Default New M8 user, not sure where to start on installing a custom ROM.

There is unlocking bootloader, rooting, SuperCID, flashing CWM recovering and installing a customROM (ViperOne) on my new device, M8.

I'm completely capable of understanding and following the guides, but I'm just not sure the order I should be following to achieve all those.

Could you please guide me with the correct order?

Root using weaksauce first. Then use firewater to get s-off and unlock the bootloader. Then flash any of the recoveries in development (I like philz) using fastboot. Then boot to recovery, do a backup and flash your rom of choice. I don't see a need to use supercid unless your rom requires it.
