Default Towelroot

The last time I was here, we could not root 4.3 without either unlocking bootloader or root 4.2 first. Don't know if things have changed since then? Now there is a new rooting app exploiting a newly discovered vulnerability and I wonder if it would work with the Xperia M on 4.3.. anyone tried it out yet?
Phones:
LG GW300 -> Javaphone without touch
Dell Streak 5 (DSC 2.3) -> The original Phablet
Sony Xperia M (Stock)
Cubot X6 (Stock, fck mediatek)

Tablets:
B&N Nook HD+ (CM10.2)

I tried to root 4.3 using towel root but when I try to root using the app and I click the button in it the app just hangs and after 4-5 seconds it fc's! I don't think it supports our device yet but no problem we have many other root methods.

It works!
But only half root.
You won't be able to use apps like foldermount.

Fix by nut does not work, after applying it my phone still restarts!
