Unhappy Moto G Telus/Koodo version - unable to flash non-Telus version

Hello,

For the better part of this evening I have been trying to flash Telus Moto G with a different ROM. I even unlocked the bootloader, but to no avail.

I keep getting the following errors when trying to flash bootloader, recovery and system:

hab check failed for boot

hab check failed for recovery

invalid PIV signed system image

(when trying to flash a ROM with three sparsechunks, sparsechunk.0 gives the error, two remaining flash correctly, the phone boots, but the phone is unusable (most of the menus and stuff is just not there)

I have tried GPE, same thing (wouldn't even boot).

Only thing that always works is flashing Telus firmware.

Is there ANY way to bypass this limitation?

Please help me!

same for me bro. I tried US retail and it didnt work. I didnt unlock bootloader so I went back to the telus one.
I dont get why you cant get it in if you unlock bootloader
anyways, I doubt there is a difference between these stock rooms. just saying..

There is a fundamental difference in that Telus version only has a few system languages, and doesn't have the ones I need.
