Well, you can downgrade to 4.4, take the 4.4.4 OTA, and then flash the latest TWRP and install the apropiate root for the phone.

I was already at 4.4 then took the ota to 4.4.4 seems to be several versions of twrp. Just wondering what works for the maxx and does root change with the new ota?

Use whatever version you want, 2.7 works though. The update didn't require stock recovery or removing of root though. Not sure what you mean by does root change but same process as it has always been.
Please note, I do not do ROM support via PM. If you have a question, ask in the device thread. Thanks.

So your saying you took the OTA with twrp? Or you manually flashed the update in twrp?

Flashed in TWRP. Same end result with half the headache.

I thought I had to go back to stock to take the update so I did. Sorry I didn't keep twrp and do it that way. Oh well. Thanks for the replies I really appreciate it.

Once on 4.4.4 - you cant downgrade, the bootloader wont allow you.
