I tend to root with new recovery, cuts down on problems later.... Is the fact you have no root connected to the fact it wasn't rooted or because the rom wasn't rooted right?
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....
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?
