What's the best and easiest way to basically root Sprint 4.4.2 kitkat? I only want the Wifi Tether app running.

You'll see plenty of posts about this, but I believe unless you have a bootloader that can be unlocked, there is no root for 4.4.2

true but all sprint Moto X's can be unlocked; it just voids your warranty.

get a bootloader unlock code from Motorola - voids your warranty but it is the only way once you are on 4.4.2.

Yeah, when it comes to 4.4.2, unlock your bootloader via Moto's web site (which voids the warranty on non-Developer Edition phones) -> https://motorola-global-portal.custh...-a/action/auth

Then root by following -> http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...ev-ed-t2649738
