    This is a quick guide to getting your self out of a hard place and back to a working phone, like I had to at one point. Figured help others out so they don't have to go through what I did searching. This is for the BoostMobile version ONLY.


    • First your going to need the files. ==> HERE
    In that file there are 3 folders for the method your going to use for that OS. Your going to have to flash the files in a certain order.


    • fastboot flash partition gpt.bin
    • fastboot flash motoboot motoboot.img
    • fastboot flash logo logo.bin
    • fastboot flash boot boot.img
    • fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    • fastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk1
    • fastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk2
    • fastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk3
    • fastboot flash modem NON-HLOS.bin
    • fastboot erase modemst1
    • fastboot erase modemst2
    • fastboot flash fsg fsg.mbn
    • fastboot erase cache
    • fastboot erase userdata
    • fastboot reboot
    There you have it you should have a fully functioning BoostMobile Moto-G.

    How do I get this whole process started? I've fastbooted from the Android platform-tools folder before but here it doesn't recognize my device?

    When in platform tools command prompt with phone fully on use (adb) bla bla bla

    When in platform tools command prompt and the phone is in bootloader on the standard non recovery meaning not in cwm/twrp/philz u will use (fastboot) bla bla bla


    So hold vol down and power for fastboot mode then open ptools command prompt and type fastboot devices u should c ur device and it should say next to it that it is in fastboot mode

    I just want to say thank you for this useful post. I just migrated from the Boost Marquee (a phone that has served me well), and of course I had to unlock and root this so I could play with it. I was a little overzealous, and I got myself stuck. This method worked very well, and I am back at trying new roms.

    Glad to be in the Moto G forum.

    Thank you, just wanted to make sure. They won't repair it if it's rooted, but they will if it's unlocked.. what do they expect people with unlocked phones to do lol.

    The only thing you have to do different is make sure you do fastboot flash partition gpt.bin and add fastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk4 after you flash chunk3(Oh, and make it mfastboot instead of just fastboot if ur using mfastboot tool from "here" link above) link:falcon_boost_user_4.4.4_KXB21.14-L1.57_57_release-keys-cid9.xml.zip - FileFactory
