No direct rooting.

You can however read some threads and follow this advice


1) Downgrade to a FTF ending in .534 (Find it in the mega collection thread, the OP there has all the instructions needed)

2) Install dual recovery (Find it in the cross device development thread, the OP there has all the instructions needed)

3) Flash SuperSU.zip from chainfire (Google supersu chainfire)

4) Flash a 4.4.2 ROM of your choice. (Find them in the development section, the OP there has all the instructions needed)


4 easy steps to get root. No need to back up TA, no need to unlock the bootloader.
