Model number   DROID RAZR MAXX

Android version  4.1.2

Baseband version   CDMA_N_05.21.00R


Webtop version  wt-3.0.0

Kernel version  3.0.8-g3617609

No, the Razr Maxx is doomed to remain on 4.1.x

Verizon has stated that they will not release KitKat for the Razr Maxx.  The Verizon representative I spoke with stated they tested it on the Razr Maxx and decided it did not perform well enough.  Which sounds bogus to me since KitKat was deigned to make budget phones perform well. 

But I hope they release a patch for this new Fake ID vulnerability.  It has been available since April so now we are just waiting on Verizon to release it to us customers.
