Default [Q] moto g died / bricked help!

hi, i'm sorry, but i need help urgently. I unlocked the bootloader and flashed an international firmware so i can update to 4.4.2, since kitkat is not available in my country yet. then i tried to root my phone using superboot-windows.bat, and when the phone restarted it showd the moto logo, but it faded to black. so i turned it off, but now it doesn't turn on. is there a way to turn it on via adb or fastboot from windows?
please help i'm panicking.

As long as your bootloader works, your phone will always be recoverable. Also, it's almost impossible to kill your bootloader, since the phone prevents you from downgrading it. Moto loves the community, and this is a way to show it; a hardbrick proof phone.

yeah, i got scared because it didn't turn on or boot in any way, i tried everithing: torn on botton, log press turn on button, vol- and turn on, lon press booth, and it didn't response... if only the bootloader, but nothing. also the pc didn't recognice it, and i checked the usb power suply, it wasn't receiving any voltage... i was going to send it to the dealer and try my luck, but then the miracle happenned, and now im happy!

It sounds like it ran out of battery during the procces, and then recovered part of it via usb.

So, is your phone dead, or you recovered it?

I can recover with a tool from moto, because the phone doesnt turn on and only have a "special qualcomm download mode"
