Sorry Mods if this is the wrong section was just 2 many threads with people having problems was easier then tryign to reply to them all.

Directions
After doing this Your Phone This Will BeFactory Reset

1) Download The backup i made here Sorry this has a Custom Boot animation rest is stock.
Extract it to a folder on your SDcard dont just copy it there.

Im going to Assume everyone at this point has ADB and Fastboot installed if not follow the instructions here then come back

2) Download TWRP recovery to your PC
Download Stock Recovery for later use.
Powerdown Phone
Press and hold (Power button + Camera Button) at the menu use volume down until you get to AP Fastboot Press Volume up to select it
Hook Phone to pc via usb cable
Open a command prompt from within your SDK/Platform-tools folder
install trwp
Code:
fastboot flash recovery TWRP_Recovery_Filename_you_downloaded.img
Unhook Phone from PC when Finished Flashing should only take 1 minute or less.

Hit power - device turns off. Hold vol up + power, then release power. When you see it turn on, release vol up. You should now be in TWRP!
Now first thing Press Backup and make a backup of your current setup to SDcard.

3) Now somehow move the Backup you downloaded and Extracted in step one to your TWRP backup folder on your SDcard
will be something like
Make a new folder for BACKUP_NAME dont overwrite the backup you made
Code:
TWRP/BACKUPS/SERIALNUM/RESTORE_MY_PHONE/files_here
4) Power off Phone
Reboot into Recovery (Power Button + Volume Up) Choose Restore button this time choose Restore and Choose the Recovery the you downloaded.
When done flashing your back up Choose reboot from the option choose Bootloader.

Hook Phone to pc via usb cable
Open a command prompt from within your SDK/Platform-tools folder
install Stock recovery
Code:
fastboot flash recovery Stock recovery.img
Unhook Phone from USB after Flashing and press Power Button and phone will reboot.

If all went as planned you will boot up to a factory reset phone thats ready to download and install the OTA with no problems
and sorry the backup has a Custom boot animation i forgot to remove

This would be good for recovering from a soft brick as well, maybe this could be our first official sticky?

I got this to restore my phone to stock no problem. I followed this post to a T twice and upon updating my phone goes ape$hit every time.
So frustrated with Motorola right now.

So... Don't update? I'm still on the original firmware, I don't see any benefit to updating.

Are you taking the update with any toggle mods, root (I.e. Superuser.apk installed), deodexed framework, battery 1% mods, power menu mod, custom boot logo, animation, etc? I never had problems taking the update with stock rom/recovery, unrooted, with no mods installed. I used this guide to restore stock when I was softbricked and bootlooping and the update worked after restoring stock recovery.

Hello everyone,

everything works fine until I tried to flash recovery stock. This errormassage is shown in my terminal:

C:\Users\xxx\Desktop\Dokumente\Apps\unsortiert\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64\sdk\platform-tools>fastboot flash recovery Stock recovery.img
(bootloader) Variable not supported!
target reported max download size of 31457280 bytes
error: cannot load 'Stock': No error

any ideas?

Hm... I thought the line should be
Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
Obviously replace recovery.img with your filename.
