I have tried this method on Moto G XT1033 Indian Retail Dual-Sim

Requirements :
ADB Drivers
Fastboot
Moto G Stock Firmware

Downlaods :
ADB & Fastboot - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2588979
Moto G Indian Dual Sim Firmware - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxE...it?usp=sharing
Credits : Firmware Team

If your phone doesn't turn on after the battery dies, then keep the power button pressed till you see the battery icon. Always connect to a wall charger if the battery is dead after the phone is hard bricked.

Method :
To Enter Fastboot :
1) When your phone is turned off, press the power key and volume down button for around 5-10 seconds and let it go.
2) Connect your phone to your pc via usb.
To Flash Firmware :
3) Extract your firmware and fastboot in the same folder.
4) Shift + Right-click inside the folder and click "Open Command Window here"
5) Next enter these commands without any change or mistake :

Major problems with my XT1033
Hello, please help. I have tried to follow your instructions to unbrick my Moto G XT1033 but I just get the message in the Command Prompt that fastboot is not recognised.
I think my phone was accidently disconnected from the pc when I was trying to flash back to stock firmware from CM11. Since then the phone will not shut down & only shows 0% battery when connected to the mains. It only charges the battery when connected to the PC. I can get to the fastboot screen (please see attached images) & as can be seen the phone confirms usb is connected but the phone is not recognised by the PC. Please help. I have tried all other methods without any success.
Regards
Brian
