Default [Q] Booting with shell

Basically, my problem is thus: I changed a fairly critical system file, and forgot to chmod it correctly before rebooting. Now my phone will not boot. Is there a way I can use the bootloader to boot it up into the equivalent of a live distro that would allow me to use adb shell to fix it?

Yes, go to bootloader, choose the last point, then it will install few Moto drivers, but then you can connect with adb.
