Is it this fom the OP "-wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache partition, select -advanced, -wipe dalvik cache?"
I would much rather have official ICS or JB but I believe the JB isnt available yet for the i777.... just the I9100, correct? I am thinking I am going CM10.1 or ShoStock3 though. Watched YouTube videos and I like them both. Any thoughts or is there a post that compares the 2?
You wipe cache and dalvik cache.
Install just like the root zip.
There's no official JellyBean and possibly never will be for i777, plus official sucks.
Official ICS has the super brick bug so not recommended.
You should be able to install SHOstock3 from stock as is it doesn't have the assert checks like some ROMs do.
If you're going to use SHOstock3 I recommend flashing the PhilZ CWM from the OP here first, as it has extra features available for that ROM.
