First of all, a lot of Thanks for this useful thread sir...

I am using DroidMAXX with Unlocked BL, rooted and customRecovery flashed... I can see the lines to flash boot image and recovery image. So on flashing this my phone's BL will be relocked and stock recovery will be flashed, isn't it. Later I can again unlock using the code, right? And I can use this method to receive OTA (for 4.4.2) right?

No, this will NOT re-lock your bootloader. It does flash the stock recovery and unroot you so you can receive an OTA.

I know that this won't work for downgrading from 4.4 to 4.2.2, but I'm wondering why not? What is making it so that this doesn't work? I'm thinking it has something to do with the new recovery that was flashed with the update, but I'm not sure.

Please note, I do not do ROM support via PM. If you have a question, ask in the device thread. Thanks.

Definitely some major bugs in this build, and I'm hoping they get fixed in the next update. If they don't, then I'm just going to pony up $300 for early termination and get an LG G2.

One more thing, this should work for restoring back to factory 4.4 on 4.4 then right? Maybe my update is broken and it just needs a clean install for the battery saver to work?
