    Hi, so I have a Moto G 4G and recently I tried flashing Cyanogen Mod 12 onto it. I also used TWRP to flash it onto the phone however I didn't boot that into recovery I just put it in the normal boot mode. So the flashing went fine and I put it on the phone however afterwards when I tried going onto reboot phone from TWRP it came up with the Motorola unlocked bootloader normal startup for about a quarter of a second then was redirected to the fastboot menu with 'Fastboot reason: fall-through from normal boot mode' I tried selecting 'Normal powerup' but this resulted with the returned text 'Boot up failed'. The only things that I could go on were 'Barcodes' and 'Recovery' in recovery I tried to reset it and wipe it from there but this still resulted in 'Boot up failed' when I tried to turn it on. So I took it to the shop and a few days later they phoned saying that they couldn't fix it and that I must have messed up the motherboard as they had tried replacing everything that might be causing the issue. And I do NOT want to pay for basically 75% of the phone. So I went and picked it up and when I turned it on it had the original cyan 'M' and below it 'Motorola a Google company'. It stayed on this screen for 15-20 seconds then rebooted itself. I went into the fastboot menu and when I went on 'Recovery' it came up with 'Boot up failed' again but this time it was on recovery and not on any of the others, if I go on any of the other options except barcodes they all just get caught up in a boot loop again and the computer can detect the phone when it's in fastboot but its in 'Unspecified devices' and is not accessible.

    Hi charliesutton_, welcome to the site!

    I moved your thread to the Moto G 4G Root forum since this involves root :)

    Sorry I don't know if I forgot to mention it but I cannot access the phone through the computer so I cannot put the stock files into the phone to flash that from CWM. Do you know if there is any way to flash a ROM from the computer or do I have to do it from the phone?

    Would the recovery and firmware work for the Moto G from Cricket? my brother got a false FBI virus on his phone and is now completely locked. Plus could they be installed with a locked bootloader because I have no idea how to unlock this phones bootloader. Thank you!

    I don't know if you have this fixed or not, but maybe try a factory reset.

    Oh, Motorola has a really usefull page that explains how to unlock it's phones bootloader, here it goes!
    https://motorola-global-portal.cust...e/bootloader/unlock-your-device-a/action/auth
    you'll need the bootloader unlocked to flas the new recovery and firmware
    PD: Tell your brother to stop watching porn, if he wants to keep his phone working
