You mean to eventually pay for the unauthorized unlock & in the mean time be on 442. No problem but one, the Guy who has the codes may not last as long as your warranty!

Android File Transfer SUCKS! Is there a no root solution for Osx? I am resorting to Parallels DeskTop-W7.

Yes, you can update to 4.4.2... and unlock anytime you wish.
Sent from my new HTC One M8, N5, N7, Moto X, GTab3 or S2.

Need help with poor battery life on the N5...or any device really? Lots of info in first 4 posts! >>>>

As long as you are sure you can get the unlock code from Moto directly, you can unlock the bootloader when you are ready. Once you do unlock, you can root any version rom that is on your phone.

Just keep in mind, if you want to root & disable write protection BEFORE you are ready to unlock the bootloader, the only options are SlapMyMoto/MotoWpNoMo which do NOT work with Android 4.4.2. (i.e. if you want root without unlocking bootloader, do not upgrade to 4.4.2).
