After loading the stock recovery (with Rashr) I flashed the 4.4.3 update without any problems. Everything was running fine until i decided to flash TWRP with rashr. I stupidly used the TWRP version that it recommended, version 7 I think, and now I can't get it out of recovery mode. I flashed Philz so I could access my usb drive to try a restore from a nandroid backup (back to 4.4.2), but I can't mount any of the system partitions.

I have been searching and trying different things all day, but nothing has worked and my patience has run out. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have a Mac, but have access to pc's running XP and Windows 7 if that helps.

Oh, I ran fastboot getvar if this helps?

You'll need to SBF back to stock 4.4.2, then flash TWRP. Then you can try restoring your nandroid backup.....then re-flash stock recovery, update to 4.4.3 (as before), and then make sure you flash the correct version of TWRP this time.

Good Luck

Thanks. I'll try to go back to 4.4.2 tomorrow. I thought I tried that but can't remember. What does SBF mean?

See here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...using-t2446515

Basically, SBF is a complete factory image of ALL partitions on your phone (except persist, which contains things like your MAC addresses that are specific to YOUR phone). Using the SBF to return to stock can actually FIX a corrupted filesystem, unlike a "factory data reset".

The actual SBF files are here:

sbf.droid-developers.org/phone.php?device=0

Be sure to download the correct file for your carrier, and make sure you download the 4.4.2 version.

P.S. If you want to go the "SAFE" route, SBF back to stock 4.4.2, THEN apply the 4.4.3 update, THEN flash TWRP. This way, if there was anything out of place in your filesystem, it will be fixed. You'll have to set everything up from scratch if you do this, but it is safer.

If you restore a nandroid backup, you may well re-introduce the same problem that caused the issue in the first place.
