Wow Justin this is great for those without locked bootloaders. Really allows them to take part in such things like the tether exploits I posted. No way to get it to survive reboot though?

This is exactly what needs to be done. I was able to revert back to 19.5.3 and have now gained root via jcase's exploit.

For those who need to know how to do this, you will need to download the 19.5.3 update for your phone:

Droid MAXX: http://sbf.droid-developers.org/phone.php?device=4 (alternate version by @NWKENT, prevents losing data)
Droid Ultra: http://sbf.droid-developers.org/phone.php?device=1
Droid Mini: http://sbf.droid-developers.org/phone.php?device=2

Then you will need to use RSD Lite to flash it to your phone. This thread will explain how to do that if you are unfamiliar. Follow the Method 1 instructions. When it gets to the part about removing <step operation="getvar" var="max-download-size" />, you actually have to remove a few additional lines to make it work. These are the lines I removed from the XML file...

<step operation="getvar" var="max-download-size" />
<step operation="oem" var="fb_mode_set" />
<step operation="oem" var="config carrier vzw" />
<step operation="oem" var="fb_mode_clear" />

Once I removed those, I was able to flash via RSD Lite with no troubles. Thanks again to jcase for this exploit.

Is it possible to use this method to downgrade to 4.2.2?

Unfortunately not, it throws an error if you try. Once you are one 19.5.3, you cannot downgrade any further.
