Followed the instructions.

When I go to press "Boot into Bootloader" it does nothing....
I'm getting scared and about to chicken out lol.....

The guide is awesome, but I got stuck so early on!!!

Well I'm to the very end of the guide and I can't get the "Unlock Bootloader Screen" to load....(Step 6)
I got the token.....I copied it to the directory of the tool kit.....it says "Lock Code Flashed" but nothing else.....
Phone is still highlighted pink as "Locked".......

I followed along with the video but it seems like my phone isn't responding.....It's just on the fastboot screen.
Am I missing something...?
Really want to root and put a custom ROM but this seems a bit much for my Noob Self

I got the Unlock Bootloader Thing Done....
Now the next Step is to "Perm Root" and push SuperSU.zip to your phone......
I pushed that button on the tool kit.....The Command Window Pops up but it doesn't do it......
I think I need to do this step before I flash the recovery....Correct?

Thanks for any help!!!!

Is it too late to go back and do that?
All I know is that I have the boot unloader unlocked and I'm getting stuck on the last parts of the tool kit.....

I downloaded ViperXL Rom and it's currently on my SD Storage....
My phone is still stock but I don't want to brick it......

Am I heading in the right direction?

Does TWRP backup also save/backup the kernel?

Last time when i restored via TWRP backup it was still the 'wrong' kernel. Means, not that kernel which should be included in the TWRP backup...

Is it possible to root without wiping data? Because before I want to change to custom ROM, I wanted to backup all my data and Titanium Backup requires root access.

"root" has nothing to do with changing to a custom ROM. You have to unlock the bootloader and within this procedure, all data will be lost.
After that, you have to flash a custom-recovery and then you are able to flash a custom-ROM (which is usually already rooted).

Reason I wanted to root was because I want to backup all my app data using Titanium Backup (root required) before flashing a custom rom since I do not want to lose all the game progress.

Thanks mate! Finished backing up everything. This is a really useful app. Guess I'll just go straight to flashing a custom rom.
