on that forum i can only find that if you are on jb then you have to go through the bootloader to get root, is there any other option? i do not wish to unlock my device just yet and i know you don't need to for rooting so is there anyway to do it for jelly bean without unlocking it?
You can downgrade to the .30 ICS version, root the device using for example the debugfs method, use OTA Rootkeeper, upgrade to JB again and restore your root with OTA Rootkeeper. It doesn't seem to be working for everybody, but I believe that's the only way to do it without unlocking the bootloader.
