Sorry still a new to all this
Yes you can, I did the same yesterday.
Rooted one is for unlocked bootloader.
Your apps and settings will be there as long as you uncheck wipe user data.
I also got one question: After updating to CE1 Generic at least one app specific to my provider is still installed and not removable. Do I have to wipe the user data for this to go away (I don't mind it so I won't do it, just curious)?
