    I don't believe it possible. There is nothing in the usual places, sorry

    Hi welcome to AC!

    The best place you want to get that info would be XDA Forums, that's what they do there , now since this will be your first time trying this , also learn how to go back to stock firmware in case custom Rom breaks anything. Be aware of Wich ROM you install as could be with bugs and it's up to the developer to send updates if they want to fix certain things . Me personally would root just to add features not to change stick firmware but then makes you device varunable to hack or security threats , and expect Google pay not to work rooted .
    me just saying likes this.

    Magisk is the best root method, period. No apps do it, you do it.

    Unlocking the bootloader - https://www.hardreset.info/devices/l...loader-unlock/

    Magisk - Magisk - Root & Universal Systemless Interface [Android 5.0+]

    (There doesn't appear to be a TWRP for the K40 yet, so you'll probably have to flash Magisk through recovery.)

    And be aware - unlocking the bootloader wipes the phone, so back everything up first! (See Backing up an Android Device)
