This Tutorial is for Moto E that loves Stock ROM, want to unroot & lock bootloader 
has Custom ROM & want to revert, is in Bootloop,
wants Android L [OTA Update] :-P

Even though the steps are really easy but still i am not responsible for any damages [won't be there if you follow properly] :-P
Don't Expect to get your warranty back after this tutorial :-P

UPDATE* :- To install 4.4.4 stock ROM and lock bootloader click here. There is also a post to Flash Lollipop click here

Please don't do a OTA update after downgrading to 4.4.2 by flashing Stock, It will hard brick your phone!! Flash 4.4.4 Stock instead click here.

  • Download 'Install ROM file + Lock.zip' file from here.

Note:- 
  1. 'Install ROM' file is just to flash Stock ROM & it won't lock or unlock Bootloader. [those who haven't unlocked the bootloader, use this file].
  2. 'Install ROM + Lock' file will flash Stock ROM and will also Lock the bootloader [those who have unlocked the bootloader & wish to lock use this file, if you wish to keep it unlocked use the above file].
  3. Download Either of the files, don't download both !

Steps to install Stock ROM :-
  1. Extract the mfastboot.zip into a folder
  2. Copy & Extract the Stock ROM file,  'Install ROM' or 'Install ROM + Lock' file, into the folder where you have extracted mfastboot.zip.
  3. Now switch off your device [ignore if you are in bootloop :-P], press Power Button + Volume Down for 10 Sec & you will enter into Fastboot mode.
  4. Now connect the device to your PC. [hope you have motorola drivers installed].
  5. Open the mfastboot folder & click Left shift + right mouse button & click on Open Command Window here.
  6. Type 'mfastboot devices' & see if the device is connected [if not search on google & install the drivers].
  7. When device is connected, drag the 'Install ROM.bat' file into Command window OR those who have downloaded 'Install ROM + Lock' drag this file to CMD & press Enter.
  8. Flashing will Start and as per your wish the Stock ROM will be flashed & users who used Lock file the Bootloader will be locked.
  9. When you see 'Press any Key' press it and you will be rebooted to Official Stock ROM!
  10. Booting may take few minutes & sim detection may even take a little time don't panic it will work !
