Default [Q] Verizon M8 Unlock/Root?

Does anyone have any information on the ability to unlock/root the Verizon M8? I tried sorting through the information on the One (2013), but I can't really get a good read on the capability of unlocking/rooting a Verizon M7 on 4.4.2.

Exactly. I switched to Google Launcher within an hour of trying blinkfeed.

I need root in order to run Elixir and some other things as system apps.

You'll have to wait for the root, it will be out very soon though...

Are you talking about blinkfeed or the actual launcher? I hate the launcher but love blinkfeed.
