I have read several threads here and suspect what I want to do may not be possible.
I have just purchased an M2 running KK 4.4.4 with a locked bootloader. It says it cannot be unlocked. Does this mean I am unable to root?
I saw a thread about downgrading to 4.3 JB but can I do this with a locked bootloader?


Thanks in advance

Yes, you can flash ftf's with locked bootloader. Just read whole tread about root with locked bootloader and you be fine.
Good Luck

Getting there :)
Thanks for this. Followed it to the letter. Root checker says I am rooted at 4.4.4. I can install ES file explorer and grant root permissions.
But I am unable to make any changes that require roor (for example set folders to R/W to delete unwanted APK's).
I have Super SU 2.40 from these forums (it does try to update and failes still), what have I missed?

Thumbs up Solved
Please disregard my previous post. I missed the thread about installing SuperSU into system. This is now done

Thanks for the help.
