I have a rooted Moto G phone. It is android 4.3 , I cant update it to 4.4.2 Kitkat for some reason.

I saved Kitkat to the SD Card, loaded into Recovery mode on the MOTO, then tried to install Android 4.4.2 from the .zip file
saved on the SD card in my phone.

I cant get this to work and i tried to install CARBON ROM the same way with out any results.. it says ERROR and fails to install.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

ALSO does android need to be updated to 4.4.2 to install CARBON ROM?
Thanks

I don't know but maybe can help...
I could update successfully to last minor 176.44.1 update only after flashing stock recovery.img from my exact stock ROM.

after rooting process on KitKat motoG my recovery was modified, restoring the stock one worked for me. I just updated ota normally in WiFi without problems.

after that I flashed cwm recovery.

I restored to stock recovery and removed root. After that applied KitKat OTA, then flashed custom recovery and re-rooted.

this involve wiping of all data and a factory reset, so first try just restoring the stock recovery.

If not working make a good backup first.

Thanks

Flashing a ROM overwrites system partition completely. You could have android version 1 running and still just flash another ROM
