Hi developers!
This might be a nooby question, but do I need to enable USB debugging before I root my SGS3 with Chainfire's CF-auto-root?
I see some people saying you need to but other say it doesn't matter. Same goes for Unknown Sources (to install apk's for example). Is it better to do this?

Go to setting/developer options and click android debugging

For unknown sources go to settings/security and. Click unknown sources

Uhhmm maybe I haven't been clear enough, but I know how to perform these changes, but asking if I should DO it, before rooting.
Thanks for the reply though

Doing it won't harm anything. And it's better to keep them on. Especially debugging, it's useful if you mess up and need to do stuff with adb.

Life!
