Re-opened. Please report to the mods any further instances of arguing.
After reading dozens of pages in this thread, it appears that the Maxx (if purchased new) is not unlockable or rootable because of latest updates (4.4.4).
I was thinking about getting one, but I don't want to go down that road if there is no option for at least root.
Then I look on the CM wiki and see that the instructions for installing include using Motorola's bootloader unlock request. Is this doable for the Maxx with latest updates? I can't find anything in CM's instructions that say you must be on a certain software version or the like.
Can anyone shed light?
There is root for the Maxx on the latest (su6-7) but only read only /system. You would have baked in root and xposed on the stock rom that survives reboot and wipe. That means some root apps will work like adfree and xposed modules like app ops, boot manager, greenify etc. Apps that need to be installed into the system partition will not work. Changes to /system do not persist across reboot but some root apps compensate like adfree.
No guaranties when lollipop drops but the same method is currently working on LP phones.
