Lightbulb [Q] Root via cwm?

Guys is it possible to root after you've isntalled cwm? like for example once you're in CWM and you reboot your phone via cwm it asks if you want to root? If I select yes will it actually root? or can we flash SuperSu.zip to root?

Yes it will root, but you have to download the supersu app from google play store,or you can just flash supersu.zip, but this will be the same.
