Default Question about rooting.

Hi everyone!

I just rooted my phone with IOroot following this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...9#post45692679 . I was just wondering if that process unlocked my bootloader? If not, do I need to unlock it to flash CyanogenMod?

Thanks

No And no. Just install a custom recovery and flash cm

I have ROM manager on my device. Will ClockWorkRecovery work fine or should I use TWRP?

Do not use rom manager. It doesn't work on this phone, or any phone in my opinion 😄. Download flashify or freegee. To install a recovery, that you will need to download
