How to Unbrick Moto X Force - Method 2

This second method to unbrick Moto X Force employs the use of Moto X Force ROM Dump also known as full blk0 backup file.
This file, saved as Moto X Force Loader.img file can be flashed on an SD Card and used to revive your hard bricked Moto X Force.


The Does and Does Not of this Method
The Does The Does Not
With the correct Moto X Force Loader.img file, you will be able to access your Moto X Force recovery partition again. The Moto X Force Loader.img file ONLY boots your device to bootloader / recovery mode and not the OS.
This method aid your Moto X Force unbrick solutions. It's not the do-it-all. This Moto X Force Loader.img file will not boot your device to OS. You need full firmware to do that.
This Loader.img file only loads Motorolla Stock Recovery partition on your device. This Loader.img file does not currently load custom recovery such as TWRP on your Moto X Force therefore, only Stock Firmware can be restored to using the method described here.
The SD Card (used) helps boot the device into receovery mode ONLY. You cannot use the same SD Card with the device except you format it. You can use Mini Tool to Partition or format the SD Card for re-use.

Troubleshoot! Having Issues Using this Method? See Below:
Issue(s) Solution(s)
RSDLite, Motorola Device Manager successfully restored my device but my Moto X Force still boots to recovery. What can I do? Before you boot up the phone or while the phone boots up, make sure you remove the SD Card from the phone.
The PC no longer see my Moto X Force in Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader mode. What's wrong? Until the SD Card is in your phone, PC will continue to seeing the phone as functioning properly but only with flat battery.
My Moto X Force is stuck at boot logo instead of booting to recovery. What can I do? Try another SD Card. You must use a first class (Class 10) grade one SD Card that's really fast.
My Moto X Force is in recovery mode but Motorola Device Manager / RSDLite does not detect it. Is something wrong? Yes. Something is wrong. Check your USB Cord, USB Port or make sure that your drivers are properly installed. With each instance, you can try with another device to confirm.
Have other questions? Good! Drop your comment. I shall attend the question(s) and also include it in the list table.

  7. While waiting to receive files, I had to do more research, because I couldn't get any of 3 PCs i tried to recognize Phone as "HS-USB QDLoad 9008"... after I came across someone else with a different device having the same problem.

    If your PC doesn't recognize device after installing all drivers, hold the POWER button for 1 - 3 MINUTES and then plug it in with a USB cable. This worked for me.

    Thank you

    1. It does work. Only that it is variant specific. You can confirm from the Moto Z Play, X Pure or X Style and other Moto devices users who have used ArykTECH loader files.

  16. I've got Moto X Force XT1581 with 64gb and it doesn't work.
    Android 7 --> BootLoader Unlocked --> Downgrade to Android 5.1 --> OTA to Android 7 --> Bricked
    I'll pay for Blankflash or Loader, but if you confirm that this will definitely help my XT1581.
    By feedback on the forum forum.xda-developers.com Blankflash does not help much.
