    Flashing a ROM is merely the process after downloading the zip file of the ROM, which is a compressed version of the working files you'll be installing, and then moving that zip to your sd card, then via recovery mode, flashing the ROM into your phone.

    - Download a ROM of choice to your computer

    - Plug your charging/USB cable into your computer's USB port

    - Select "disc drive" on your phone

    - Wait while your computer recognizes the phone then select "view files"

    - Drag the zipped ROM to the sd card (that's the top directory in the sd card's hierarchy)

    - Disconnect the USB cable.

    - Power down your phone

    - Hold the volume up key and press the power button

    - Select "wipe"

    - Wipe and Dalvik wipe (two operations)

    - Press the volume down key

    - Select flash

    - Select your ROM's zip file

    - Press the track ball.

    (go slowly ;))

    Here is a page with some ROM starting points. Have fun.

    Im thinking maybe he should do a nand backup before the wipes.
    I know I would, because if your zipped rom is &%$*ED up, you got to have some thing in recovery to restore.
