I see there is talk about the guy who made the towel root working for google now so there is no way of getting an updated towel root. Anyone have any ideas?

Yes you can root it. I just used this method from @muniz_ri yesterday, and it works perfectly...

Locked bootloader prevents changing SE linux to permissive.
