    Hi, just bought a Droid Maxx off eBay. My Verizon Note 3 was just not cutting it in the signal department. Enough so that I had to sell it to fund the Maxx purchase. Luckily the talk of good Motorola radios continues to be true and I get a signal in places my Note 3 could only dream of. Other than the poor signal the Note 3 was awesome. My phone came updated to 4.4 so I have a few quick questions. Any way to obtain root on 4.4, sounds like the codes for bootloader unlock are now only for 2014 models? I have never even rooted but would like to be able to Wifi tether. Right now Foxfi only has USB tether and bluetooth tether for 4.4
    Anybody working on obtaining root for users like myself running 4.4? Will the Maxx development go away anytime soon?
    Im loving the Maxx so far, great signal, snappy, great stockish kitkat experience, etc. Missing the larger screen of the Note 3 but I might just have to get a small tablet for media use. Hopefully Motorola under Lenovo continues with the awesome radios and continues with the Maxx sized batteries in the future. I wouldn't mind a Motorola phablet in the near future =), I know one has been rumored.

    I moved your thread to the sub-forum where root-related questions about the Maxx are discussed.

    I'll start this by saying that I have not rooted the Maxx, and will not root mine. However, I believe that the phone is rootable with 4.4 at the moment, even on a normal, bootloader-locked phone. See [Root 4.4.X] Pie for Motorola devices - Page 2 - xda-developers

    However, also be aware of what is mentioned in this post: Droid Maxx ear piece stopped working - Post #1 - XDA
