Prompt Rooting AT&T 4.4.2

Please dont flame me for this. Yes i have searched and no i havent found a solid answer.

I recently got my moto x from AT&T and they updated it in store. ive tried most of the other rooting methods with no success. I have Linux (64 bit if it matters) working adb, and working drivers.

What are my options here? i believe i read that i cant down grade to 4.2.2 to successfully root

If someone could point me in the right direction and not flame me that would be awesome. Thanks for any help you can provide, this will be the first phone ive ever had without root if i cant get it working

Only if your bootloader is unlocked. That's it... If not then you just sit back and enjoy the phone

No root on 442!

Android File Transfer SUCKS! Is there a no root solution for Osx? I am resorting to Parallels DeskTop-W7.

Thanks for the quick responses. This is disappointing, I saw really looking to de bloat and play with utter and touchless control. It doesn't work like I expected it to.... Looks like I'll be trading it in for a g2.

Thanks for posing the question because I was wondering the same thing. I just pulled my 1058 out and started using it again; guess I'll stick with rooted 4.4... doesn't look like i'd be gaining much anyway.
