I am sure that people have ran into this question with the Chinese Man coming back and the consumer editions becoming unlocked (if you are lucky enough to be a 2014 model) My question is, i currently have an unlocked bootloader Consumer Edition Droid MAXX running 4.4 from verizon. i am looking for the correct version of TWRP or another custom recovery (not safestrap) for this phone. i apologize if somebody else has posted a thread about this, but from my quick skimming of thread titles this does not seem to be clearly addressed. Also any insight on ROMs, etc would be appreciated after the custom recovery question is addressed. Thanks guys.

Here is a better way to make a nandroid backup along with twrp links.

I specifically attempted TWRP and used flashify to flash recovery image for 2.7.whatever . is it relevant I am running KK 4.4? I then attempted philz and it worked. But I feel more comfortable with twrp as its all I have ever used.

Are you rooted? How so if you have no recovery?
If rooted you must flash the .img with Rashr recovery tools.

Read notes here as to a condition where twrp may not stick, or rather the phone acts as though it is not there & gives the Bootloader instead.
