Hello,

For the better part of this evening I have been trying to flash Telus Moto G with a different ROM. I even unlocked the bootloader, but to no avail.

I keep getting the following errors when trying to flash bootloader, recovery and system:

hab check failed for boot

hab check failed for recovery

invalid PIV signed system image

(when trying to flash a ROM with three sparsechunks, sparsechunk.0 gives the error, two remaining flash correctly, the phone boots, but the phone is unusable (most of the menus and stuff is just not there)

I have tried GPE, same thing (wouldn't even boot).

Only thing that always works is flashing Telus firmware.

Is there ANY way to bypass this limitation?

Please help me!

I dont get why you cant get it in if you unlock bootloader

There is a fundamental difference in that Telus version only has a few system languages, and doesn't have the ones I need.

Yes, I've finally managed to flash CWM and Cyanogenmod. Thanks for the tips!

Anyone found a way to install non-Telus stock FW or GPE on a Telus Moto G in the meantime? It appears Moto G losdt CM support, so I would like to get back to stock - but Telus version is not acceptable.

I've tried flashing the US and GB retail with no success. The result of the effort was a loss of radio antenna with no network connection. Flashing the Telus firmware repaired the antenna issue with no errors when flashing all the files. The issue seems to be the bootloader and leaves me wondering if it needs to be unlocked. I'm not desperate to have a retail version that I'm willing to void the warranty by unlocking the bootloader.
