Phone [Q] downgrade my droid maxx to 4.2.2 from 4.4 soak?

The title says it all. I really hate 4.4 on this device and would like to root so I can get the real 4.4 launcher and apps. Is it possible to downgrade?

Nope not unless you a a Developers Edition with boot loader unlocked. This is because signature check prevents downgrade from 4.4

1080xt root 12.15.15

You're likely going to be waiting a long time. VZW and/or Motorola isn't going to be unlocking it anytime soon and I don't believe there's anyone that has come close to being able to do so. You are much more likely to get root at some point in the future, if someone comes up with an exploit to do so.
