You can't be on 4.4.2 with a locked bootloader, rooted with write protection disabled. If you are, you're the first and only one on here.
I think we're miscommunicating a bit.
I am sure what you have is root.....with write protection enabled. As is the issue with 4.4.2. Meaning, if you hard reboot, you lose all root changes. Correct?
But no, you don't need to do anything to unlock the bootloader. Your phone will be wiped during the process. You'll have to flash custom recovery and root after. Then install all your apps again.
