and what if you have the T-Mobile Moto X, haven't got the email to unlock bootloader and you can't get adb to recognize device?

Well, if you don't have an unlocked bootloader, SlapMyMoto (which now incorporates the MotoWpNoMo process into its steps) is the only way (there have been some efforts to consolidate/automate the process). And may not be usable if you're already on 4.4.2 (taking the 4.4.2 OTA update or flashing the full 4.4.2 SBF prevents you from flashing older ROMs which is a crucial step in using SlapMyMoto).

I've not see a 4.4.2 specific root process for locked bootloaders yet, but to be honest, I have a unlocked bootloader, so I haven't been completely paying attention.

If you have an unlocked bootloader, root process is still the same.

there is not going to be any new way to root 4.4 is not going to get a new exploit because 4.4.2 is out and Devs are working on finding a way to root it so the people with locked bootloaders can update.

if you want to root your device you have allready been giving the only 2 ways to do it

Locked bootloader - SlapMyMoto
Unlocked bootloader - Customer Recovery and SUPERSU

please dont bump your thread for info you allready have.

here is a link to both guides for both methods and a guide for unlocking your bootloader.
