3. flash TWRP recovery with flashtools
4. reboot the Phone and install magisk manager app (link https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/topjohnwu/magisk-manager/)
5. start magisk manager , it will tell you that your phone has root
6. go to playstore and download the app called reboot recovery ( its a very small app)
7. reboot to recovery.
8. done
9. Now you have twrp and you are able to flash zips or custom roms

For better and more versatile management, I recommend ROM Manager from ClockWorkMod

You only need the boot.img if you are not rooted. Because if you flash twrp s8 how would you boot into it?
Hardkeys don't work. So you need to be rooted and download an advanced power menu from playstore like "reboot recovery" to boot into it

If I'm rooted and I'm using dragon ROM v2.0, do I just boot into recovery and flash the zips?

Yes .
After you flashed the recovery via flashtools
You can reboot to recovery and flash the rom.zip v2.2 of eragon.

You enter the test mode with that.
We don't have a solution ATM to enter in recovery mode.
So you have to flash the patched boot.img etc..
