As stated in the title, I bought a Droid Maxx that apparently is bootloader unlocked. Does this mean I accidentally got a dev edition? Because as far as I know, it's impossible to unlock the retail version...

does it say Developer Edition below the Verizon logo on the back of the phone? If not you might want to talk with a developer on here....

No it doesn't actually, I've looked at as many possible distinguishing characteristics on the device and it seems to be the retail version...

So are you able to flash a custom recovery on that?

Not sure, is it worth trying? As of now I'm still on 4.2.2 with root and write protect off, and don't want to have to do any full resets if I screw anything up. Also, are there even any custom recoveries available for these devices?

Here is a version of TWRP for 4.2.2 http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2458449&page=7 link is in post #3. You can try flashing it in fastboot to see if it will overwrite the stock recovery. I don't believe there is any risk. If it's not compatible it will simply fail.

Method is to flash via fastboot, reboot bootloader, reboot to recovery then reboot system.
