I have just freshly rooted mine, and from what I have learned, no. You cannot. You have to bypass the write protection BEFORE updating to 4.4. You root 4.2.2, (12.15.15) bypass the write protection, then reflash 4.2.2 (12.15.15) the write protection stays bypassed, then you run some commands, update ota to kitkat, then run some adb shell commands, and you're rooted.
