Looking to root your Motorola Droid MAXX? Check out the latest guide below.
Kit Kat, cannot be rooted! Only 4.2.2 can. !
KitKat can now be rooted, though it's of limited functionality. First, you have to downgrade to 19.5.3 if you updated to the recent 19.6.3. (You can do this using FXZ or House of Moto without bricking the phone.) Second, the root does not survive boot, and does not allow RW of the system partition.
However, it is doable. Jcase just released an exploit for the X that works on the Maxx.
Would I be wrong to assume that if I were to downgrade to 19.5.3 that I should be able to "roll back" to 4.2.2 and therefore be able to root easier?
Hello, just got this phone to play with when my mother in law upgraded to the Turbo.
Does this method work for my phone?
It's running 4.1.2, build number 9.8.20-72_VZW-16-5
Seeing that the posted method is over a year old, does anyone have an updated way? If not, I have a few questions regarding the aforementioned root method.
Is it possible to root the Maxx when its at 4.4.4 KitKat???
