Impossible to say, we don't have 4.4.2. There's already a few threads discussing keeping root on the small update though.
Please note, I do not do ROM support via PM. If you have a question, ask in the device thread. Thanks.

Take it for what its worth but I updated my wife's RAZR m with 4.4.2 and couldn't keep root. I tried to hide root update failed tried root survival using supersu update failed. Both times it failed due to root being detected. Will it be the same for the maxx I don't know but it ain't looking good.
