CyanogenMod is the most popular and used third-party ROM for any android devices.The CM ROMs are developed by Team CM.CM ROMs come with no bloatware and they have a very close to vanilla android look but with some added tweaks which are very helpful.Nowadays people are rooting their phone to take advantage of the full potential of the phone.

      Stable builds are pre-rooted.So wait for stable built or some pre-rooted cyanogenMod ROM

    The only option I have (other than disabled) is ‘ADB only’.
    Not sure what that means but none of my apps have root access, I still have no Super User, and my CWM recovery vanished and left me with only the stock Samsung recovery when I installed CM so I’m unable to update CM or do anything really.
