    Whats up everyone I recently got the Maxx after my RAZR M and previous Droid 2. Both of those were rooted and loved every minute of them until they simply got put to rest. Had the jail broken iPhone 4 in between the 2 and the RAZR M.

    I am looking to root this XT1080 Maxx and I know I can get it done but I just want to make sure I got all the info and apps/software I need. I have always felt I could rely on the community to steer me in the right direction and Just want to double check with everyone and see if someone can post up some things I need for the root process and apps I will need like Gapps to run google based apps.

    All help during this process is greatly appreciated.

    Thank You,
    -Rick

    If it's been updated to KitKat, forget about it. It's not rootable presently. The last update to KitKat put rooting into an encrypted process that's yet to be broken.

    I appreciate the update Foxkat. I knew the XT912 with jellybean could be rooted. Is there any ETA on when KitKat may be broken? I know I will keep scanning here and XDA to see the progress on it too
