Default [Q] Any thoughts or news on an unlocked bootloader?

I know an exploit was shown at Blackhat 2014 in August but i also know there was some question as to weather the exploit would be released. Is there any news on that exploit being developed into a usable one for the masses? I am debating between updating to 4.4.4 or trying to hold out for longer for the exploit.

I updated and If I had to do it again I'd wait. None of the root options work and the new dialer is OK but not worth missing out on a chance to unlock the bootloader. Just my opinion.

It is being discussed at

We have no word on any developers working on making a tool or repeatable process based on the exploit for the masses to use.

So we have no idea when, or even IF, anything will come out.
