How do I go about unlocking bootloader, install a custom recovery and root the infuse? Thanks

To root, I think the easiest way is to ODIN a rooted image over top the phone (but that wipes your data). Probably the most common way is to use an exploit, via SuperOneClick:

To get CWM (if you didn't ODIN one on earlier), all you need to do is flash this in 3e recovery (didn't work for my Rogers phone, probably because it was made for AT&T).

Don't need to worry about unlocking the bootloader (isn't a bootloader to access IIRC), or to S-OFF.

Hope this helps.
Cheers,
