Default [Q] New Moto G stuck at black screen after unlocking bootloader!

I unlocked the bootloader using the procedure from the Motorola website, followed everything correctly. My phone rebooted and then it kept rebooting...then I turned it off and then it rebooted again. I don't know what's going on.

Before this, it was on 4.4.2 (OTA update) and not rooted or modified at all. I can access fastboot but that's it...

Help.

EDIT: Okay, well, I still don't know why that happened but I followed the guide here and now my phone is not only still unlocked but also on the latest stock firmware. Just out of curiosity, has anyone else had this happen to them?
Phone
Google Nexus 5
Android 4.4.4 KitKat (Stock)
Xposed+GravityBox
ElementalX Kernel

Tablet
Google Nexus 7 (2013)
Android 4.4.4 KitKat (Stock)

i am having the exact same problem. i've tried every rom, flashed stock recovery several times. still get blackscreen after bootanimation. though our cases differ in that my phone sunk into water for around 5 seconds (got water damaged) and that i had this problem from even before i unlocked the bootloader. i would really appreciate at least a reply from someone who knows about this. i subscrbed to your thread.

I also had this same problem with my moto G .
I deleted the cache and the user data and then re-entered the system. (There were a few minutes, you might want to wait)

fastreboot erase cache
fastreboot erase userdata
fastreboot reboot


I hope I helped you

Default Water Damage Same Problem

I also dropped my phone in water, and it started to reboot continuously. I decided to disassemble it but now I'm getting a black screen. I know that backlight still works ok (relieved). Now I have to figure out if I connected the cable incorrectly or if I have to reset cache and format the phone. Looking forward to updates!
