I purchased my Moto G (unlocked, 4.4.4) from Amazon. It was a Telus CA phone. I rooted the phone and installed CWM recovery. Last night, I got notification from Telus that 5.0 update was available for download. I downloaded it and tried to install. It kept failing for the same reason - Moto Blur version did not match. Update script repeated itself (installation) for 3 to 4 times then it stopped. So far, my phone is still at 4.4.4 and not rooted. Here is my phone's information:

Android version: 4.4.4
Baseband version: NSM8626BP_1032.390.81.01P, TELUS_CUST
Kernel: 3.4.42-gb7b2f25 hudsoncm@ilclbld54 #1 Tue Jul 15 14:12:39 CDT 2014
System: 210.12.50.falcon_umts.Telus.en.CA
Build Number: KXB21.14-L1.50

New version (5.0) available for download: 220.21.32.en.CA

Is there anyway to skip the Moto Blur version check so that update can be installed ?

Problem solved by flashing stock recovery. I was using CWM recovery. Update via OTA without problem.

The stock recovery is contained in the file. The recovery can be flashed using fastboot or mfastboot commands.

Here is the link where I got the stock firmware :

Unzip the .zip file and flash stock recovery using fastboot.
