On a side note though, is there a way to use fastboot to flash nonstock roms? Would I just follow the same commands I did for the stock version? Is there any specific version I should download to use fastboot with it? I am still wanting an as-close-as-possible stock version of 4.4 for atrix hd. Also, did I do anything wrong the first time, or was the download corrupt?
I'm glad to hear you got things back into working order! With regards to flashing any custom ROM, the safest way is to use a custom recovery. Currently, as far as I can tell, the only official recovery for the Atrix HD is CWM but that's fine. You do
want to be sure that you have the latest, most up to date version of CWM installed. As of right now, I believe that is 188.8.131.52 (http://clockworkmod.com/rommanager
, mine already might be out of date again) and that may be where your problems came from when you were wiping and getting errors.
With regards to a close to stock 4.4 for the Atrix HD, there is an official build of CM available here: http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?device=mb886
although the latest build is from February, I can assure you that from running it on my Atrix HD it is definitely much smoother than what Motorola has offered (to date) for this device. There have been promises of official 4.4 support but I haven't seen anything come from that as of today (see here for more info: http://goo.gl/oK34W0
CORRECTION: The official support for Atrix HD is here: http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?device=moto_msm8960
It is a merged thread for all of the devices mentioned here: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Moto_msm8960_Info
I can't vouch for it personally but others have said that it has fixed a lot of bugs since the single device support that ended in February...
