Thank you in advance!
However, the Moto X DOES have root on 4.4. It's a complicated process that involves downgrading to 4.2, installing a backdoor, and upgrading again to 4.4, then using the backdoor to regain root access. However, as the Droid Maxx/Ultra/Mini have locked bootloaders, it is not possible to downgrade after accepting the OTA upgrade to KitKat 4.4,
I am one among those few lucky people who got code and unlocked the BL and enjoying root now in 4.4.
@JumnhyI want to add only one extra info to make things more clear. Actually BigRed's Moto X is also coming with locked / encrypted BootLoaders like DroidMini/Maxx/Ultra, but since its 4.4 update came first and without signature verification / check and hence downgrading was possible in its case. But in 4.4 of Droid series, the mistake was corrected and downgrade was IMPOSSIBLE.
So Droid users with 4.4 and NO root has to live without root in the future, unless any wonder occurs (like the earlier code purchase).
Moral of the Story:
If you want root access in Droid or other BigRed's phones, buy their Dev edition in future.
Do you mind sort of breaking down the process you did once you got the code and how the code was styled. Alpha-numeric? 10 digits? Things like that. I am considering that since there is a code and method for unlocking the device in an offline setting, that could be bruteforced using strong hardware GPU. (Which I tend to have these days thanks to virtual currencies.)
I am going to run on the assumption Motorola won't lock out a user for multiple incorrect attempts but who knows.
