So, how can I protect root? I'm worried about upgrades or anything else Verizon might push down that'd overwrite root. I don't know how the phone was rooted (I assume it was rooted on 4.2.2 and then updated to 4.4 but don't know for sure). I have the paid version of Titanium Backup so if there's something I need to freeze or uninstall I'll do that. If there's a setting I can change to make sure that my phone doesn't accept an update that loses root I'll do that. I know that there's no method to re-root a Droid Maxx on 4.4 with a locked bootloader so I want to take whatever precautions I can to prevent losing root. I've read just about everything on the Motorola Droid Ultra forum and I have not found an answer to this question.
