Default [Q] Help me install costume ROM

So A few days ago tried to install costume ROM on my LG Optimus G. And guess what I bricked it. Now it I do it one more time I am left with on phone. So now I came up with what I am going to do. Please if someone did this already warn me about any error that might occur and how to fix them. Mainly how to unlock the bootloader
1) Download app freeGee
2)install clockworkrecovery
2.1) try to boot into the phone if Fails try to flash LGNPST teeny beans.
2.2) cry and post on the forum for help( I know there is an other way but I hard brick it last time using that method )
3)download and save to SD card the PAC man mod (If there is a better one please tell me )
4)Erase the Internal Storage
5)Erase the cache
5) Flash the new ROM
6) Flash GApps
7) I hope I am done

That's the method I used from stock software. I used the mako method to unlock boot loader via freegee app. Also I installed twrp instead of cwm.

Simple an easy solution is :
1.Connect phone is download mode.
2.Load necessary files and drivers , prior to connecting.
3.Flash the AtlBins/TeenyBins on your phone.
4.Let it complete.
5.It'll either stuck in a bootloop with AT&T logo , or will Go straight to Recovery which was installed as an additional benefit of TeenyBins. If OriginalBins don't work then tr AltBins. Mine worked with AtlBins.
6.Goto recovery and wipe out everything : /System , /Data , /Cache. ( as per your requirements.)
7.Now place the Custom rom on your SDCard along with SUBinary and recommended GApps package.
8.Flash them in queue.
9.Reboot. ( Wipe cache/dalvik if necessary ).

Pretty easy.
THis should usually work.
