For a while now I've been thinking about rooting and adding a custom ROM to my phone. It seems like fun and I'd like to get involved.
Recently (as in I have no idea) Cyanogenmod released a new update that doesn't require the user to root their phone in order to install CM. However rooting allows full administrative access which is something that I'd like to have. Does CM root in the process of installation or does CM by itself have enough capability and features so you don't require rooting at all? If not, do people still root their phones before installing CM?
For starters I'm running Android version 4.1.2, if that will help in anyway possible.
