Default [Q] Moto G 4.4.4 Towelroot?

Hi,

I couldn't find a post about this* so here goes:

Does towelroot work with the latest stock android 4.4.4 Moto G rom? On the towelroot site is says it should be compatible with any kitkat device from before june 3rd - and 4.4.4 (at least for Moto G) is younger...

* I might have missed it. In that case I'd gladly hear it

I think this exploit was fixed in 4.4.4
Mental issues lead to the use of long signatures

Care much for receiving Thanks?Bitching at the others about it doesn't help, instead better stfu and gtfo.

Not according to android police: "Update: We've confirmed Towelroot is not affected by 4.4.4."

Airtight, I thought that I've read somewhere that it was patched, but it seems it isn't.

Well, I guess it's not possible:

"Third, it won't work with Motorola or HTC phones."

Or is this an old article?

Update:

Okay looks like it's definitely now possible (from the original XDA thread):

"Newest Moto and HTC don't currently work because /system is write protected."

there is no option to root 4.4.4 without unlocking bootloader
