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

I think so.
But Towelroot is a good one to try and of course Framaroot.
Try them all and you will see hopefully a good result @simon_lefisch

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.
