I was going to try custom Roms but i don't understand how this bootstrapping works. So I bootstrap recovery and install Rom Manger and CWR but from there is there anything special i need to do before i flash a custom rom? After i did those steps i got a lot of force closes on miui, tried to flash CM9 over miui and that messed it up it ,seams some stuff from miui was left over even thoou i did wipe data/factory reset. Do i need to bootstrap every time i flash another Rom or idk?

all bootstrap does is get you to cwm
if you can get to clockworkmod bootstrap did it's job
what system version are you using?
4.5.629, most roms are not going to work with that yet
read some guides, there are some in my collection of links

I don't think this is correct—any ROM that works after flashing over 4.5.608 should still work flashed over 4.5.629.
