Default Problems with installing CM 11 (newbie)

So i was trying to flash CM 11 onto my Razr HD following the instructions on this thread:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...ight=boot+loop

However, after flashing and everything, my phone ends up in a bootloop... I'm on 4.4.2, 183.46.10XT926, kernel 3.4.42 and an unlocked bootloader
Any help?

i dont think cm is updated to 4.4 source yet, i could be wrong. (as it turns out, i was wrong and cm is on 4.4 source)
if it is not, you cant install it over 4.4, that's why it is bootlooping.

What do you talking about? CM11 is 4.4.4, maybe @braube is trying to install an old version of CM11 that is based on 3.0 kernel, just try the latest versions available here: http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?device=moto_msm8960

i said "i could be wrong", learn to read, or at least reply more politely with a correction.

I know you stated you followed the directions, but just in case, this is what I do:

1. Boot into TWRP
2. Wipe cache, dalvik cache, data and system
3. Install CM11.
4. Install GAPPS
5. Wipe cache and dalvik (from the Install screen)
6. Reboot and profit.

If this still doesn't work for you, you might have a corrupted download for CM11 and/or GAPPS, so try downloading them again and make SURE you are using the correct CM11 image.

If you are getting them from epinter, then make sure you choose the correct one. There are a LOT of ROM images there (for XT925, for CM10 for JB-based phones, CM11 xt926 I believe is for JB based phones, you want the CM11 with msm9690 in the file name).

I get mine from here -> http://download.cyanogenmod.com/?device=moto_msm8960

Also, make sure you have the correct TWRP installed (2.7.1.0) that is KK based. Do NOT use earlier versions which are based off of JB.

You can also use CWM recovery, but make sure it's 6.0.4.9. Anything else is for JB-based phones that haven't been upgraded to KK.

Thanks for all the replies. I just did a standard wipe with TWRP so maybe thats the problem.

Another question, is the msm8960 CM11 compatible with XT926? I read somewhere that it was but i just want to make sure
