I use cf-autoroot, about 10 secs to flash and that includes opening odin, selecting file, putting phone in download mode and hitting start.... Heck, in the time it took me to type this I could've rooted 2 phones....

I did not get anything you said here: "Is the fact you have no root connected to the fact it wasn't rooted or because the rom wasn't rooted right?"
Haha, But I think I understand after reading 10 times xD. I don't have ROOT nor any Custom ROM. But wanted to know do I need to have ROOT in order to flash Custom ROM?
Also in the recovery mode, TWRP asks me to install SuperSU or something like that. Should I allow it? Would it be safe?

Sorry long day with little sleep. If TWRP is asking to install Super SU then it will root for you, let it...

Wow, that sucks. I'm sure you have rights for Easter Holidays though, and bank holidays?
