[Q] New Verizon Moto X, Still on 4.2.2, Can't update

After trying all the latest and greatest, I'm back on the Moto X. Problem is, it came with 4.2.2 on it and I can't get it to update. It continually tells me either "An unexpected error has occurred. Please try again later." or another generic "can't do this right now" message that I can't recreate at the moment.

I have the latest OTA .zip, but that takes it from 4.4.2 to 4.4.4, so that won't do me much good yet. I'm trying to figure out the best way to do this... Either via old OTA .zip files, or I *am* comfortable using rsdlite and "sbfing" (fxz now right?). I'd rather do it via the OTA zip files, but if I have to I can do the fxz/sbf method. Any thoughts are appreciated!

Edit: also, if I end up having to use the fxz/sbf method, I'm assuming there are no issues with doing that for an update, rather than downgrading which has occasionally caused issues in the past depending on the version.

I'm working through this right now: http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...55-26-t2827307

But I'm comfortable doing that as I've done it in the past.

You are completely correct. That (link) is the answer to your problem.

Just a quick update - using the link above and Samuri's tools, I got to 4.4.4 with no problems. I know if you're new to doing that stuff it can be a bit daunting, but if you read up on the thread above and the RSDFlasher thread he links to, it's pretty straightforward and does a lot of the work for you unlike the "old days".
