my phone info is in the screenshots below. I was curious as to how to root my Droid DNA, but in order to do that I believe you're supposed to unlock the bootloader, which I haven't the slightest idea to do. Afterwards I plan on installing a stock 4.4 KitKat ROM. Help with rooting/unlocking bootloader?

There is a thread titled "am I too late to root" in general. Take a look there.

with the time it took to write your message why don't you just suggest a program. Try Rumrunner works very well

Rumrunner works well. http://rumrunner.us/downloads-2/ the 306 version will work. At that point, if you want the 4.4.2 ota you can accept it as long as you have a stock recovery. You will still have unlocked bootloader and s-off after it installs. Then you can flash a custom recovery (I think TWRP is what causes less problems now), and whatever rom you prefer

Because in that thread I wrote an entire step by step for someone else.
For someone that had no idea how to root, I thought that would be easier than simply suggesting a program.
