Sorry I'm pretty slow when it comes to this stuff.
use WIndroid or Hasoon2000's toolkit. But to be frank, the toolkits don't do anything you can't accomplish yourself "manually".
Now if the question is did I
specifically use a toolkit to root, the answer would be NO.
Using a toolkit robs you of a valuable learning experience, and therefore I don't personally recommend it. Without learning how to use the various tools and processes, you are ill equipped to troubleshoot or self-recover if/when things go south when modding the phone.
A similar question folks like to ask is "what is the easiest/fastest
way to root" when in fact they should be asking "what is the best
way". My answer to the latter question would be to do the steps manually: unlock bootloader, install custom recovery, and either flash SU/SuperSU or flash a rooted ROM.
