Onus is on the user at that point.

Does it? I never saw that going to 4.4. As long as they put a new sbf up all should be fine.

I tried to flash back to the previous stock version, and even tried re-flashing twrp custom recovery so I could go in and do a factory wipe and clear dalvik and cache, and data but nothing worked.

Did you call Motorola?

UPDATE:

I tried again to select the factory option in fastboot and unlike the previous times I had tried, this time seems to have fixed it. It booted up into Android OS. I think I'll try the OTA once again and see if this time is more successful, as if it screws up again I have a repair rma number and a fedex shipping label, but hopefully it does better this time.

ok OTA successful this time.

does anyone know if it's possible to boot the moto-x off a custom recovery using fastboot like we could for the galaxy nexus? I'd like to get root reinstalled but I don't want to mess with the current recovery, which should help I would think in regards to being able to install OTA updates without major issues.

Unfortunately, I don't believe it's possible to fastboot boot recovery. It's how I did everything with my Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7. I was disappointed to find out it isn't possible with the Moto X Dev edition even though I didn't buy one.

has anyone tried it with the google play edition of the moto-g? I'm wondering if there is a way to convert from a regular retail rom over to a GPE rom for the moto-x after google starts selling it. I remember reading about them going to sell a GPE of it. Hopefully the GPE rom would be friendlier than the retail rom

Is there a way to fix this or will I need to send my phone back to motorola for a repair?

I know you have fixed this now, but if you see the android with the red triangle and ! use the key combination pwr & up vol. That gets you into stock recovery and from there you should be able to boot up.
