Default Wanting to flash back to stock T-Mobile rom, while keeping root? Is this possible?

Hi guys,
I'm looking to flash back to stock, however am wanting to keep root.. I can use rsd lite, or the Moto X toolkit, however am unsure if a) it will wipe data, and b) I am able to keep root..

I remember seeing a tmo stock rom floating around in a zip file before (can't seem to find it) and am not sure if it was indeed rooted..

Can anyone help me choose which direction is best?

Thanks much!

That's as close to stock as possible, if you want the stock odex T-Mobile ROM you'll have to rsdlite the T-Mobile sbf firmware and reflash recovery and root. Are you preparing for the 4.4.2 ota?

Wait for kangakat to be updated to 4.4.2, just a little note , what I see with cm11 which is updated to 4.4.2 there's no noticeable difference
