Ok, so I've upgraded to 4.3 and lost my root. As far as I know, to get root on 4.3 I will need unlocked bootloader to flash custom kernel and/or ROM.

Have my device rooted and running a rooted rom. Would like to unlock my bootloader so I can run a couple roms I saw on xda developers including an updated rom by beans but they need to have the bootloader unblocked. The instrucions and video on xda seem too complicated. Is there a simpler way or should I wait for one to come?
