Unhappy [Q] Dead?

I was working on getting 4.4 AOSP kitkat on my Atrix HD, and it was going great. While backing up with CWM, it failed on the data, but I figured I could just restore my files from a back up. When I went to put the rom on it, I got some no_contexts error and it said somethign about metadata. I tried to restore the backup and got a md5 fail. I used the advanced restore to let it skip the data part, but all parts gave a md5 fail. Now for somereason, I'm unable to connect through ADB, though fastboot still works, so I can't try pushing a stock rom. I tried adb sideload, but that didn't even remotely work. I also can't charge my phone, and it has a low battery. Does it charge in fastboot or recovery mode? Please help.

Talking Phew :D

Ok, so I was looking around for a way to get back to stock without adb, which, as I said earlier, I couldn't get working halfway through. I was looking around for a way to do it with fastboot, and found rsd lite. I downloaded the files I needed, but it always failed 1/23. I then thought to just do it manually, and it worked perfectly

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 As of right now, I believe that is 6.0.4.4 (http://clockworkmod.com/rommanager, mine already might be out of date again) and that may be where your problems came from when you were wiping and getting errors.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...
