1. Do I need to formally "root" the phone using SuperOneClick v2.1.1 before I flash ClockworkMod recovery?
2. Will just flashing CWM also take care of rooting, or do I need to formally root first?
Thank you for taking a moment to answer these questions. I am extremely grateful.
1. With this phone, and most Samsung phones, NO. you do not need to root to flash cwm. You simply flash a TAR file in ODIN.
2. No, flashing CWM does NOT root your phone. It's totally separate.
If you want to get on a prerooted deodexed debloated rom, follow this guide that I made.
[GUIDE] Rooting your phone via a ROM
That will take you through all of the steps, and put you on the ROM that I am on, currently.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask here, or PM me.
I would also advise reading through this forum, and any others you can find, to learn as much as you can BEFORE doing this. Knowledge is your best friend.
