Exclamation Unable to mount \system \data \cache etc. HELP

The problem: Overnight my Moto X (xt1056) went dark. Was 80%+ charged, woke up and dead as a door nail.
The day before I took 4.4.4 OTA, flashed TWRP, rooted, backed up the ROM. All turned out fine.
Now when it boots it gets about 80% of the way through the boot animation and then it goes black and nothing ever happens. So I went into recovery and attempted to flash my backup but it fails. NO!!! It says cannot mount \system. Now I cannot wipe anything and I can't mount anything and I cant flash any ROMs.

I have tried flashing back to stock using some unbricking articles, but they all result the same way.

I think I need to reflash the gpt.bin for 4.4.4, but I can't find one. I am open to any ideas, and let me know if you need any other info.
Thanks XDA community!

How about a standard RSD XML restore?

Android File Transfer SUCKS! Is there a no root solution for Osx? I am resorting to Parallels DeskTop-W7.

I have tried RSD Lite... but with 4.4.2 not 4.4.4
Not sure what you mean by RSD XML...

Did the OTA "take" bringing it to 444? So if you try 442 that would be a downgrade? Right. Try Rsd lite with 444 unmodified. Edit,
But you may have a brick due to the 442 flash.

You can't downgrade!!!! Never attempt to flash a previous version. Best/easiest way to BRICK your device!

He means using RSD Lite. But use the 4.4.4 SBF. Use this one: http://sbf.droid-developers.org/down...ice=0&file=940

Just to clarify, the ROM says VZW but this is Sprint, will it matter?

Yep, there IS NO Sprint XT1060.

All XT1060s are VERIZON. Big deal, and big difference. Your first post said you have an XT1060...........

You are in a tough situation if you are using a Sprint Device. The ONLY 4.4.4 SBF that has been released is for Verizon. You may have a brick for possibly weeks until the Sprint 4.4.4 SBF is released....

I don't think there is a 444 xt1056 XML ? There is a thread in the dev sec.
Edit but there is no firmware link- XML/Rsd file so you are stuck til a release is out.
