Usually the Android related problems, the so called software issues, are being caused by malicious programs, inappropriate apps and by other custom processes you might apply on your Moto Maxx. So, basically and most often, your Maxx might get bricked while you try to gain root access, install a custom recovery image, flash a custom ROM, apply a custom kernel, overclock the CPU, remove bloatware and so on. In order to make everything clear, these software related issues might refer to bugs, lags, screen freeze, alerts, errors, battery drain, heating issues, boot loops and also total blackouts.
All these are representing a particular case: the software brick. Luckily for you, if you soft bricked your Motorola Moto Maxx, now you can easily learn how to manually unbrick your Android device. Of course, you can also hardware damage your handset, but in that situation you have to take your phone back to service – note that if you can’t reclaim the warranty of your device, you will probably have to pay for the technical assistance and it can get quite expensive.
Good; as already pointed out during the introduction from below, you can also use this step by step guide for downgrading your Motorola Moto Maxx to stock Android OS. Restoring your Moto Maxx back to stock firmware is extremely useful as this operation can be used in the following situations: you want to revoke root access, you want to reinstall all factory and default restrictions back, you are currently running on a buggy custom ROM and want to go back to stock software.
The best is that the troubleshoot solutions from below can be applied on both rooted and locked Moto Maxx and whether your phone is installed with stock Android OS or with a custom ROM. As mentioned, after dealing with the guidelines from below, root access will be revoked (only if you had ensured root previously) and your phone restored back to its initial state.

Thus, use backup and restore apps and other similar tools, such as cloud storage platforms or a computer, and save your contacts list, call logs, text messages, internet settings, market apps, images, videos, audio files and everything else you might need afterwards.
As you will see during the steps from below, a computer will be required. The flash tool will be downloaded and installed on your PC. Moreover, your phone and its USB cable will have to be near you.
