Default Rooting my Moto X on 4.4

Noob here. Is there a way to root my moto x on 4.4 kitkat without erasing everything and/or going back to 4.2?

Way more information is required to answer that.

But there are threads already...lots...covering the different ways...depending on your situation.

Sent from my Moto X cellular telephone...
Sent from my N5, N7, Moto X, GTab3 or S2.

Need help with poor battery life on the N5...or any device really? Lots of info in first 4 posts! >>>>

what variant do you have?

if it is one that we can unlocked the bootloader then yes we can root your device without wiping everything.

you can't unlock your bootloader so you would have to return to 4.2.2 camera update and use slapmymoto
