My thread uses the FXZ so it doesn't care what version you're coming from. It can be flashed onto any version and allows you to keep your data while doing so.

1. Download the official stock firmware for your phone and provider from here
2. Extract the zip file to a local directory on your PC, modify the XML file which is included and keep only the 'flash' commands (remove the 'erase' to keep your data).
3. Save the XML after cleaning.
4. Using motorola RSDLite, flash the zip file to your phone (now containing the modified XML).
5. After you're done, flash dhacker's new TWRP for this phone or his new CWM

Unless you're planning on installing a custom ROM afterwards, I would encourage you to then get busy with SamuriHL's thread here:
Thank you much sir, got it working.
