Default [Q] If I unlock my Sprint Moto X, I can just root by pushing TWRP and SuperSU?

I have a locked Moto X 4.2.2 (latest camera patch).
I used RockMyMoto to root it and it worked fine.

But now I want to goto KitKat..

From what I think I've read, I could take one of two options

1. Go through the SlapMyMoto process to update to 4.4 Kitkat and stay locked
- This keeps stock recovery and root I think?

OR

2. Unlock my phone officially and just push TWRP and SuperSU with adb/fastboot and I'm done?

Is that right? Is it really that simple to root when you are unlocked? I don't give 2 flips about voiding my warranty

The conversation here is regarding unlocking the phone's bootloader, not unlocking the carrier...
