Can someone make a detailed and noob friendly guide about rooting ?
Personally I'm confused with this guide : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2646904

Thanks

Because that guide requires you to:
1: Downgrade back to 4.1.2 via this link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2658952
2: Root it via this tutorial: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2440375
3: Install this recovery:http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2649923
4: Install this ROM: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2780836


That guide is very confusing for new users

Thank you very much.
The only phone I rooted was X8, so now everything looks new.

Do I lose DRM keys by downgrading?
