Guys,
I'm desperate. I updated my Maxx (which I love) to 4.4 before my company did their security testing. Subsequently, the 4.4 update failed testing with corporate policies. Today I got email stating that I have to "return" my phone to IT by Jan 31. The 4.2.2 build works perfectly with corporate security policies.

Is there any way possible to revert to 4.2.2? I have downloaded installed and successfully got RSD Lite working but I don't think I can downgrade due to security differences...please help me if you know ANY WAY TO GET BACK...they are probably going to stick me with a Windows Phone until an update can be done that will fix the issues.

Argh!!!!

Thanks in advance.
Jay

You can revert to stock using Matt's utility (see http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2192467). This will get you back to 4.1.2 though (I think).

Thanks for the tip...Do you know if the utility works on the DROID Maxx XT1080 as well?

No dice guys. I am wondering if a true Verizon Tech would be able to revert this device back to 4.2.2. I posted on the other thread but the software is not possible from Matt to revert back to 4.2.2.

Any ideas on getting back to 4.2.2?

Dude, you have the new Maxx. You have posted in the old Razr Maxx section, so the utility wont work. You need to find the new Droid Maxx section of these forums.

EDIT: You might ask the guys here if it is possible to rollback: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2616104

Or use RSD: http://sbf.droid-developers.org/phone.php?device=4, but I guess if you took the official update you can't rollback... If you flashed through SS or something you probably can.

Sorry for the ignorance. I couldn't find the New DROID Maxx forum. I scrolled all the way through but maybe I missed it. Yes, RSD Lite does not work since I accepted the 4.4 update. Thanks for your input.

It looks like the Droid Ultra forum also has the Maxx stuff in it. Check here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2580060
