Question: Where does galaxyupdater come into play? I assume the guide is rooting my phone and i have the option of finishing it or using the updater?
When using this method, rooting is synonym of installing the custom recovery (the special mode when you hold specific keys to boot into recovery mode). In that new menu, you can "apply" updates, aka ROMs. As soon as you are rooted (have the recovery), you could use the application, but you decide if it is worth it or not.
