Root help!

    I'm sure there's one out there, but I wanted to post this for my own sake and anyone after me. This is my first high-end phone and I want to root it (also first time rooting). So, because I'm scared of bricking because I have no experience and don't know what to trust, I need your help.

    I need the most dumbed down, detailed to a point, step-by-step, incremental, guaranteed way to do it. Notice i didn't say "simple". I do know a little about computers, but not enough to understand everything all the guides say. So just a step-by-step tutorial to unlock the bootloader and flash a custom recovery. Basic root.

    Thanks in advance!

    People are so afraid of rooting :(

    As long as you have a moat, a full suit of armor , a small army consisting of men willing to fight and die in your honor you should be safe from the evil root monster. You will however be sacrificing your first born son to keep the root monster happy.

    Annnnnnd I knew that was coming. People seem to think that other people (or at least me) haven't looked or hit that search button. You realize the post is designed for people to post how THEY think is the most detailed way, right? It's more of a "what's your opinion?" kinda thing.

    Pretty sure this is a sticky.. this is the most "dumbed down" you will get, without paying someone to come to your house and hold your hand.

    Don't worry, be calm when doing it, read everything hardest part will be first unlocking boot loader and installing a new recovery cm12

    And is it worth it to jump into the Lollipop Alpha? heard there's bugs in it. (but then again, the phone itself still has bugs (screen randomly turns unresponsive momentarily)
