Default [Q] Brand new Razr HD Maxx, unlock bootloader?

I'm really sorry if this question has been asked and answered before.
I bought a brand new Razr HD Maxx that has been sitting in the box since last year off eBay.
I'm not sure what version of firmware the system is running but I'm assuming it is an old, old release since its still on ICS. See pics.

I am want to root and unlock bootloader to put some KitKat ROMs on here, but I'm not sure how to do so. I know some Motorola firmware versions permalock the bootloader...is this the case with my device? Which piece of software do I use?

I'm still new to the rooting/unlocking/modding aspect of Android (moving from Windows Phone) and your expert help is much appreciated! Thanks in advance for your replies!

Most probably you are lucky to have unlockable booloader, just don't accept OTA. Search forum how to unlock, wait for answer from someone who did, read, read, read and understand before you try! Also start with full charged battery!
Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD unlocked with optimized CM11
LG G Pad 8.3 unlocked with LINARO/SABERMOD CyanogenMod 11
Motorola Atrix 4G (AT&T) unlocked with (MROM CM7) CM9 with Polish(ed) 3.1.10 kernel
Nexus 7 unlocked with CM11 my own build

You are very lucky to have found that phone.

Do NOT apply ANY OTA's, they will patch the boot loader unlock exploit.
