There's a million threads that cover this very subject. Short answer is, if you are on 4.4.2 but don't have a Developer Edition Moto X you are SOL.. If by chance you have a Developer Edition and are on 4.4.2 you can get the unlock codes directly from Motorola and root.

Sprint boot loader can be unlocked. That's your first step. 2 things tho. It voids your warranty and wipes your phone completely. It will be like the day you bought it.

Go to the general section to the stickies...and read the complete moto x guide. Everything you need to do is in the opening post.

To add...the dev edition is no different than any moto x that can have its boot loader unlocked. The only difference at all is the dev edition keeps its warranty when you unlock the boot loader. That's it.

To expand on what @kj2112 said, Since you have a Sprint X you can visit Motorola's web site to request the Bootloader Unlock Code -> https://motorola-global-portal.custh...-a/action/auth once you complete the request for your code, your warranty is voided. Using the unlock code will wipe your phone and factory reset it, so BACK UP EVERYTHING before you make use of the code (Moto will give you instructions on how to use the code when you get it)

After you unlock your bootloader, to root see -> http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...ev-ed-t2649738

If you decide you do not want to unlock your bootloader (because you don't want to void the warranty), then as @The Tallest said, since you have 4.4.2 already on your phone you can't root.
