Guys, I really need help, just got my phone today and decided to root it (stupid move), I unlocked the boot loader using Motorola's online unlocker thing, got it done, flashed a custom file called (ghost-boot-new) and the phone booted fine with SuperSU and everything, but then I discovered that my wifi doesn't work anymore, try setting the toggle to on it flips back to off and the screen says "Turning Wi-Fi on.." and nothing happens.

Now I can't seem to understand how to recover back, I read you can relock your bootloader but I don't know where to find my stock image, the phone is Rogers Canada I think, 139.12.36.ghost_row.rci.en.ca is my system image.

If you can shed any light on what I can do, please help!

rooting isn't a stupid move.

Just flash your fw version (139.12.36) http://sbf.droid-developers.org/phone.php?device=0

Then... Flash twrp 2.6.3.1 recovery and chose install superSU/root option on it.

Twrp 2.6.3.1 : http://goo.im/devs/Hashcode/motox/un...-ghost-4.4.img (this work on 4.2 & 4.4)

All process takes around 10 minutes

Only thing I'd change from the above is use cmw on 4.2.2.

I have the same phone and that twrp version gave me bootloops if I restored a nandroid. And I couldn't install the other twrp. Cmw works great.

Just like to warn people.....the twrp restore bootloop problem led me to having to use rsd to restore. Pain in the behind. Lol

Are you guys using the proper TWRP version for the android version you're running? I'm using 2.6.3.1 and have no issues restoring backups of 4.4

Funny you say that. Nope....the 4.2.2 twrp failed the install...after many attempts. And the 4.4 one installs and works fine. But trying to do a restore boot loops you.

So I installed cwm and live with it cause it works great. Might try philz tho.

You're never bricked (well, maybe 99%of the time) with an unlocked bootloader.
