Hello.

I own a Moto G (Global GSM) running CyanogenMod 11 rooted with TWRP recovery and the bootloader is unlocked. I have been trying to go back to the stock firmware using this guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2542219 but I have a problem. The adb drivers for my device work fine when I am in the system or in the recovery, but don't work in the bootloader. I am able to type "adb reboot bootloader" when I'm in the system/recovery and it will follow the command, but once I get into the bootloader it stops. When I type "adb devices" a line saying "List of devices attached" comes up with nothing underneath it.

I am completely lost and would greatly appreciate any help. Also I am new to XDA.

Thank you

When you are in bootloader you have to use fastboot. Type 'fastboot devices' and you'll see the connected device. Refer this guide "[Guide] How To Setup And Use Fastboot" for more info: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2277112

When I do this, a blank line comes up underneath "List of devices attached". I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

Have you enabled 'USB Debugging' in Settings and allowed your computer to access it?

Yes, I did. It has something to do with the ROM that I was on. For some reason, it won't recognise my device anymore, no matter what ROM I use. It doesn't really bother me though, there's plenty of ways to do things nowadays.

USB Debugging nor the rom have anything to do with fastboot.

Are you using a Windows PC? If so, when in bootloader mode, check your Device Manager and see if the driver is loading correctly. If it isn't, it'll have a yellow exclamation symbol next to it. If that's the case, you'll just need to manually load the driver from there.
