Default Tmobile xt1053 help on rooting

I just received an xt1053 with 4.4.3 and I can't seem to find a way to root this. Any help would be much appreciated.

Did you not read anything in the TowelPieRoot thread? The answer to why you can't get root to stick is in that thread. The answer to your question is unlock your bootloader.
