Default Root and cwm

I want to root my Ace2 i8160 on 4.1.2 but don't i have to flash CWM recovery first?

If so, can you please point me a proper thread containing a good and stable cwm/a good and safe tutorial?
Thanks

No matter.
Edit: for the cwm, search on google "temporary cwm for galaxy ace2".

Ok,thanks, managed to finally root. But what's the thing with CWM temporary? Do I have to install it every time I want to use it?

Yep. But if you install cyanogen or some other custom rom you will have permanent one.
