Will MotoWPoff survive the OTA? The thread says

This exploit is permanent in the sense it will survive factory resets, reflashing the device, etc. However, like with any exploit, you should not expect it to survive OTA's or other updates.

Either it did, or KK allows WP toggle for rooted users. Not quite smart to know why. I can tell you what I did, but I can't tell you what happened or why it works.

I have an unlocked bootloader. I haven't gotten update yet. Losing patience. I got the email last night saying it would push this morning. Still waiting

I am in the same situation, very curious on where to go from here to achieve root on 4.4. I have yet to get the update, but would like to be prepared.

Thank you.
