I have an m on jb rooted with safe strap is it possible to let it take the OTA to kitkat then root with tr and unlock the bootloader? If it can update will it give me the version that can't be unlocked? If I can't do the OTA how else can I get it on the right version of kitkat?

This has everything you need... Use rsd lite to upgrade to kk make sure you upgrade to 182/183.46.10 so you can unlock the boot loader

Read through the thread linked to above and make sure you understand. There have been many people getting stuck at .15 and we don't want you to be one of them!
Firmware for use with RSD Lite: http://sbf.droid-developers.org/phone.php?device=8 . Note that unlike OTAs, flashing with RSD Lite will make you lose your data and your internal storage contents - back up first. Use the 183.46.10 one, and if you want to unlock your BL, DO NOT TAKE THE OTA TO 183.46.15! I SAY IT AGAIN, DO NOT UPDATE TO 183.46.15!!

So flash this file using RSD Lite afterwards phone will be on the version of KK that can be rooted with TR and bootloader unlocked with motopocalypse. Then can install custom recovery. I thank you for your help

As AndyYan stated read through the linked thread, it has very well written instructions complete with screenshots and links to the required files and please be sure to thank ATTACK for his time in putting it together for us... Just go to the original post for the walkthroughs and hit that thanks button to show him some well deserved appreciation...

OK thanks will check the thread when I get home. Some of the links probably just don't show up on mobile in fact can't follow the link to Web view from phone. Thanks again for the help ☺

Huh? The firmware's version is KitKat. You need the full firmware to be on KitKat and unlock your bootloader.

Bonus info: after upgrading to KitKat and unlocking, if you find KitKat's battery performance isn't satisfactory, you can always downgrade back to Jelly Bean using the guide in General section, and because this will not relock your bootloader, you're safe to do this.
If you have any trouble doing the above, read through the guide and other forum posts, and if no answer comes up, feel free to ask.

I wrote that the wrong way. What I mean is the firmware file listed is a 750mb file. For my m8 the 4.4.4 firmware update was only 24mb. This leads me to believe that this file includes a kk rom to go along with the firmware. Read a little more(light bulb went on) I thought firmware and roms were always two separate things. . . Duh now I understand why just the one file is needed. I will give this a shot when I get up. Thanks for the help again. Sorry I was asking the wrong question ☺
