As seen on Droid-Life

Verizon is re-branding the Motorola RAZR M as the Motorola Luge and marketing it for Pre-paid service.
From all early reports it is ... the exact same phone. (XT907)

If anyone can confirm this, perhaps the forum name needs to be modified to include the new device.
(Just in case any prepaid customers buying a brand new 2012 mid range device for more than you can buy an M on Amazon or Ebay want help rooting and pwning their device.)

I hope too, official Android L (KLP?) would be great. And also that somebody will find a way to unlock and root it (and RAZR M on 183.46.13 too)

With boot loader unlocked you can flash root. The important part is for you to unlock your boot loader under kitkat.

You can unlock and root the M on that version.[emoji6]

Further to that point, note that Verizon is still selling the actual RAZR M (branded as such) on its website in August 2014 -- $0.49 on a two-year contract or $14.99/month on the "edge" program!

I would personally watch for that 4.4.4 update first.

I was invited to the 4.4.2 Motorola soak test and the soak moderator indicated that 4.4.2 was going to likely be the final update (security patches not with standing) that the M will see. Sorry.

Its all custom ROMs from here on out.
Flash 'em if ya got 'em
