you were saying it could be hardware problem. How?

OK, so nothing failed?

Recovery won't work huh? Are you pressing VOL UP + POWER after you enter recovery? Normally you just get a black screen until you press VOL UP + POWER multiple times. But if you are flashing the full SBF as instructed, recovery really isn't necessary...

How could it be a hardware problem? Good question. These devices have thousands of tiny intricate parts. I won't pretend to be some kind of expert, but random failure is always a possibility. It is rare, but the fact that this whole issue happened seemingly randomly would suggest that a Hardware failure might be the case.

Now, Since the Moto X has only been out for about a year, consider the possibility of getting a warranty replacement! The USA models carry a 1-year warranty. You might check with Moto to see if your XT1052 variant does as well.


Good Luck

Nothing failed Right. I pressed VOL DOWN+POWER, then chose recovery and the screen went blank for about 5 minutes bfore it restarts itself.

No lying Android symbol, nothing.

So I guess its pretty much it. This is hardware failure. This is just two months old phone, and since boot loader is unlocked, the warrenty is void. Replacement can be very costly now i guess.

OK First, it is normal to have the screen to blank after you enter recovery. Once you see the blank screen, you are supposed to press VOL UP + Power (sometimes multiple times) before the recovery with the dead android appears.

Second, many people have advised that even though they unlocked their bootloader, Moto replaced the device under warranty anyways. I'm not saying that they WILL, just that they have for others in the past. It is definitely worth checking with them to see if they will replace it. If they don't ask you, don't mention that you unlocked it.

Hope you are able to obtain a replacement.
