If you are having any problems with ADB not working try this fix. If this does not work try FXZ back to stock

I will walk you step by step how to install and use ADB Shell.
1. Download the Android SDK make sure you get the .zip
2.Extract the .zip to your local drive (hard drive or C: drive)
3. Download and install the Motorola drives (should have them if you rooted before)
4. You need to update the SDK in order to get the ADB files. Go to your local drive and find a file named androidsdk. In this folder you should see SDK manager. Run this and it will start by Refreshing Sources. When this is done it gives you an option to install packages. The only package we need for ADB is called "Android SDK Platform-tools, revision 6" install this. When it is done you can close everything.
5. Put phone into USB Debugging
6. Open Command Prompt and type to make sure your device is found
cd androidsdk\platform-tools
adb devices

it should show a device if it is working
7. We are now going to run ADB shell
cd androidsdk\platform-tools
adb shell

you should now see [email protected]_targa:/$ you might have a different name but it should end in $
8. type this command in the ADB shell
rm /data/local/root/local.prop
9. type exit until the window closes
