Default [Q] XT905 can't flash rom (system)

Hi all!

Tried to unstall Ubuntu Touch and failed
I have Ubuntu 13.10 desktop, so I use android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot from ppahablet-team/tools

While trying to install Ubuntu touch I f* up boot, recovery and system partitions
Code:
fastboot flash recovery saucy-preinstalled-recovery-armel+grouper.img
fastboot flash boot saucy-preinstalled-boot-armhf+grouper.img
fastboot flash system saucy-preinstalled-system-armel+grouper.img
I've found 98.21.7.XT905.Retail.en.AU zip-file and flashed boot_signed and recovery_signed. Recovery mode started working after that.
But the large file such as system_signed fails to flash with
Invalid sparse file format at header magi (if fastboot is used)
or
writing 'system'... INFOProtocol error (if moto-fastboot is used)

My attempt to use recovery mode (stock or CWM) failed too.
CWM says:
Can't partition non-vfat: datamedia
Can't format unknown volume: /emmc


Any ideas?

I cannot tell what you need to do but I may be able to tell what you may have done wrong if you post much more info.
Your eventual savior may need it.
The about phone data & such.
I guess you cannot use RSD lite.
Moto X, Razr M & msm8960 STUFF

Android File Transfer SUCKS! Is there a no root solution for Osx? I am resorting to Parallels DeskTop-W7. Wait Wait Wait: My OTG fix works!

Solved

I've found in my junk-box a half-alive notebook with WinXp, then istalled
RSDLite 6.1.5
Motorola_End_User_Driver_Installation_6.2.0.msi

and flashed this ROM via homemade factory cable:
9.8.2Q_SMUIRD-7_SEMEAUnlk_USAXT90501TLSTRAE1019.0R_SMJBLTEAURETA IL_P008_A014_S1FF_fb.xml

Everything okay now

Guess Motorola has some proprietary issues with fastboot, so linux programs doesn't work properly.
