Right ... stop ... and breathe...

The above is a bit confusing and I can't follow you. You are interchanging root and unlock - they are 2 different things.

a) Are you unlocked? Yes then it's very easy to obtain root.
b) If you want root and are locked then the ONLY way to do it is to follow the instructions in the general forum - sticky thread to downgrade to ICS .30 and then do incremental OTA updates to JB .25 using OTA root keeper from the play store.

Just realised you posted the same question twice....
