Exclamation [Q] Bricked Please Help

After trying to update to 4.4 via the posted .zip my phone is now unable to get passed the bootloader, with the resulting error "Partition (boot) Security Version Downgraded Boot up Failed"

I have tried restoring factory via RSD Lite, House of Moto, fastboot, and through the device itself, all to no avail. Please help - I have never had a device end up this far gone and am in no desire of having an expensive paperweight.

i have the same problem
you must wait until FXZ 4.4. KitKat Firmware will be released.
then flash it by fastboot

I suspected that'd be my only option... Any knowledge on how soon it will be released? is there a normal length of time that it usually takes?

Yes you are right. It's not only yours option. Everybody of us with the same problem you have an opportunity to solve this waiting for SBF 4.4.
I think it will be in one or two weeks.
Don't panic your phone as mine is not hard bricked, it's only soft bricked. It's bootlocked - the main reason we cannot to downgrade to existing 4.2.2

Stay tuned.

You are running into a similar problem that others (including myself) have, where the 4.4 update partially installed. If you try to SBF (using RSD Lite, HouseOfMoto, fastboot, or otherwise), It will not succeed because the bootloader doesn't like the fact that you wen't backwards to an older boot.img. Currently, we don't have a new boot.img from the KitKat update because that file is not contained anywhere in the update.zip (it only has a boot.img.p patch, rather than a whole new img file), and we don't have the SBF yet. Once the SBF comes out, this should fix the problem for you entirely as it will replace your boot.img, your recovery, and system partition regardless of their current contents.
