Seeing as you're a beginner, I'd recommend using CF Root. You flash it via Odin as a kernel, you get root, clockworkmod mod and it's simple!

thanks for the reply mate, i really just want to ROM it for the simple purpose that is getting a new ui/interface/feel to the phone haha. something flashy, or better battery's worth.

but cheers dude i will do that until i get a firmer understanding.

but just dont understand what kernal to use , the one that comes with it, or do i need to get one to match mine?

Kernel as per the instructions .
Custom rom as per the instructions .
Rooting custom roms or custom rom counter above zero will void your warranty .



Root + CWM .

Thanks dudes i actually understand now that putting roms on and kernals etc, that's just rooting i thought to root was another process all together.

but it's just like saying MOdding i guess.

Some questions i have are, Are roms Kernal specific. EG
could i soft brick if i just used CFkernal. then flashed a rom afterwards?

It is you need to read the faqs and guides .
Rooting is rooting and not putting roms and kernels on.

Yes but unlikely but in your case more probable as you have failed to understand the very very basics .

Root using CWM and root and flash a custom rom afterwards via CWM is the normal route .

FAQS and GUIDES all in the sticky.
