I attempted Towelroot on my D950 (AT&T) using 4.4.2 and it said my device is not supported. Severely saddened.

It's an app with 1 button... how could I have possibly done something wrong? Are you Android 4.4.2 with build build version 20f?

You probably had build version 20b, then rooted, then upgraded to 20f. Which works just fine. So to anyone reading this, you cannot use towelroot if you have version D95020f. You have to downgrade to an earlier version, then root, then upgrade.

All I'm saying is towelroot wouldn't work on 20f without being rooted beforehand. Being rooted at 20b probably allowed towelroot to work on 20f.
