Done, 3 easy steps
So i can flash any rom now with that recovery? Even if my bootloader is still unlocked? Or only stock based roms?

If your bootloader is unlocked you can flash any rom from the development sections or the original development section

But if your bootloader is unlocked you do not need to do any of this to root.
Just flash DooMKerneL or [NUT]s XZDR kernel


If your bootloader is locked, you have to downgrade and root that way. Then you can flash any stock based rom, look in the development section for them

If you are still unsure, watch this.

Oops. Im sorry. I meant locked. Was doing something else and wrote that fast. Thanks for the answer. Will check. Got the DualRecovery installed now and will try to install a prerooted .757 later.
