I have just got a new droid maxx from verizon. They sent the phone with 4.4. Could I just flash back to 4.2.2?
Thanks

No sir you cannot. At this point in time there is no way to flash back unless you have an unlocked bootloader.

Sorry my friend (OP), root is NOT at all possible now. The method to get BL UL code is also closed now. So you need to wait for root procedure from jcase @ August 2014 (unless you have bought Dev edition). But that root procedure is also NOT persistent one (will loose root access on restarting phone) and limited access to system and so NOT as useful as earlier, I think...

Please do some reading. There's a number of threads about this already and all are very clear about how to proceed.

To unlock the command is fastboot oem unlock <your code>

To get root you need to flash twrp: fastboot flash recovery <twrp file> once that is done boot into recovery from the fastboot menu, in recovery he reboot, reboot system. It will ask if you want to install root, Swype to install. Your phone will reboot and you'll be rooted.
