Download cwr from my signature. Put update.zip on your internal and make sure it is only thing labeled that on there. Boot into stock recovery (blue) and hit Reinstall Packages, let it cycle, hit it again and stock (blue) now becomes cwr (green) and flash away

Yes that is the best way as a matter of fact. Btw what ROM are you wanting to flash?

Again see link in my signature for ICS install instruction. I suggest you play with a 2.2 like Fishman 's Bionix and familiarize yourself with handling functions like flashing, restoring, ram tweaks, ....otherwise you might get into more than you can handle. ICS is a pretty advanced flash and could potentially brick your device if something goes wrong. Not as easy as just flashing update.zip, hence my guide. Also see warning at the top of the guide. Very important and the cause/solution is still WIP.

Also you are on your own for finding the needed files. Sorry but my dropbox acct has been getting flexed lately so i am giving it a break. Good luck and make sure you hit Xrider's thanks for posting in two separate threads to helps you with the .apk.

Going to bed. Good luck.
