Great advice here so far. Just to give an actual explanation: first you need to unlock the bootloader using a computer, which will factory reset the phone. Then you can flash a custom recovery that will let you either flash a .zip to obtain root permissions on your stock ROM or to flash a custom ROM. ALWAYS ALWAYS MAKE A BACKUP AS SOON AS YOU FIRST FLASH THE CUSTOM RECOVERY to make sure you can more easily return to stock. Feel free to PM me for further instructions and clarifications.
