Default [Q] Can CM11 (kitkat) be installed from stock moto 2.3.6

I would like to install the kitkats under development. Can they be installed over a stock rom? I've installed the latest 2ndInit that I could find (it displays its version as v1.1.8), which installed cyanogen recovery v5.0.3.1. The instructions say you have to update the recovery, but the update_recovery.zip file doesn't apply.

Can I put the kitcat over a stock rom? Do I need a more recent 2ndInit and/or recovery? If so, where do i find them?

(Yes, this is a spare phone, and I am doing this for testing purposes.)

In CWM flash this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=48501247
After you have flashed this reboot the phone, enter again in bootmenu(vol - on blue led) > TWRP recovery and flash what Rom you want.

Thanks, that's working. What I had wrong is trying to flash update_recovery.zip, which looks like it is to update previous CMs. I was able to flash that .zip from the 2ndInit's custom recovery, and use that to flash CM11 Now I have CM11 on it - thanks for your help. Next to choose a gapps package. It was actually the name 'TWRP' that I was missing.

For other's convienience, you can get TWRP Manager from the market, but there doesn't seem to be an official download of the apk, if you don't want to bother setting up a google account to get it.
