WARNING: THIS IS FOR THE MOTO MAXX ONLY. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE THAT MIGHT HAPPEN TO YOUR BELONGINGS.

@respider made a custom recovery for us. It's not even beta, it's alpha. What it means is that it's the first attempt to make a custom recovery. Bugs are expected.
To root, you can use the attached datroot, or SuperSU

Before anything, go to the Motorola website and unlock your bootloader.

1. Download the file attached. Download the recovery
2. Leave the maxxpatched.img in your PC and put datroot.zip in your phone.
3. Open a terminal with adb and fastboot. If you don't know what i'm talking about, Google it.
4. In terminal use:
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
Your phone will reboot and you'll see the fastboot screen.
5. Unzip the recovery and rename the file to recovery.img
Code:
fastboot boot recovery.img
6. Now you'll boot into the recovery. Press simultaneously Power and Vol UP to show the commands.
Some users say the best way is to hold the Vol UP and then press and release the Power.
7. Install > click on the datroot.zip/supersu.zip> let it install > clear cache and dalvik
8. Reboot system.
9. You've got root.

Bummed i aint' got root. Anyway. 'mixer_paths.xml' search xda for the proper values to modify. Its super simple and should dramatically increase the volumes. I've used this method on a bunch of phones running stock 4.x.x. Will work on 5.0 also. Tested on my nexus 7 2nd gen.

I'm sure Danger2u was 'reporting' and not 'complaining'.. easy enough to understand. it's way impossible OP would have been trying this on a turbo either,...

There needs to be a Moto Maxx forum. Seeing this in the turbo forum from my turbo just makes me sad.

6. Now you'll boot into the recovery.

When I get to step 5 and try to boot into recovery, only a resting android with a red exclamation point is shown.
And a text that says "Ningún comando" which means "No command".
I can't do anything else, after a while the phone reboots itself into my homescreen.

What should I do? What could be wrong?

UPDATE: Ok, after a while I found the solution:
Quote:

When it shows "no command", press and hold the VOL UP key for 10-15 seconds. While still holding the VOL UP key tap and release the POWER key. It will display additional menu options.

Thanks to sbdc003 in androidforumshttp://androidforums.com/
Thanks @alexcreto, great tutorial!
