Oh my gosh, thank you!!! These "phone forums" are freaking impossible to understand. Are "phone people" not computer people? I'm starting to think that. Anyway, THANKS!

See the youtube clip below for a walk through on installing a custom recovery through adb. I would suggest using either the latest beta twrp (see link to CM11 thread below), cwm 126.96.36.199, or the new advanced cwm. These all work with 4.4 based ROMs.

Note: When I rooted my first Droid DNA (and subsequent phones) it WIPED the OS....and you had to install a new one. It appears, with this method, I now have S-off AND root....and nothing got deleted.
Just wanted to mention that in case anyone else was wondering.

XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers. It is now a valuable resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. Are you a developer?
