Default [Q] Root on Verizon 4.4.2 with R/W disabled

Does anyone know if there is a way to achieve root with R/W disabled on 4.4.2? The reason why I want this is because I heard that xposed installer survives a soft reboot... and thats all I do anyway. Anybody have ideas?

If you are already on 4.4.2, then sadly no. You're stuck.

If you haven't updated yet, then yes...there's a way now.

Yes you could unlock boot loader and root a dev edition on 4.4.2....but even it can't downgrade. Lol

Sorry!
