Follow this video tutorial to install ADB/USB Drivers for your device

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IEdJZGQVI4




Step 1 ] Unlock Boot Loader

Step 2 ] Root Your Device (Only when you want to root your stock firmware,if you go with custom ROM then they are usually pre rooted)

Step 3 ] Flash custom Kernel And ROM

if you are rooted,and your system is not moded any ways just update to 062 via AIR and your root will stay,then you can mod system files and apks as you like.
