Just a comment to add and perhaps confuse others.
I have used House of Moto to upgrade from 4.1.2 to 4.4.2 last month.
My bootloader was unlocked previously and the phone was rooted as well.
After upgrading to 4.4.2, the bootloader warning disappeared and never came back. Samurai indicated that Motorola has changed something and so the warning no longer appears. I actually like this change.

The root - well I am not sure if it is still there, but as long as bootloader is unlocked I have control.

Oh, they changed a lot more than just the logo for unlocked phones. They actually put the bootloader unlock exploit that Dan found last year back in the 4.4.2 upgrade. So, there has been a flurry of activity from Sam trying to get everyone with locked bootloaders to unlock, because this is a gift from the Moto Gods, albeit a gift they didn't mean to give!

Yup!

You are unlocked and free. Have at it, but there aren't any custom ROMs other than the nightlies for CM11 that I know of. But, at least you don't have to have an exploit to root anymore. Just sideload it via ADB and you're good to go from here until the end of life for your phone.

Welcome to the unlocked world. You won't regret it.
