    So i have a unique situation.
    I just recieved this phone asa gift/throw away/give away.
    I am planning on using it as a tablet and not much more. Its recently gotten a factory reset. That was minutes ago.
    Now i want to root it.
    Heres my questions.
    1. Do i need a custom recovery already installed?

    2 whats this lag fix i read about to root?

    3 no computer access till i get home. I wanna do it now. (not going home till tomorrow night.)
    3. Im no stranger to root. Got a prevail.

    So yeah the main one is do i needva custom recovery to do the root?
