I tried to install KitKat OTA, after download is failed to install.

I have root.
Did a factory reset, no love.

Any guidance?

Yea.... was doing that.
Saw the suggestion of using House of Moto. When the flash started, it failed out half way, and bricked my phone.

Not to be mean, but you must not have read his post entirely. He states that after applying the OTA to a locked phone, depending on how far it got, attempting to go back to JB will brick your phone.

However, if you continue researching, SamuriHL (who knows his stuff) has provided a way to fix ALL bricked phones now and get you to KK.

However, locked phones, once on KK, cannot go back to JB at all. Never, ever, ever. So, don't try it.

So, here is the link to help you get back to a functioning phone running KitKat:

There is a reason SamuriHL says "read, re-read and read again". The actions you are taking on your phone can lead to a brick, so you must be entirely sure of what you are doing and that you are following his steps to the letter. He even has warning at the top: YOU WILL LOSE ROOT and those on locked bootloaders will not have any way of getting it back. It is lost.

Good luck and again, please ensure you read his instructions thoroughly three times before you even attempt to do this. It will save you a lot of grief.
