I believe you should be using lima_32

https://mirrors.lolinet.com/firmware/moto/lima_32/official/TIMBR/

Flashing firmware with an locked bootloader is tricky sometimes
https://forum.xda-developers.com/general/rooting-roms/guide-flashing-motorola-firmware-t4042039

But I recommend trying LMSA's Flash Rescue option

I alredy tried a few variants of Lima_32 (Tefmx because of the rio.carrier, retail, retla, openmx,timbr) and all of this was on the PMDS 29.70-81-5, didnt know what to, i read somewhere that i need to install the same factory firmware to avoid the"Startup Failed" Error or rather the lastest firmware, you think that if i wait to a new firmware update cold be able to install it? why i cant boot with any firmware ?
