You would be able to downgrade all partitions except the bootloader and gpt partitions, so you would have mismatched partitions which might be fine at first but would be problematic (brick) when you take an OTA.

Yeah. Im an idiot. I tried to flash back to stop after coming from crDroid 5.0 and im bricked. The only thing it does is bootloop. I dont know what the hell to do.

Hi

I flashed using fastboot .. Tried twice.

After i got the 2 files and tried, that worked - so something with the 5.01 modem files.

Now if I have to revert to 4.4 I'll have to do all steps except flashing the modem I'm guessing?

I can attach the 2 files or email them to you if you want to see what the difference is.

U cannot revert back to 4.4.4.

I would flash 5.0.1 with rsdlite because flashing with fastboot is not reliable because u wouldn't know which commands to use, u might skip commands or flash extra commands that you're not supposed to flash. If u use rsdlite on the other hand, it loads the needed commands automatically from the xml.

I suspect you have run an unneeded command related to carrier configuration which broke your radio functionality.

Flash back to stock...

No I didn't flash any unneeded commands and when I reflashed using the exact same commands but using the 2 non 5.01 modem files everything was fine. I always flash with mfastboot and have never encountered any issues.

I think the 5.01 file was the TELUS image and not the WIND image. That's why when I flashed the original 2 modem files it restored my radios. Is it possible ?

Neither your original image nor the one that you flashed had any reference to either Telus or Wind, they are both retca.

Just post the commands that u used and the xml file, i'm sure it's a command that u're missing/adding.

Stuck in Fastboot

Hello,

I tried to flash recovery to my phone and the flash failed. Now when I power on, it gets stuck in fastboot. Says Device is Locked. Status Code 0. At the bottom it says: Fastboot Reason: Flash Failure.

any advice?

Thanks

Try re-flashing your full factory image.

Yep - that worked. Thanks.

I've rooted my samsung phones many times, and installed roms, etc.,but this is my first moto phone. I know this is kindof a noob question, but can a verizon moto-x bootloader be unlocked and the phone rooted? I entered my unlock key into motorola site and it said ineligible. I've found random stuff on the internet, but nothing with an explicit answer. I'm on 4.4.4.

Thanks

If you have a retail or moto maker X for Verizon (XT1060), then you have a locked bootloader and No, you can not unlock the bootloader or root once you are on 4.4.4.

Its explained in -> [One Stop Shop] How to root the Moto X - Let's end the confusion.

I have just acquired a moto X XT1058 for ATT and it is locked bootloader and it is on 4.4.4 I read that on the Verizon version of the phone you are screwed if you are on 4.4.4 but is it possible for me to unlock my bootloader and root since this in an ATT phone? I do not see an option in the moto x toolkit to root 4.4.4

Any advice is greatly appreciated thanks!

    FAQ's

    Where is the toolkit after install?

    Depends on the version of Windows you have installed, You can just make a shortcut on your desktop:
    x32 - C:\Program Files\stillthisguy\Moto X Toolkit
    x64 - C:\Program Files (x86)\stillthisguy\Moto X Toolkit


    Where do I copy the files for Bootanimation or CLogo?

    x32 - C:\Program Files\stillthisguy\Moto X Toolkit\Bootanimation
    x64 - C:\Program Files (x86)\stillthisguy\Moto X Toolkit\Bootanimation

    x32 - C:\Program Files\stillthisguy\Moto X Toolkit\CLogo
    x64 - C:\Program Files (x86)\stillthisguy\Moto X Toolkit\CLogo


    Toolkit won't open on Windows 7/8

    Right click the icon>Properties>Compatibility>Check mark Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 3) and Check mark Run this program as an administrator.


    Earpiece LED doesn't work after reboot

    This will be fixed in the next update. Just enable it through the toolkit again after reboot.


    ADB needs root for this toolkit to make changes for you, if you open the toolkit, you can check ADB root under Option 15. If ADB does not have root, you will need to install an app called adbd Insecure - Google it.

    This won't be very useful until the actual rooting is included as an option in the toolkit. As soon as that functionality comes I'll be on board!

    That is your opinion and you are entitled to have it. But my opinion and others would probably disagree. The root method for a carrier locked moto x is just an app install and then you open the app, not really needed to be added to the the toolkit. You could certainly use the toolkit to install the app and then go open the app on your phone. If you have a moto x that is able to be bootloader unlocked, you could use my tool to install a custom recovery and then install root through the recovery. So, as you can see, we have a difference of opinion when it comes to how useful this toolkit is. There are also things that can be done with the toolkit that do not require root at all.

    If you don't have the right drivers, the program isn't going to work. But I think I figured out what you are really saying, that you tried to use the toolkit to install the drivers, and it didn't work. I have a new version uploading now with the fix, and will update the 2nd post as soon as it has completed.

    Link to 1.3.1 is up in the 2nd post!
