once you get root, how do you go about getting a custom recovery installed so you can install a custom ROM?

Will using the flash tool method also reset the root counter in download mode and show it as "unrooted"?

Thanks

What variant do you have? What android version are you running?

Is it possible to root without installing a custom recovery?

This way I could still get OTAS and install them, right?

I read it doesn't.

Are people sure the unroot message can be undone?

I read that if you're on KitKat you can't.

You can root using my methods without installing a custom recovery.
