My grammar book says that にかかわらず and にもかかわらず are two different constructions with different meanings.

にかかわらず means "without relation to A"
にかかわらず、よくれる。

にもかかわらず means "even though A"
にもかかわらず、けた。

You're right - looks like there were some typos on the initial entry of the grammar. Thanks for pointing it out!

What's the difference between this かかわらず #1 and the separate entry of にもかかわらず (https://www.renshuu.org/gramma...)?

They look to be the same!

That being said, they somehow both got added into separate grammar quizzes, so I'm going to leave them separate.

According to the Bunkei Jiten, with a verb or adjective in the second usage (regardless), you need to use opposing forms (e.g. くないにかかわらず or するしないにかかわらず). But the third example and the construction don't seem to reflect that.

Thanks! I've adjusted the meaning slightly and moved it up to usage #1.

I still see the same construction as before (V+にかかわらず, no mention of opposites or adjectives).
