    Yep. Never take ota without reading up on it. 4.4 root may never happen.

    My toggle works just fine. Lost my SQL files and the Entitlement check is turned on. Need to regain Root. I should have done more research before hitting "Update". Now I need to find where the bounty is listed. I'll give $20 to the dev that can get my Maxx rooted.

    You didn't understand me. Try this, see if it'll bypass the check.

    I did understand you. You're thinking a widget will bypass the check, it does not.

    I already have a widget shortcut. For posterity, I downloaded the widget you suggested. It does the exact same thing(one touch tethering shortcut) as the tethering widget I had. Unfortunately, it also fails the bypass the entitlement check. After all, it's just a widget.

    I need either root or a FoxFi update.

    Or, heaven forbid, pony up $30 a month to pay Verizon for Hotspotting.

    XDA forums have a bounty thread for the Droid Ultra/MAXX, it should be advertised in other websites so other devs can know about it.

    Not good as some people have used it with apparent good results. Good to know.

    From http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2473747&page=15
    " and yes, Kingo is safe. Issue before was that kingo was using vroot method, which contrained sniffers for imei and serials. Once kingo caught wind of it, they released a new version excluding said code, which is why they have complied with XDA requirements and all threads re-opened."

    So I take it that Foxfi does not currently work with KitKat on the Droid Maxx??

    Are you saying that if I purchase the "developers edition" of the Maxx from Motorola itself that foxfi would work?

    No, but you can downgrade the phone back to 4.2.2 after unlocking the bootloader until FoxFi does work.

    You wouldn't need foxfi. Just root and do the entitlement apk hack.
