Has anyone found the upgrade kits to convert to the MAXX HD? Pretty sure it should just be a MAXX HD back/battery like exists for the standard RAZR/MAXX but I have not found it.

Just out of curiosity, why are you considering a DIY upgrade route, instead of just selling your existing device (as used) and buying a Razr HD Maxx (used)?

Current market rate for a used Droid Razr HD is ~$350 - $400. Current market rate for a Droid Razr HD Maxx is ~$450 - $500.

The problem with a DIY upgrade is that you can't get warranty support / replacement in case anything goes wrong. And if something does go wrong with your device, it is likely a problem that cannot be easily repaired as an inexpensive DIY repair (e.g. the likely problems will be a motherboard dying, or a screen that needs replacing).
