Keep in mind that you need an EXTERNAL SDCARD for this...Or you are already using one, you will have to wait a while in recovery if that happens...it takes some time...if not, reinsert your sdcard...

This is going to be a bit of a noob question, but I'm new to samsungs, I swear that rooting is very different on everything else.

Is this the best way to flash a new aosp rom? The phone is not ICS at the moment, so I was going to flash stock ICS, follow this tutorial to root, and then install some jb rom like rootbox. Or can I just do temporary CWM and flash the root box on there and keep cwm?

No, JB ROMs require ICS bootloader...so the best way is to flash a stock ICS ROM, root it and get a kernel with CWM, then only flash the new ROM...

U must flash ics stock firmware 1st in order to get the ics bootloader..then u can do temporary cwm and can flash any roms based on ics/jb..
