Default [Q] Rooting & Installing Custom ROM on W8

Hi Guys,

I am very new in the Android's stuffs so i want to confirm something here.

I have read a thread in the X8 general discussion,

Saying that X8 and W8 is basically the same phone where SE just slapped a "walkman" logo on X8 and called it a W8.

So my question is this,

Can i root, install recovery, and install custom ROM (like froyobread or GingerDX) using the same softwares found on this thread which is meant for X8 ?

Please let me know guys as i am afraid if i get a W8 and i could install custom ROM on it...
