There will always be a stock rooted version of any release. Someone always cooks one up.

Chances are, there will be a root exploit for the new 4.4 update. But ultimately, we'll just have to wait and see.

As I'm sure you're aware if you've looked through the Dev section, there are plenty of 4.4 ROM's already available for the G2. You may want to look into some of those for the time being to hold you over until the official 4.4 release.
Current Device: LG G2 (vs980) | ROM: Stock Rooted 4.4.2

Great thanks but the update i was referring too is the "Spark" update to enable the Spark icons and extra bands for LTE!

Does Sprint even take the time to patch root exploits?

Kidding. However, from everything I've read, Sprint doesn't seem to be bothered with root exploits on their devices. But someone with actual Sprint experience would likely know better than I.
