    Yes, you will need to flash the "special" .sfb file with RSDlite.

    If you perform a nandroid backup, you will preserve your phone in its current state. So if you screw up anywhere post-SPRecovery installation, you will always have that backup available. There really is no need for a fresh stock ROM although YMMV.

    You should also transfer that nandroid backup to your computer and keep it somewhere safe. Rename only the folder to something you will remember.

    Then to get root access, just use SPRecovery to install a rooted ROM (renamed to update.zip). Where you go from there is up to you.
