastboot does not, so if mFastboot was used and the download was corrupted, a bad file could have been flashed)? Was the flash process interrupted while running? etc...

The Language barrier is also going to hinder any efforts to try and help bernardomendez181 recover the phone.

I think he is from south america, I'm from that region as well and I'm having issues understanding what he is trying to say... I have an idea, he bricked his phone due to flashing T-Mobile firm on his phone...

Maybe he bricked his phone trying to flash a wrong version. 4.4.2 on 4.4.3 (stock) I think. I'm from mexico so I have a bad English too lol

Hey! Trata de escribirlo en español. Yo puedo ayudarte, solo explica bien como llegaste a hacer un "brick" a tu teléfono. Cuales fueron los pasos que seguiste? Tu teléfono aun enciende? Aunque sea en modo fastboot. Saludos!
