Default [Q] Rooting 4.4.2

Hi all, I'd like to know if I am able to root 4.4.2 Moto X. After reading alot, I get a feeling that one of the foremost things I need to do is unlock the bootloader. I will appreciate any help. I just need someone to point me to the right thread. I need instructions on how to unlock the bootloader.

You need to see the "Pie" thread. Your OP said you were on 4.4.2.

There is a new root method (only a partial root - Write protection is not disabled, and root is lost upon reboot), but it is handy for things like Xposed/Gravity Box and WiFi Tether.

Look under the "Original Android Development" There is a thread inside regarding 'Pie', which was authored by one of our very gifted Developers, jcase.

Assuming you are on 4.4.2, this should work for you.

Good Luck
