Downgrade Is Risky!!
Some people Did it successfully, Some people Not...
But If you really want to go back to 4.4.2 then you have to convert your Moto To GPE 4.4.2 by flashing GPE On 4.4.4 (I Did it on My Moto G Successfully)

I have an issue which is not been reported earlier. Whenever I start my phone, it just gives me multiple errors - all possible processes on my phone are stopped.
I thought there is some big error behind it and thought of flashing the phone.
I followed the process as it is, ran the batch file (without bootloader lock) and nothing happens even after process is complete. I see my phone in same condition, as in same wallpaper and same multiple errors.
Let me know what can be done.
FYI - asshole service center guys told me motherboard needs to be replaced because my phone is waterlogged. They did not even open my phone. Worst services ever now a days.

I am changing to google docs and dev-host, hoping this link would survive a lot longer, and i'll be putting more mirrors soon. 4.4.4 is not Pre-installed on any Moto G, hence Restoring to stock is only possible via first falling back to 4.4.2 and then updating the system to 4.4.4.
4.4.4 is now available out-of-the box hence it is not mandatory anymore to revert back to 4.4.2 if somebody wants to restore Moto G to stock.
Direct restore to 4.4.4 is possible
4.4.2 Firmware link is for:
Model number: Moto G
Android version: 4.4.2
Baseband version: MSM8626BP_1032.355.66.00R

4.4.4 Firmware link is for:

Kernel version: 3.4.42-gb2383d6 hudsoncm@ilclbld52 #1 Fri Jun 20 00:05:34 CDT 2014
System version: 210.12.40.falcon_umtsds.AsiaRetail.en.03

Instructions 4.4.2 / 4.4.4:
1. Download 4.4.4 or 4.4.2 and Extract it to a folder
2. Download mfastboot-v2 and Extract it into the same folder
3. Reboot the phone into Bootloader
4. Run Following commands from the Command Prompt after cd-ing to the folder, one by one If you do not wish to lock bootloader skip 4.1 and 4.3

And the Phone is as good as new for Asian Phones!
Optional ::: Upgrade from 4.4.2 to 4.4.4:
In most cases this method will not be needed but in case if someone is on 4.4.2 and wants to upgrade to 4.4.4 without loosing data then this method should be used. Downloads 4.4.4 Update File:
2.here (Torrent) by @archies20 :: Rename the Downloaded File(If Downloaded From Torrent) to
Instructions 4.4.2 to 4.4.4 Update:
IF you are restoring to complete stock prefer the above method to go 4.4.4 method below is obsolete
1. Download The Firmware.
2. Copy this file into the root of directory of Internal SD (i.e Internal SD itself, no subfolders)
3. Reboot to Stock Recovery using Holding down VolumeDown+Power button to go to Bootloader, Then VolumeDown=>VolumeUp to recovery
or using ADB
adb reboot recovery
4. Apply update from SD and choose the downloaded package.
5. TaDa, Stock 4.4.4
4.4.4 Update Doesn't wipe Internal Memory
If you are looking for a Flashable Zip for stock ROM, Then you can go here by @Sk.D.
This version however is pre rooted and does not flash stock recovery!
I do not appreciate my Noob Friendly Instructions being copied! I really put hours into making it simple. Least I expect is a link to my thread
Anyone willing to mirror the link is welcome!
If it helped, Hit thanks
I followed this method to restore to stock and everything works fine. But I get no signal when my sim is inserted in sim slot 1. It detects the sim card but says emergency calls only. Howver if i insert the sim in the second sim slot then it works fine.. Any help will be appreciated
