How to cd into directory?

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.

LOLLIPOP is out. KITKAT is moved into Legacy Section
UPDATE: 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 All KitKat Roms are moved into Optional section. I still love kitkat and I am not ready to move to 5.0.2. I will wait for it to mature
UPDATE: 5.0.2 is now available out-of-the-box hence it is possible to revert back to it directly! Sorry, I have been little late in uploading because of my exams
Thread is little messy, I might organize a bit more.

When Can I Use This?:
1. Your phone is soft-bricked
2. Your phone is hard-bricked but goes to bootloader
3. You want to update your phone to 5.0.2 and OTA is not working.
4. You want to downgrade from 5.0.2 to 4.4.4 or 4.4.2
5. You just want a factory reset
6. You want to come back to ASIA Retails after wondering in GPE or GB firmware

Pre-Requisite:
Installed Motorola Drivers.

Instructions:
1. Download 5.0.2 firmware and Extract it to a folder (More Links and mirrors in Downloads section at the end of the post)
2. Download mfastboot-v2 and Extract it into the same folder
3. Reboot the phone into Bootloader
4. Step 4 can be done two ways Method 1 is manually typing commands and teaches you how a bit about android Method 2 is more automatic and easier
Method 1: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
4.1
Code:
mfastboot.exe oem lock begin
4.2
Code:
mfastboot.exe flash partition gpt.bin
mfastboot.exe flash motoboot motoboot.img
mfastboot.exe flash logo logo.bin
mfastboot.exe flash boot boot.img
mfastboot.exe flash recovery recovery.img
mfastboot.exe flash system system.img_sparsechunk.0
mfastboot.exe flash system system.img_sparsechunk.1
mfastboot.exe flash system system.img_sparsechunk.2
mfastboot.exe flash system system.img_sparsechunk.3
mfastboot.exe flash modem NON-HLOS.bin
mfastboot.exe erase modemst1 
mfastboot.exe erase modemst2 
mfastboot.exe flash fsg fsg.mbn
mfastboot.exe erase cache 
mfastboot.exe erase userdata
4.3
Code:
mfastboot.exe oem lock
4.4
Code:
mfastboot.exe reboot
OR
Method 2: Download Retail_AS.bat/Retail_AS+LockBootLoader.bat from Attachments, Extract it to the same folder and just run

5. And there you go! Phone is booting Lollipop

Remedy ::: Flashing Failed

Thanks @sw33ty4ppu for asking this question.
Critical Commands (Absolutely Necessary Commands, which if failed will hard brick)
Code:
mfastboot.exe flash partition gpt.bin
mfastboot.exe flash motoboot motoboot.img
mfastboot.exe flash boot boot.img
Non-Critical (If these failed, It will still allow you to go to bootloader and start flashing again)
Code:
mfastboot.exe flash logo logo.bin
mfastboot.exe flash recovery recovery.img
mfastboot.exe flash system system.img_sparsechunk.0
mfastboot.exe flash system system.img_sparsechunk.1
mfastboot.exe flash system system.img_sparsechunk.2
mfastboot.exe flash modem NON-HLOS.bin
mfastboot.exe erase modemst1 
mfastboot.exe erase modemst2 
mfastboot.exe flash fsg fsg.mbn
mfastboot.exe erase cache 
mfastboot.exe erase userdata
First check which command gave you an error in flashing.
  • Any of the non-critical command fails to flash, You can start flashing again and hope it might work, you can also check if the downloaded files are proper or their extraction from zip is proper. You can ask for help here on XDA in Q&A section as well.
  • Any of the critical command fails to flash, it is absolutely necessary that you do not exit bootloader. Because when device is in bootloader mode, bootloader is loaded into RAM and is still the original copy, you can still take the phone which is already in bootloader mode to a friend's place and get the flashing done there. But if you reboot bootloader somehow(knowingly/unknowingly). Man, You're screwed. Morale of the story, don't turn off/ reboot your phone until correct flashing is performed.

This also is another reason that experienced users prefer to enter commands manually than rely on an automated .bat or .sh script.


OTA update instructions

There are two things necessary for OTA
1. Stock ROM (so you get notification)
2. Stock Recovery (so the update is automatically installed)
FAQ:: Does having root affect the OTA update? ANS:: No
FAQ:: Can I retain root after OTA? ANS:: No, root is lost


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
