Default [4.4 ROOT] [BOUNTY] New Root Method Exploit or Full Bootloader Unlock Droid Maxx

So I took the KitKat 4.4 update on my Maxx. Needless to say, I now have dissolved my primary means of internet connectivity. I have scoured the forums and I found a lot of people asking about how to root when you are already running 4.4.

I tried downgrading the firmware, using RSD Lite, but I got errors (as you cannot downgrade). Since I am now stuck with 4.4 I figured I'd make the best of it.

Not sure about the procedures on the forum, as this is my first post, but I want to have a bounty here.

I got $20.00 on the bounty for whoever roots 4.4. I know there are others asking about it here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/newr...e=1&p=49493942

MODS: As I am new to this forum, forgive me if I'm overstepping my boundaries here.

Be the first person to create or find a method to achieve the following:
Exploiting a fully stock Droid Maxx 4.4 build to get root.
Make a post in this thread with the following:
  1. Proving it works with appropriate photos and/or screenshots
  2. Providing full step-by-step instructions for which anyone else can follow
  3. Wait for at least one member to follow the same method and confirm it works the same on their fully stock device with 4.4 KitKat build
  4. Claim your bounty via PM from donator(s)

Payment will be processed between each member and the bounty collector via PM on an individual basis

I'll update this page daily as I currently only have temporary internet access

List of Donators
  1. 92029 - $20
  2. Teksu - $20
  3. Danman7- $20
  4. Dragon31337 $25 on bootloader unlock on 4.4, not for root.

Count me in for $20!
Would be sweet if we had a kickstarter type site we could submit our bounty payments, to be held until people decide to declare their ransom demands release the exploit to the public.

**Crosses fingers**

This should probably be in http://forum.xda-developers.com/droid-ultra/general though...

Does anyone have the OTA Update.Zip? Seems like I can't find it anywhere.

(Reason the this is because I have some weird rooted but not rooted version of 4.4 and need the stock 4.4 update.zip. HELP!!!)

BTW I'm pumped to the time it gets posted ^_^
