Default [Q] please help possible full brick

Hopefully someone is able to help...

I had my tmo moto x unlocked with twrp and root and I tried a factory reset through the twrp recovery and it erased all the software. It booted to the setup screen where I proceeded to log in with Google but it didn't work I think and when it got the home screen it just showed a loading circle and that's it and stupid me I didn't make a backup before

I've tried using the tool in the android development thread to flash back to stock but now my phone doesn't even boot at all I can get to the bootloadwr and I can successfully flash files through the Motorola tool by removing the proper line in the XML file but my phone still don't boot

It just flashes the little android laying down and says error every 5 seconds I don't know what to do anymore I've searched all over and no matter what I can't get the phone to boot

Thanks for the help if any

1. With an unlocked bootloader, you're not fully bricked if you can get to the bootloader.
2. Download the SBF file for your variant here http://sbf.droid-developers.org/phone.php?device=0. If you're already on the 4.4.2 bootloader, download only the 4.4.2 SBF file.
3. Learn how to use fastboot/mfastboot and adb. Follow the steps in the "return to stock" section here http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...uides-t2603358.
4. Extract the SBF file, boot into the bootloader, type what's in the "return to stock" section verbatim. Skip the fastboot oem lock step though and don't copy/paste.
5. Stop using toolboxes and scripts until you understand how fastboot and adb work. They'll save your ass each and every time.

thank you so much for the help but for some reason when i flash the files to my device they run the process perfectly fine but when the phone boots its still doing the same thing where it just flashes the android on his back for like a second every five seconds or so. I did the 4.4.2 update first then i tried 4.2.2 just to give it a shot but i dont think that flashed right since its says an error about downgrading the security in the bootloader

please if there are any other suggestions im open ears ive searched everywhere and tried everything but i still cant get the phone to actually boot up at all

thanks for the help

once you've upgraded to 4.4.2, you can't go back to 4.2.2.
as mentioned, download the 4.4.2 fastboot files and flash each partition.
make sure to wipe data and cache once all partitions are flashed.
here are some more notes regarding flashing:
