  1. This tutorial worked great for me thanks. Though I am facing one problem on my motot x play (XT1563) dual sim. My sim card reader is not working and is saying there is no sim card. If you know any reason why this would happen please let me know! Should I have maybe used a different stock ROM?

      • I found the problem to be that I was using a stock ROM for a non dual sim model of the Moto X Play, once downloading the dual sim version and following this guide everything went back to normal. Thank you for the very detailed and specific guide!

  2. my phone is no longer booting. usb debugging is not enabled and im unable to access phone. also and i am not rooted. so my problem is i cant downgrade to original firmware. when i follow the steps it is successful on some (i.e version downgraded for boot…) but i get error message for system (invalid signed system image).
    so my phone is not reverting back to a previous firmware. it reboots and briefly sows the guy and says erasing and then reboots and starts same process. i also get unable to mount internal and external memory errors.
    any suggestions ?

    • How did this happen??Can you boot into recovery?
      If your phone is not rooted and your device is locked then i will recommend you to take it to the nearest customer care

  3. i can boot in recover. i am not sure it happened either after wiping cache partition or i may have selected an option in recovery called mount partition or mount system partition i believe… not sure.

  4. i get success when flashing modem, fsg, logo etc… but when i flash system system.img_sparsechunk.0 for example i get message
    sending system : ok
    writing system : failed
