Hi guys!

i have a moto x with bt unlocked. i've updated my moto x to 4.4.4 few weeks ago when i received the OTA.

i'd like to flash to stock rom back with rsd lite to have a complete factory reset, but the 4.4.4 stock rom german version isn't already available.. so can i flash the original firmware my moto had before the OTA (german retail 4.4.2) with rsd lite and then update it again to 4.4.4?

i'm not sure i can flash 4.4.2 over a 4.4.4...

thanks a lot!

Since you took the 4.4.4 OTA if you try to downgrade you will BRICK! There are warnings all over this forum.

If you factory reset does it uninstall the OTA?

No. It just wipes the data.

Hello. You have the Moto X XT1052? If you have the Moto X XT1052 with the bootloader unlock you can downgrade from 4.4.4 to 4.4.2. Download the firmware 4.4.4 Verizon and extract the files motoboot.img and gpt.bin and copy them to the firmware 4.4.2 Retail.en.DE and flesh with RSDLite. At the end you will have the Moto X with firmware 4.4.2 Retail.en.DE

You risk a brick when the next OTA is taken.
Or sooner.

My Moto X has no brick to move from 4.4.4 to 4.4.2 and then upgrade to 4.4.4 via OTA file.

I do not doubt you, but please do not encourage others to risk a brick, when a newer ota comes, for what is of little gain.

You are not given a forum where freedom of speech. You have tried as I did? I tried and it works. Just because I did the downgrade and not an important person of XDA does not mean it does not work. I do not care what you think the guide works. I'm not going to argue with people who express opinions without trying and consider themselves smarter and more prepared than others.
