there is a way to get root on 4.4. once you have upgraded to 4.4.4 I dont know if you can revert or not. You may want to read this thread, it saved me once.

If your bootloader is locked - no root for 4.4.4 yet, if ever

If your bootloader is unlocked, you can flash a custom recovery and root.

Cannot downgrade from 4.4.4 and it does not matter if your bootloader locked or unlocked

If you buy an unlock code from china and unlock your phone (please note that during unlocking the bootloader your phone will be reset and wiped, including pictures and other user files) then you can flash custom recovery and root.

Even unlocked and rooted, you will not be able to downgrade - you are stuck on 4.4.4.

For unlocking and flashing custom recovery read this post:
