Your only other option is to find someone with the same variant as you have on 4.4.4 and ask them to do a twrp backup of just system and boot. Then flash that backup.

Remember: you can't downgrade without great risk of bricking - either immediately or in the future.

i've found an user so kind to share with me his system and boot backup!!

so how should i proceed?! this time i want to be sure

to use my moto in the past days, i flashed kripton rom! so should i just restore from recovery the backup (after a factory reset)?

You should be able to boot to twrp, and flash the backup using restore button. Make sure you erase userdata afterwards.

Before you start, you need to copy the backup to your internal storage in the twrp backup folder, of course.

Don't erase userdata until after you have restored the backup otherwise you will erase the backup! Everything on the internal memory will be erased, so save anything important such as pictures to your PC first.
