Exclamation Recovery Bootloop (XT1053- Unlocked Bootloader)

Hey everyone,

Got myself into an interesting situation here. I have the GSM Unlocked Moto X (XT1053) and I'm using it on T-Mobile USA.

I have unlocked the bootloader, installed TWRP (twrp-2.6.3.1-ghost-4.4), SuperSU, Xposed all that jazz. Phone ran wonderfully until I saw the 4.4.2 update zip.

Downloaded the zip, put the phone into fastboot and attempted to flash the stock recovery. I had some trouble finding it and ended up using the one I found here. After doing this the phone started to bootloop, showing the ugly white "WARNING: BOOTLOADER UNLOCKED" screen and then nothing then looped. I put the phone back into fastboot and reflashed TWRP.

Now the phone just bootloops into TWRP. To attempt to remedy this I fixed permissions, wiped cache/Dalvik but to no effect. I can actually successfully boot into Android if I go into fastboot and select the "Factory" option in the menu, however I seem to have lost my service.

So looks like I broke a pretty big rule, don't flash until you know exactly what it was you had- but I got impatient and greedy and now I'm paying the price .

How can I repair the damage I've done? I don't mind losing data (currently making a backup in Android).

thanks for the replies,

using the toolkit i have more or less fixed everything. however, my stock recovery is borked- it shows no options, just the android recovery background. i am currently downloading the entire firmware here and plan to extract the stock recovery.img to flash with fastboot.

hopefully this will trigger the ota and everything will be as usual from there on.

you can't trigger the OTA even if you are root and have a custom recovery you will still get the OTA you just wont be able to install it.

Thanks for the video, you were correct, my recovery is working as intended. To actually activate the options in the stock recovery you need to hold the Volume up button and press the Power button.

4.4.2 sideloaded successfully, nothing noteworthy for my personal use- wasn't there mention of the Google dialer in a Canadian update release notes?

I am note sure I usually just use the search feature or google now when looking I have a Nexus 5 I rarely use the dialer but it is nice to have seems like it would be available
