Hello Everybody,

I'm in trouble and I'm curious if anybody can help...

I played by the rules and waited for the OTA to get KitKat on this phone, unfortunately it hasn't worked out well for me. A couple weeks ago I noticed the performance (speed and battery) wasn't as great as it had always been, but I just assumed I had some apps hogging the system down, so I booted into recovery and cleared the cache. This helped a little, but it still wasn't the same as just a couple days before.

A couple days later it was still acting up, so I decided to soft reset to try and help it, but this time it took a good 10 minutes for it to get past the red eye looking boot screen, but eventually it made it. A couple days after that it started randomly resetting itself a few times a day, each time taking longer to get past the boot screen. The next day, it reset itself again and this time it was stuck on the boot screen for 10+ hours and never got past it.

Which is where I am now with this phone... I can get it to boot into recover and have hard reset it 3 or 4 times, but it still gets stuck on the boot screen and never gets up and running. I thought about trying to root it and see if there is something else I can do, but I really don't want to end up bricking my phone.

Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks for your time!

make sure you have the latest moto drivers installed on your pc
from a powered off state, hold both vol keys and power until a menu appears then release all (if it doesnt work the first time keep trying the menu is there).
use the vol down key to highlight ap fastboot, then use the vol up key to select it.
next pug the phone to your pc using a moto original cable into a usb 2 port.
open rsd (which you should have already installed), in the address box at the top navigate to the xml file i gave you that you put in the stock software directory and click it to load it into rsd.
then just click Start

if you did everything correctly it should flash all the way with no errors then reboot the phone.
be patient, some files take time to flash and do not unplug the phone until it says pass (hopefully lol) or fail.

Sorry I didn't get back to you about whether or not this worked... I was in the process of installing a Windows update the same time I was working on this, and it really screwed up my computer. Long story short I ended up restoring my computer back to before I did the update (and downloaded/installed all this stuff). But I'm good to try it now, but I'm unsure about another thing...

But when I download that file and install it, I don't get an "RSD" program, 4shared Desktop is what installs. I think I'm missing something.

Sorry again for my rookie-ness.

hmm, im assuming you have the xml file in the same dir as all the rest of the files where you deleted the original xml file from.
so either you got a bad download of the xml file or i got a bad upload.
im going to download a fresh copy and re-edit it and post it back in a few minutes.
