Okay so I unlocked my bootloader using the toolkit but I dont want to flash a custom recovery, I like the stock one. Is there anyway I can root it using the stock recover?

You can do a temporary recovery image boot.

You must know fastboot commands and must download a recovery image and a super SU zip.

1. Boot into bootloader
2. Fastboot boot recovery.img
3. Once in recovery, MAKE A BACKUP
4. Install
5. Reboot
6. Check root once rebooted

You will retain your stock recovery, and your backup will be of the stock system. This will also not give you a tampered flag, at least in my experience
