I don't recommend any roms. We have xposed framework to customize factory firmware. Plus you begin to lose functionality like active display, although a few newer apps can try to replicate it.

Hi! Sorry to hijack but I'm going nuts and looked at thread for hours and hours. I'd like to ask if I'm correct that I have 4.4 and that I can somehow root it. Could you kindly link to a thread that would help me root or get me in the right direction?
I went to Verizon today and got a Droid Maxx xt1080. I want to root it so I can just use Titanium to backup/restore before I load all my apps and settings back up, or decide to take it back and get a phone that I can root ($30 penalty 14 day return). I haven't rooted anything before. It keeps asking me to "Install system update New version: 19.6.3.en.US" and I press Later. About Phone says Android version 4.4 System version 19.5.3.obake-maxx_verizon.Verizon.en.US.
Thanks so much!
