    Steps

    1)Root your Phone (Something Called Google?)
    2)Put phone in download mode (Turn off phone, hold VOL DOWN, HOME, POWER)
    3)Plug in the USB Cable
    4)Boot up Odin, It should say "<ID:0/[Your ID]> Added!!"
    If not, retry, or use a different USB cable
    5) Click PDA, and select the file you downloaded
    6) Click start, it should begin to write to the NAND
    7) Done!

    ---------------------------
    Now the phone should boot normally into Android OS.
    If not, retry the steps after pulling the battery for 5 minutes

    Turn off the phone, Hold VOL UP, HOME, POWER, for Recovery.
    Happy Rom Flashing!!
