    Alright so i just rooted my phone, I viewed other threads and I couldnt find exactly what I was looking for in simple words. So the question is. I want to install the NexBeast rom. How do i do that?

    and how do you install kernels

    Are you using SPRecovery or Clockwork?

    Ok you have SPRecovery, download the rom to your pc and rename it to update then plug in your phone and mount it to your pc and copy and paste the file to your SDCard, not in any folder. Then unmount your phone and power it off. Hold doown the X on your hard key board and power it up (keep holding X) when it comes up use your volume buttons to go down to wipe data or something like that (this will wipe all data from your phone and you will need to setup your gmail account again. then select install zip from sdcard (or something like that) then use you camera button to select it. New menu, select the 2nd option down allow install zip (or something like that) then select the 3rd option down.

    Once done reboot and you should have NexBeast

    The 1 YES...you will need to reload all your apps as well.

    did you select the 2 option down (allow install of zip) first and then the 3rd option (install zip)?

    recheck your file name and location. it can be easy to add an extra .zip to the end of the file.... just a thought

    Ok in the install menu screen you should have

    Choose ROM from SD card
    Allow update.zip Installation
    Install /sdcard/update.zip (deprecated)

    Highlight (Allow update.zip Installation) select it...then
    Highlight (Install /sdcard/update.zip (deprecated)) select it.
