    I'm not exactly booting into fastboot -- that's the only thing that the phone will go to. It doesn't go to it from a menu. I'm not sure how it gets there. When I plug the phone into the factory cable it shows a green light and the computer gives a "connected" sound. The green light goes out and I usually press and hold the sound up and down with the power button until the green light goes on again. The fastboot screen eventually comes up even if I don't do that.

    I tried flashing with the instructions for your link. After removing the "get var", "var" and "oem" lines from the rom, rsd lite 6.1.5 and 6.1.5 no longer gave the "unknown fastboot command" error but went back to the "failed to flash gpt.bin".

    I'm wondering if there's some way to erase everything and completely reformat the whole phone. There has to be something on it that's preventing it from being flashed.

    Oh! Can you post a picture of the screen of the device when you turn it on?

    It's the normal AP fastboot screen. I get the same screen on another droid razr m when I press the up and down volume plus power and then go to fastboot in the menu.

    This is what it says:

    AP Fastboot Flash Mode (S)
    10.9B(#) (sha-61146a2, 2014-07-29 06:20:44)
    eMMC info: Size 8GB

    Device is LOCKED Status Code:0

    Battery OK

    Transfer Mode:
    USB Connected

    failed to write partition gpt_main
    failed to load GPT
    CID Read Failure
    Invalid CID status 0x69
    No SP partition found
    Fastboot Reason: Invalid GPT

    Your going to have to try extracting the parts, and using fastboot manually. It is a special version of fastboot from Motorola. The house of moto messed it up good. You may have to send to get repaired

    Are you talking about mfastboot? I would like to try to do the manual fastboot commands.

    Yeah use mfastboot and try flashing manually. Can't hurt at this point.

    Copy the xml file from the zip on here so I can see it. From what u remember there was a line about the max download size that needed to be deleted. It's been a couple years so I'm just basing this off of memory. Letting me see it will let me know if I'm right or wrong.

    The "Variable not supported!" looks like a bad command was entered, maybe.

    Not sure it's the same, but do you remember this @GoCliffGo05 Unable to Flash TWRP

    Tapped from a Nexus 6

    I was flashing manually using mfastboot. (didn't know if that was clear)

    Here's the xml:
