Default [Q] Flashable Stock Firmware

I'm looking for a flashable zip of 174.44.1. I'm on the latest stock, rooted firmware but my phone is really slow lately. I want to flash the stock firmware, rather than do a factory reset, so I can keep root.

I did a search, and found a thread with the OTA, but I'm hesitant of flashing it, as the file is only 10mb.

Can anyone point me in the direction of the file I am looking g for, if it exists?

You cannot flash the firmware using custom recovery.. Why because during the flashing process, all recoveries, system data, etc needs to be deleted.. That's y..

Thanks for replying. I didn't know I wasn't possible to flash stock firmware with a custom recovery.

This is my first Motorola device, all prior devices have been Samsung. For my last one (SGS 3), there were stock flashable zips I could use to return to stock, and some of the stock zips even let you keep root.

I wanted a flashable zip because I will be on the road for the weekend. I guess I will use the Moto G tool to return to stock once I get back home.
