Default Run AOSP 4.4 Mail App on Droid Maxx

I really like the new AOSP mail app for 4.4 and was bummed to find the 4.4 KitKat update for the Droid Maxx doesn't have it. Is there anyway to install it without crashing? I've tried copying the email and exchange2 apks to the system/app folder and all it does is force close after restart and clearing cache and app data. I'm sure there is more to this.

I too am interested. It would seem it needs a signature change or somehow pushed to the system app folder without root, but I'm inept in such matters

Here you go:

Just install both the Email and Exchange .apk's (download at bottom of the page).

One note: There is a bug in this version with the "push" sync option that causes a syncing loop that will suck your battery's power in no time. The temp solution is to set the sync to 5 mins (or more if you want).

Sweet, that one actually works! Now all we need is ver 4.4.2 that has the sync fix and pin bypass.

4.4.2 with PIN bypass

I haven't tried this one yet and please be aware that bypassing a corporate enforced PIN per Exchange policy can potentially get you fired.

Thanks again, works like a charm! Just needed to manually copy over the two modded apks after I installed the aosp email apks.

Still sync loops if push is activated which is a bummer. The temp solution works fine, setting to 5 min pulls.
