    Push a flashable zip to the SD card/ internal storage and then install it with TWRP.

    Alternately if you just want to go back to stock, I'd take a look at flashing it back to stock with RSDLite

    If you can still get into fastboot, either via the terminal or the key combos (camera, vol up, vol dwn and power all at the same time, then hit the down volume button to select the fastboot option)

    Install RSDLite on your computer that has your phone drivers on it.
    (You can get RSDLite from this thread here)

    Also grab a stock SBF file thats the right one from your carrier from here.

    Use RSDLite to flash that file while your phone is in fastboot.
    ***Note: You will lose custom recovery and root in this process.

    Uh... Ok?

    You can use adb to side load it if your version of TWRP supports it, or you can use an adapter for the SD card...

    As for installing the zip its pretty straight forward. I highly recommend looking up some tutorials on youtube if you're having this many doubts/questions.

    i figured it out i just haven't found a system image that works. still says no os installed and i don't think motorola has released the official sbfs so don't know what else i can do have a system img i'm trying to flash but when i do it says variable not supported reach max download cannot flash no error. tried sideloading and it says it can't sideload the file

    I don't have your phone but Moto also uses xml files. That link above to the download files is to be used with rsdlite. Your phone will be back to complete stock after but at least it will be running.

    You can also try this link for another link to rsd files. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1858959

    Yes, my link above is to the only site I can find that provides those files to use with RSDlite.

    If sideloading doesn't work, then you're going to have to get the flashable zip onto the SD card. I've never seen that error get thrown when flashing a rom, so I don't know what the deal with that is. Is that an error that TWRP/CWM is throwing?

    you need to use Moto fastboot for the large files such a system image for web top. You can get it here download it and add to the folder where you running the commands from. Then run them again.

    Have you tired using recovery to flash a zip instead?
  20. srh010810

    srh010810 Active Member

    i got everything to recovery the phone now loads but for some reason there is just a blank screen and no icons. Far as i can tell its because the homescreen configuration is not running i can access settings but thats about it. This the same problem i was having before so I'm starting to think the phone itself might just be screwed up

    Didi you delete the launcher app? If you are rooted you can try and side load a launcher.
  22. srh010810

    srh010810 Active Member

    says launcher is installed but still nothing is there a certain one i need to use.

    you can use any launcher that works on your phone. I use apex. Can you get into recovery to do a fdr?
