    The droid maxx never had a removable battery. droid RAZR maxx did.

    Yes, you'll be fine on 4.2.2 with root. Just freeze the ota updater.

    Nope, sorry, Droid Razr Maxx also has the non-removeable battery. Good news is that it CAN be done, but you have to be a little tech-y to do it. How-to videos exist, and I would recommended watching at least two, as one will never show you everything. Droids can still be started as though the battery was pulled, called a 'hard' start.

    fat-fingered and Maxx-ed out.
