Very helpful, thanks for taking time to make these. Just so I'm 100%, the order for a new out of the box phone would be following the instructions in the first video (perm root and cwm) followed by the instructions in the 3rd (S-Off via FireWater)? Thanks again.

Actually you would want to Temp Root via WeakSauce, Then S-Off with Firewater, then install recovery and permanent root.
