Plug it into your PC so you can see the green light. Hold all 3 buttons until it turns off. Then let go of all of them, then hold the Vol Down and power buttons, and when you see the boot logo (Moto logo) on the screen let go of the power button and continue holding Vol Down until you get a black screen with white text. At this point, you can try flashing a new firmware with Myth Tools. Don't flash a custom ROM, only official firmwares.
If you don't have Moto fastboot you can search around for it.

Thanks for that reply. Saved me. However I was unable to get myth tools to complete anything.
Finally I found the rsd lite . Then it failed each time. But I figured out there was a problem in flashing the modem.
I fastboot the modem separately , then ran rsd with the stock firmware found in one of these threads and finally got my phone back.
Now, I'm rooted, boot loader unlocked, and have philz recovery on it.
Somehow I'd lost recovery of any kind. And every flash failed, with an error of no block (and I forget the three letter name it had on error).
This is my first Motorola that I've messed with. I've had galaxy's for the most part.
I tried the pa moto ROM. But had no WiFi so I didn't go much further with it. Restored the backup I made with philz.
Going to try some different ROMs tonight.
On flashing back to stock, just keep trying as it seems very touchy.
Also be sure to delete the lines in the XML file in firmware. Everything went a lot more smooth after that!
