This one is easiest and safest and reliable way to root with locked bootloader. And you know what it works with unlocked bootloader too.
Follow each step very carefully.

No I don't think so. I think it'll just reboot after you've rooted.

And yeah strictly follow these settings:

1.Security > Unknown Sources(tick) and Verify Apps(untick)
2.USB debugging (tick)


Because when unkown sources is not ticked the SuperSU app is not pushed through ADB
