Default Root and CWM help

-> Oma

I bought my NX785QC8G with 4.4.2 running on it. Would like to keep close to stock, so future OTA updates will work.
Really pleased with it, but would like root access to remove some unneeded apps from system folder. Also would like a CWM recovery for backups, and to use some apps that require root (like sEFix).

Sadly, haven't found a root tool that works on stock 4.4.2.

Any chance you could provide a root method to flash as an update.img (or easier yet an apk to download and install to gain root).
If root is obtained, maybe can install CWM through Arctools ?

This might be too much help to ask for, but would appreciate your assistance and/or guidance.

Thank you so much for your support of this tablet to date!!!

What would be the quickest way to get back to stock on this device? Is there an image I can use with the RKTool? Searching is not turning up anything useful. Thanks in advance!

MoboRobo (for drivers) then Kingo Android Root woked for me in getting the device initially rooted.
