1 unlock the bootloader if it isn't already unlocked, this will wipe your device so make sure you backup

2 fastboot flash recovery recovery.img where recovery.img is a twrp or cwm recovery image file

3 copy supersu.zip to your phone and flash it in recovery

Use Google to find image files and supersu.zip

Very easy
