1) Is the "Droid Maxx" the same as "Droid Razr Maxx"?
2) This phone has been great out of the box (since bloatware can be disabled), so has rooting/custom ROM use been favorable for most?
3) I don't see a "Droid Maxx" section here at XDA, so it appears that I would follow the "Ultra" section for development info?

Hope these don't seem to be stupid questions but I've had a rooted Dinc2 for a while and have used this site for everything and it has been great. Just some incredible minds and resources here. I just want to make sure I'm going to the right place and wanted some feedback on rooting it.


1) Not the same

2 )I assume you have the consumer edition and not the Developer Edition. So no unlocking the bootloader. If you want root, do NOT upgrade to Android 4.4 KitKat as there is no way to root 4.4 unless you rooted 4.2.2. No ROMs (we JUST received CM 11 for the Dev edition this evening)

3) Yes, the Maxx and the Ultra are essentially the same device
