How to: Root the Moto X for Verizon, US Cellular, Sprint, Rogers, and AT&T
As it turns out, not only can you root the Motorola DROID MAXX, Ultra, and Mini, but the same developer over on XDA Forums has a similar rooting method that will work the Motorola Moto X.

It is pretty much the same process, and will work with the Verizon, US Cellular, Sprint, Rogers, and AT&T versions of the Moto X.

Now you should be aware that you will need some knowledge of using the ADB Shell, so if you aren't comfortable with that, you may want to hold off. But other than that, it is a pretty easy process.

Here are the instructions, as provided by "jcase". And at always, use at your own risk.
