Default [Q] New Z1 owner... Confused.

First of all I hate making these types of threads as I do search before asking ALL the time.

However, this is my first Z1, and their are SOO many software versions/firmwares that I have become a little overwhelmed ( I am used to Samsungs, Nexus and LG)

I want to root my Z1, put a custom recovery on and install a ROM,

But I am confused whether I can root my firmware or not, and if not, what firmware to downgrade too.

My Firmware is (Just got OTA for it not long ago)

Any help is appreciated!

Top reliable phones I have had: HTC One. LG G2, Nexus 4, Note 2, Nokia 5800, Motorola RAZR V3X, Motorola RAZR i, Nexus 5 Had many more, but these devices were the best IMO.

Current Phone: HTC One M8

Press THANKS if i helped you, it's nice knowing when you have helped somebody out

Pick any rom for LB and instructions will be there. I chose monxdfied. Installation guide is pretty clear.
