Default Questions Before Rooting

Hi, I've had my G2 for a couple weeks now and I absolutely love it. The only thing is that I've gotten so sick of the loads of bloatware and useless junk that I've decided to root it. I've rooted 3 or 4 phones before and the methods for the G2 seem just about as easy as it gets. I found 2 guides, one for actually rooting and one for installing TWRP recovery. I was just wondering if it matters what order I do this in, and also whether or not these guides are all I need to get my phone all ready to flash roms and all that other fun stuff. I've included the links to the videos below. Thanks in advance

Yes I know about this thread. But in regards to installing TWRP, should I do this before or after rooting the phone?

After you root, follow the link to ioroot19, you should be able to simple use freegee to install twrp.
