Default [Q] New KitKat update fails from 9.18.94 rooted, locked.

I'm currently using the Droid Razr Maxx HD 9.18.94.XT926 and I'm trying to download the new KitKat OTA, but it's failing because I rooted my phone. I've been searching, and I'm not completely sure how to go about fixing this, if I even can. I have a locked bootloader if it makes any difference. To be honest, I feel silly for not being able to figure this out myself, but I really don't want to accidentally brick my phone. Turns out I know just enough to be dangerous.

Any help would be appreciated.

Instructions here for locked and unlocked bootloader. Also can't install the OTA with root. Has to be unmodified stock with stock recovery.

OK, I figured being root was the problem. So now for my next question, how do I flash a stock ROM? I tried using the RDS Lite but I couldn't get my phone to show up. I also wasn't sure which file to use from http://sbf.droid-developers.org/phone.php?device=5 or if that mattered.

Default House of Moto setup

please understand, I have a unlocked bootloader, so please take caution and read up on things before attempting.

Here I set House of moto up for XT926 it includes everything you should need to return to stock. I selected option #1

Of course you need the correct Motorola drivers installed for your phone.

More info on house of moto here:

http://www.droidrzr.com/index.php/to...se-of-moto-20/

My personal setup of House of moto setup for XT926 9.30.1 stock

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5F...it?usp=sharing

I used house of moto to restore stock 9.30.1 then as the instructions from the link I post in a previous posted from iBolski I put the downloaded OTA Kit kat update for the 9.30.1 on my external sd card. found here

http://www.drdevs.com/devs/livingink...izon.en.US.zip

I then setup my phone up before updating, then ran stock recovery. I got the andy with red exclamation mark, held down vol+ and vol- down for a second then got menu. Selected zip from external sd. It verified things, installed new recovery then I went back to recovery after restart.

This time at the andy with red exclamation I pushed, held down vol+ then pwr button for a second. It then entered the menu, selected OTA zip again. It installed, I then finally rebooted and had kitkat running.

Thank you very much. Your instructions and file were extremely helpful. I'm now the happy owner of KitKat. For anyone else, reading, after I did everything and updated to KitKat, I had to factory reset my phone again to solve a problem with the Play Store, which worked with no problem.
