    How to Install a custom rom with SPRecovery

    1.) Download the rom
    2.) Place the file in the root of your sdcard.(Not in any folder just on the sd card.)
    3.) Rename the rom to update.zip. Be sure that you are only naming it update.zip. Windows often does not show file extensions and you will end up with files named update.zip.zip. Renaming files with Astro File Manager once they are on your sd card is a good solution to this.
    4.) Power off your droid
    5.) Boot into recovery by holding X while powering on the phone
    6.) Perform a nandroid backup (always sound practice although this is not required)
    7.) Wipe data/factory reset (Again not required all the time but unless you are sure it will work without wiping its smart to do so.)
    8.) Wipe Cache Partition (Again not required all the time but unless you are sure it will work without wiping its smart to do so.)
    9.) Click on install (Note you can use the volume rocker to navigate and the camera button to select.)
    10.) Press allow update.zip Installation
    11.) Press Install /sdcard/update.zip (deprecated)
    12.) When the install is complete use the power button to go back to the main menu
    13.) Reboot
