Default Rooting the Verizon Prepaid Moto G.

From my research it seems as if this phone can't be rooted because you cannot unlock the bootloader.

Has anyone tried "Poot to Root" on the Verizon Prepaid Moto G? I don't need an Unlocked Bootloader, just Root access.

I rooted my Kyocera Event (with a locked bootloader) in less than a minute using Poot. From what I have read, Poot to Root is made for Qualcomm phones, and the Moto G is Qualcomm.

So, has anyone tried this yet? Does it work?

Right now this is the only working method to unlock the bootloader.

It costs money, and there's no other known way to root the Verizon Moto G
