is this correct?

1. flash stock .254
2. root stock 254
3. backup TA
4. unlock bootloader (.254)
5. flash .266 (with unlocked bl)
6. root .266 (using doomlord's method)
7. restore drm keys from .254 (wc will also relock bl)

thanks. badly need root for .266 -_-

That should do fine, but at step 7 you should also flash the stock kernel back, failing to do so will end up in a (recoverable) softbrick.

Unless you have a vendor build (the 6 on the end of your model number usually gives that away), there should not even be a very big difference. Baseband should be the same and the ROM is generic by nature. Only some customization differences which mean some more or less apps.

In your current ROM you can find your build.prop, use that to find out your own customization and use this guide to help yourself build your own FTF.

Good luck
