Ok. guys quick update.
Friend of mine who fix phones put hands on that Motorola and tried everything. As he said there is a little chance to fix it, but first of all You need to get to memory without unlocked bootloader, as it's blocked all commands. Any suggestions? I think he means memory chip must be reprogrammed, but bootloader is locked and don't take any commands.

The next steps i should take is the following, we will reformat/partition your device, as far as it goes. But I never done this, didn't need to i only know it is possible. Everything that happens now is on your own responsibility!!

1. Download your correct firmware, must be jellybean 4.1.2 from here(firmware)
2. Extract it content in a folder like "STOCKROM"
3. Download new fastboot files from here (mfastboot,xda)
4. Extract the new mfastboot files in the folder "STOCKROM" if u named it like that.
5. Connect your device with your pc, make sure all drivers are correctly installed, and boot in fastboot mode (power + volume down)
6. Flash each of the partitions in sequence using mfastboot (is like fastboot, but can install files larger then 100mb), you need to enter the following commands one-by-one checking that each one returns an [OKAY]. If it doesnt work, i am out of ideas. sry, but report anyway what happend

mfastboot flash gpt gpt_signed
mfastboot flash motoboot motoboot
mfastboot flash boot boot_signed
mfastboot flash recovery recovery_signed
mfastboot flash motobp motobp
mfastboot flash system system_signed
mfastboot flash cdrom cdrom_signed
mfastboot erase cache 
mfastboot erase userdata 
mfastboot reboot
Good luck with it, i will hear from you.


btw, erasing 'data' is impossible, fastboot doesn't know 'data', only 'userdata'

Hello Hazou! I'm having a similar problem (my thread is at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2780897 ), I tried using mfastboot and everything goes well until the system part... is there anything I could do? Thanks
