I flashed it using the info from (android. gs/install-twrp-recovery-moto-x- android-4-4- kitkat)

Am I using the correct one? And after that when I try to boot to recovery, nothing happens.

Do it like so

1. Put phone in bootloader
2. Type mfastboot flash recovery name of img.img
3. Then type adb reboot recovery
4. Then install supersu via flashable zip or from the market place

But right after you flash the custom recovery you have to boot into the recovery before you let the device boot up or the recovery won't work.

How this helps

Thank you again for responding.

I am fairly familiar with using CMD and commands but I think I am missing a step. Dont I need to have the window open that contains certain files? I am running windows 8.

Right after I flash the fastboot image I get several options when I do the "hold power and down volume" and none of them mention twrp recovery. It just says "recovery". Is that normal?

Yes click the down volume until recovery is highlighted and then hit volume up to select it but you can just type in the cmd window adb reboot recovery and it will boot into recovery

It worked! The step where I was making the mistake was not booting into recovery immediately after flashing,

Thank you again!!
