Hey guys, has anybody achieved root on the spanking new XT1052 the European variant of the Moto X?

I tried getting the bootloader unlocked from Moto support site and apparently the device was not up for bootloader unlocking.. Bumer

Would the XT1053 root methods work? I'm a semi Noob so I'd rather ask before I do something stupid.

Thanks in advance people.

I believe that phone shipped with version 4.4.2, which means the only way to gain root(at this time) is by unlocking the bootloader.

Once you unlock the bootloader how do you gain root?

I had no problems unlocking my XT1052. Are you sure you put the string together correctly?

Flash a custom recovery (TWRP or CWM) via fastboot and then flash SuperSu zip. There are numerous guides how to do this exactly.

I checked the info thread but it didn't say if the process worked for 4.4.2, I found out once bootloader is unlocked you can flash as needed. Thanks for the response!

All the guides about installing custom recovery after unlocking the bootloader posted here are for 4.4. Are they applicable to 4.4.2 also?
