Hey gang. I unlocked a motorola g play 2021 rooted it and tried to flash twrp onto it whch didnt work. So I flashed the boot.img file and it restarted as a new phone would. The next morning. bear with me here. It states no OS present to boot. So I restart the phone to the bootloader and it states the bootloader is locked and now will only restart to the bootloader. When I try to flash the recovery or boot image it just stated bootloader permission denied then it fails. I have been flashing samsungs for years with no problems and when there is I can usually solve it easily. But ths damn motorola has me stumped.. Here is the getvar all info. Any help possible would be greatly appreciated. Guess Im still more of an amature then i thought. Please advise. Thanks

I tried going through the unlock bootloader sequence and this is what it tells me.

C:\Android\platform-tools>fastboot oem unlock CSSPP***#*#********
(bootloader) Check 'OEM unlocking' in Android Settings > Developer
(bootloader) Options
FAILED (remote: '')
fastboot: error: Command failed

this got me back to Android recovery page. But when I try to do a factory reset it says no directory or file present

fastboot --c "console=ttyHSL0,115200,n8" boot recovery.img

The Lenovo rescue tool fails at 40% every time.

Try flashing manually
LMSA should have a copy of firmware in C:\ProgramData\LMSA\Download\RomFiles
Or you can download it from
https://mirrors.lolinet.com/firmware/moto/guamna/official/MetroPCS/
XT2093-3_GUAMNA_METROPCS_10_QZAS30.Q4-39-57-2-2-1-1-3-3_subsidy-MPCS_RSU_QCOM_regulatory-DEFAULT_CFC.xml.zip
Unzip

First try
Code:
fastboot oem fb_mode_set
fastboot flash partition gpt.bin
fastboot oem fb_mode_clear
fastboot reboot

It might boot normally
if not try

Code:
fastboot getvar max-sparse-size
fastboot oem fb_mode_set
reboot bootloader
then try LMSA again

No good. on the first method.


C:\adb>fastboot flash partition gpt.bin
target reported max download size of 798763008 bytes
sending 'partition' (37 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.009s]
writing 'partition'...
(bootloader) Validating 'gpt.default.xml'
(bootloader) flash permission denied
(bootloader) Cancelling 'gpt.default.xml'
FAILED (remote failure)
finished. total time: 0.167s

No good on the 2nd method
Permission denied
FAILED(remote failure)

and the LMSA gets as far as 50% depending on which time I ran it and states
Flashboot Flash single partition
Flash failed please try again

Could it be something to do with the A/B Partition.? I flashed Magisk on one of them and it restarted. I went to bed and got up the next morning and here we are.
