I have just rooted my 4.4.4 Xt1028 using KingRoot v 4.5.0 it's not permanent and I can't get xposed to install because of the ro system, My main phone is an xt1028 that was unlocked with sunshine on 4.4.3. However sunshine doesn't support the 4.4.4 so Im at a loss on what to do next. Any suggestions?

Indeed, I've stumbled upon the same thing!

Root goes away after a reboot, but enough to run TitaniumBackup, or a few other apps that want root in order to read the file system.

This is identical to the prior PIE exploit that worked up to 4.4.2 I wonder if there is a way to package this stuff from KingRoot in order not to waste time running it so obviously after each reboot ...

i got a 2013 Moto G Vzw prepaid that i got back when they were $24.95

been waiting to see if it can be rooted or unlocked to get CM installed or something

i turned it on today, tried the activation bypass and i was able to get into the OS
( pressing next, pull down noticication, then multitask and swype away)
(this device is on KK 4.4.4)

i was able to install and run kingroot 4.5.0 and it gave me some error, BUT it worked successfully anyways....
i can confirm root with titanium and terminal etc...

i have yet to restart it, but my purpose of this is to use it as a gopro remote, or playing ingress or some type of home automation

this should get my by until something else is found

The root is temporary whether or not you reboot. After a while, root stops working and sometimes makes your phone unstable. Everything may start to crash and you'd have to reboot your phone.

This is true, I've seen it too.

What is interesting is that root checker claims that there is /system/xbin/su present by Kingroot. But /system is always read only. ES explorer appears to create files in /system, but if you quit and re-launch, there are no files there.

From shell, I tried to quickly replace KingRoot with SuperSu :

This did not work since in shell it claims that the file system is read only.

I wonder how Kingroot manages to maintain the illusion of /system/xbin/su for a while.

There could be a way to authorize SuperSu with Kingroot, and keep the temporary root all the way until a reboot.

I would be so happy to have xposed frameworks at least maybe busybox. my main phone is an xt1028 unlocked but my brothers was already on 4.4.4 that's why I'm so excited about this progress

If it manages to write into /system, perhaps we can exploit KingRoot to do some more in depth stuff?

It does not write into /system, it just fools the OS for a short while that somehow "su" was placed into /system/xbin . That's the strange thing about it!

I read it uses an exploit on the system to gain root or temproot. Maybe we can do the same?
