Why?

You already have 3 custom recoveries if you are on the latest dual recovery.


Also, to get recovery you only need root, which you must already have so there is no need to unlock the boot

If you are unsure, then read this.

If you want a custom KERNEL then yes you need to unlock the bootloader, and NO it wont remove root because the whole basic point of a custom kernel is an easy way to get root.

Remember that you will lose all data when you unlock so back everything up.
