You can't downgrade from 4.4.4 unfortunately. You will have to wait until they get root on 4.4.4

How likely is that? Would I be better off finding a different phone?

My opinion? No, keep the Maxx and root (if you can and are on 4.4, if not, disregard). So far I've liked my Maxx the best of any android phone I've had (Droid X, S3, HTC DNA, Note 2, S4, G2) because it is so close to stock android. It's basically why I rooted and rommed in the first place on those phones. Plus, the radio in this phone is incredible. Spanks my other phones hands down.

Maybe a stupid question, but I'm about to root my repalcement Maxx (bad speaker on current one). What is the advantages of disabling write protection? I root mostly to use wifi tethering and to use titanium backup to backup my app data. Will I still be able to do these with wp on?

You need to disable write protection to make it stick. If not you loose everything after a reboot.
