Default [Q] Can I root my phone?

I've looked around at the forums and I'm actually quite confused by it all so I'm hoping I can get a straight answer.

I have a GSM Moto X Dev Edition on 4.4.2, can I root it?

If so, which of the tools could I use to root it?

Thanks!

You can root. You need to unlock your bootloader first.

Use this thread to install a custom recovery. You need to follow this exactly like it says.
