    I can get P.A 5 Alpha to run via fastbooting the system img, boot img, and userdata img (Seraph's Creations) but it is still in alpha so its not much use.
    I tried side loading "falcon_KXB21.14-L1.57_kernel.zip - Stock 4.4.4 kernel" and "Deodexed, debloated, and rooted Stock KXB21.14-L1.57. falcon_KXB21.14-L1.57_deodexed.zip" but when i reboot the device the screen goes black after the first world on the Moto Boot animation.

    Any help is appreciated.
    Also i dont have any backups i "lost" them. o_O

    Can your PC see your device via adb? Open a command window and type "adb devices" (no quotes)
    You should see the device listed if so you can push a zip to your SD via adb.

    Yes all that works but when i tried to reboot my phone after sideloading "Deodexed, debloated, and rooted Stock KXB21.14-L1.57. falcon_KXB21.14-L1.57_deodexed.zip" (from superr's thread) the screen comes on and then mid boot animation it goes black but the backlight is still on

    From another thread where we're helping a guy get back. May be the best way for you.
    Taken from here...

    http://androidforums.com/index.php?threads/888145/
    Post #35

    https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B4PT9WP-u_z9NXRBWF9EV2lGcWs/preview
    Go to this link and download the file. It's mfastboot. Extract it to your desktop for easy access. After that go to the link the guy above posted and download the file in the first post on returning to stock. After it's done downloading extract it to your desktop (easy access). Go to your desktop and open the file you just downloaded. Highlight all the files inside and copy them. Then go to the "mfastboot-v2" folder (you should have this on your desktop too). Paste the files in there. Now you have all the files you need in your mfastboot folder. Put your phone in fastboot mode. Connect your phone to your computer. (By the way you should have the Motorola USB drivers installed on your computer too). While in your mfastboot folder, open command prompt (Hold SHIFT button and right click). You'll see an option "Open command window here". Click that. Make sure your computer recognizes your phone by typing in " mfastboot devices " (no quotes). If a number is listed you're good to go. Okay now these are the commands you will type listed in order (hitting Enter after each one.)
    1) mfastboot flash partition gpt.bin
    2) mfastboot flash motoboot motoboot.img
    3) mfastboot reboot-bootloader

    The third command you enter will reboot your boot loader. When your phone goes back to the fastboot screen continue with the commands.

    4) mfastboot flash logo logo.bin
    5) mfastboot flash boot boot.img
    6) mfastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    7) mfastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk1
    8 ) mfastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk2
    9) mfastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk3
    10) mfastboot flash modem NON-HLOS.bin
    11) mfastboot erase modemst1
    12) mfastboot erase modemst2
    13) mfastboot flash fsg fsg.mbn
    14) mfastboot erase cache
    15) mfastboot erase user data
    16) mfastboot reboot

    After entering these commands in order your phone should reboot and be working. This worked for me I was on 4.4.2. After doing this you will be on Jellybean 4.3 but you can just go through the software updates and be back on 4.4.4. That's why I did. Hopefully this helps and sorry if my instructions were confusing this is my first post haha. Good luck.."

    Can you push a ROM to storage and flash it?

    Find a recovery image, philz whatever. flash it in fastboot just like you did the img files.
    when thats done, use fastboot and boot into recovery
    flash your new ROM, Gapps, SuperSU all via sideboot
    reboot

    I understand P.A 5 doesnt have data or voice but Seraph's screenshot shows information under his baseband in settings. I just thought it was odd that mine said unknown. I will try double flashing and i will look into the stock firmware.

    There is a way. That happened to me and there is a small window to get the stock ROM on the phone. All that I need to know is what carrier is your phone.

    Ok. Try to get into fastboot and flash a recovery. Your partions probably need a update which is in the forums. Flash the updater and it should boot properly

    Woo Hoo. Its been revived!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Sometime during the process i had download "falcon_boost_user_4.4.2_KXB20.9-1.10-1.18-1.1_1_release-keys-cid9"

    (can be found
    Here, thanks lost101) and i had placed it in my folder with adb and fastboot.
    Double clicked that batch file and it started executing commands in fastboot, which were all executed correctly.
    After that i flashed philz touch (Here) via fastboot then rebooted to recovery and sideloaded falcon_KXB21.14-L1.57_partition_updater_2 (Here)
    that went through and the phone rebooted
