ok this is probably a stupid question but my razr maxx HD is locked and rooted. i tried to kit kat OTA and it failed and I came here. my question is:
1) If you are locked, you must NOT have taken the update already or this WILL brick you.
does this mean since I tried the OTA and it failed I can't use this method? the OTA would download, then get through 25% of installation then fail because phone is rooted and some stuff is changed around i assume. Just want to know if I can still try this method.
What he is referring to are those who have successfully updated to 4.4.2 on a locked device. Since your's was unsuccessful, you will be ok as long as you have rebooted into the firmware you were in before you tried to update. Yes, root will cause it to fail as this update specifically looks at a file that gets modified for rooting.
