Device still won't get recognized

I screwed up when trying to install PixelExperience coming from Floko with the TWRP I had installed, i forgot I had a "no AB partition" and I guess that ****ed me over now...

All i get is the AP Fastboot Flash Mode (Secure)

blank-flash won't detect the device, but is detected in fastboot when I type "fastboot devicves" then, when I run "fastboot boot bootloader.img" or even for a TWRP recovery it seems to hang and say it's downloading, but it never finishes. Even the bootloader logs show cmd:download:0094d00 on the device screen. Same behavior when I try to flash anything.

Could this even be recovered somehow? My boot screen doesn't seem to be the same as others on unbrick videos i've seen..

Edit: I managed to somehow flash partition once... The screen looked more like the regular one and I even got back into TWRP, I tried flashing the Floko rom again, but once I reboot the device, it's back to the same screen again

This is great work, I was wondering if you would be kind enough to help me.
I have Moto G 2014, can you generate blank file for my device, or guide me who can? I tried G7 blank file but it didn't work as board is different


I know it may not work but gave it a try. your blank file on XT1068. below errorm, it seems that this meathod is supported by my device but it needs correct blank file.
C:\Users\Dipesh\Downloads\blankflash>.\qboot.exe blank-flash

I think I have the same problem.
My phone turns on directly when I put in a cable.
Or it reacts to the buttons. There is now time to wait for 15 or 30 seconds. I can get into Fastboot but Fastboot wont react only working comand is fatsboot devices all otheres Will frees like iets continiously loading.

Did you fix this?
Does anyone know a fix? For now my OS boots (default os for G6 Plus and is rooted) but I can't update upgrade flash or boot twrp etc etc....

Recently bricked my Moto G6+, don't know how it came, its screen freezed, after reboot some seconds worked, then again freezed. After several reboots (tried some extended options) it dind'nt reboot anymore - bricked. Then I found this thread and tried unbricking - but the device fails going into fastboot mode:

Hello everybody
I have a Moto G6 Plus Android 8.0 Oreo. The root I did it with the guide
Yesterday I updated Magisk, and the flash failed error appeared, but the phone kept working until shutdown; from that moment it does not start anymore. The screen appears
***********************
AP Fastboot Flash Mode (Secure)
No bootable A/B slot
Failed to boot Linux, falling back to fastboot

Fastboot Reason: Fall-through from normal mode

***********************
I tried, using the volume keys, to launch the recovery mode; they are displayed a series of data and at the bottom the writing
***********************
flashing_unlocked
Connect USB Data Cable

***********************
But here I stop because I don't know how to proceed
I tried to follow this guide but in the first post the link to the Stock Rom file is no longer available.
Questions.
- Where can I find the Stock Rom file?
- I think the problem is in the boot, is it possible to flash only this while keeping all the data?

Thank you all ;)

Ps
Sorry for my english, I use Google Translate...
