Not after, before, but it's not a necessity unless you're installing additional systems for multi-booting.

Just to piggy back this question.
One rom installing guide told that i have to manually create the system 3 partition.
But my rooted BMM is showing system 1-6. are these just dummy entries or do the partitions exist already?

They're just dummy entries. You only need to create additional partitions if you intend to use them. Creating additional will leave you with less room for apps, etc on system 1 so don't do that step unless you're multi booting.

1. did you used/remove bootstrap files before install BMM?

2. did you made any changes to recovery.fstab file from etc/bmm/conf?
you suppose to change /int vfat /dev/block/mmcblk1p25 to /int auto /dev/block/userdata

When installing a ROM by formatting /system, BMM is removed from system partition. To get it back for next boot you have to go to system keeper option in recovery and install BMM again.
I had to go to back to ICS twice when I made this mistake. Hope you don't make the same mistake next time.

Cheeers!

I tried again this time flashing the rom first then rebooting. Rom loaded up nice with BMM already installed. However, when I went back to recovery to flash the gapps I got a boot loop.
