I'm running stock (rooted) 4.2.2 12.15.15 software on my Maxx, which should have included NFC unlock capability with the OTA update. However, I dont have the option, and even uninstalling the skip setup app with titanium backup and reinstalling the latest version from the play store does not give me the app or the settings option. Does anyone have an idea what's wrong? Thanks!

IIRC, in order to unlock the option (on my unrooted Maxx) I just tapped the Maxx to the skip - that started the NFC unlock setup. There was not NFC unlock setup to run until you tap the phone to an NFC unlock device.

So does the motorola skip work with the 2013 droids or just the Moto X? I can't seem to find a good clarification.

It should work on them all, and is on my Maxx at the moment

Since the 12.15.15 update from last November, it works on the Droids as well.

See https://motorola-global-portal.custh...93/action/auth (for the Maxx clarification, but the software was the same for the Ultra and Mini.)
