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...
