Many people say that when you flash the ROM you are not rooting your phone. Rooting an Android device is a different matter. We only manipulate ROMs to get the latest, clearer and easier Android OS. But, in fact, most custom ROMs come to the phone with root trouble and so when you customize the ROM you will root your mobile device.
Unlocking the bootloader and flashing custom recovery can be a different process from device to device.

- You will need to wait for the backup
If you can do the backup on your phone, it would be nice as it can back up your entire system including ROM.
Step 3. Download ROM and Flash
Open your PC browser and search for the best Android ROM for your phone on Google. MIUI, Liquid Smooth ROMs, and CyanogenMod are the most popular ROMs out there. Now, transfer the zip file to your computer via a USB connection on your mobile. You can download it directly to your Android device using a Wi-Fi connection.
Now, Flash the ROM

When all is said and done, your phone is ready to restart with the new ROM.
