Follow directions, do NOT flash this image. Flashing the image will bootloop you (easily fixed by flashing proper boot.img). You must only BOOT this image. Again DO NOT FLASH IT, I won't help you out of any mess you get yourself into with this.

Unlock your device with Motorola's site
Boot Image
Device will boot up, install su and quickly reboot.
Then install Chainfire's SuperSU from the Play Store

unzip pure2014sb.zip
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot boot pure2014sb.img

Does this wipe your phone data at all? My phone data was completely wiped when I unlocked the bootloader, so I want to make sure that doesn't happen again.
