Default Unable to flash recovery

I recently updated my us moto g to kitkat through the system update. I have my bootloader unlocked and whenever I try to flash cwm the recovery doesn't stick. I have tried just booting the recovery, but whenever I try that it never boots into the recovery it just starts up normally. If I try just booting into the stock recovery no options come up, instead just an android logo with a red triangle comes up. Was wondering if anyone has a working method to flash cwm on the kitkat ota

Using the official OTA file, there currently is no way to flash a custom recovery. What you will need to do is restore it back to 4.3 and then flash CWM Recovery. Then you can install the zip here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2581548

That will get you up to 4.4 KitKat and allow you to keep a custom recovery. If you want root on 4.4, just flash this in CWM after you have flashed the 4.4 zip i posted above: http://download.chainfire.eu/372/Sup...erSU-v1.86.zip

For flashing back to 4.3 follow the steps listed in this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2542219
