Default Rooting with OTA 4.4.2

Hi All,

There does not seem to be a clear yes or no on this, so figured I'd ask. Got the phone off eBay and came with the OTA 4.4.2 update. I'd like to root to get rid of some bloat and try some xposed modules.

Question is if it's possible to root with the OTA 4.4.2 update?

I've seen RDLV, and it seems to require linux or an untested windows compiled .exe file which I'm not too comfortable with....

Any other methods?

Thanks
