Default Root for FTF 4.3 Update 15.4.A.0.23 LOCKED BOOTLOADER

I believe it's useful for sake of clarity to concentrate in a single TD the search of the rooting method for the new firmaware JB 4.3 and its detailed explanation.

So far I have seen this post http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...3&postcount=38 from gamer649 mentioning the methods NOT working
this post http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...4&postcount=48 from rsrishabh suggesting another method (anyone with a follow-up ?)
and finally this post http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...0&postcount=99 claiming an easy method; StraightEdgeKid, could you please elaborate your method here ?

My apologies and please disregard this thread that I have erroneously originated !!!!!!!

Umm, not really. At this point many many of us are hoping for a root method that doesn't involve screwing around with the bootloader. So your post and question is quite pertinent

I believe the point andyxoxo is making has a lot of sense: haresh311999's methods works only with unlocked bootloaders. People who cannot unlock bootloaders or doesn't want (myself), doesn't have a working rooting tool/method. Let's write in this thread our effort (I changed the title accordingly).

So far among the known methods only what rsrishabh is suggesting has to be tested.

I've tested kingo root once but it didn't work (or maybe I didn't give it time to complete). I'm gonna try again now.
