Default Full Wipe

So the numbers match

Full wipe

Lets do a Full wipe. This prepares your phone to accept a new ROM.

Select the <--- arrow to go back, or use the back button of your phone, TWICE, to go back here:

Select the wipe | format.

A full wipe is:

a) wipe data/factory reset
b) wipe cache
c) wipe dalvik cache

You can do all three by selecting the first and third options on the screen.

Select wipe date/factory reset
Select wipe cache + dalvik

I do a full wipe a bit differently. The wipe date/factory reset +wipe cache + dalvik is the commonly recommended approach. I do a full wipe this way:

Select wipe date/factory reset
Select Format all partitions (except SDCard)

Your choice
You will be asked to confirm your actions.

When done, lets press back again to go back to the main screen, by selecting the back button.

Flash the ROM

By now you are pretty familiar with the screens so I will stop posting screenies.

1. Select - install from sdcard again.

2. Select - chose zip from the sdcard

3. Scroll to the bottom, you will see the zip file of the ROM you downloaded.

4. Select the zip file of the ROM you downloaded and confirm your action.

After that depending on the ROM, you will have to follow a set on instructions on screen or just sit and wait. Once done. Reboot the phone.

First boot on a new ROM take some time 5-10 minutes. Subsequent reboots are much faster.

If everything worked out you have a new ROM installed on your phone!
