I thought I found something about it, but tried it and it didn't work. Would this be a good place to start? http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1917237 ?

I'm having a really hard time helping you ..you seem to lack very basic computer skills. I'm sorry but some things you just have to know before you start messing with a phone like this. knowing how to unzip a file and run a basic command in terminal are minimum ...what if you really needed something complicated ? We are on 15 post, on just learning to clear the cache ..it's very frustrating to me sorry.

I ran a bunch of commands yesterday in terminal and just figured out how to unzip the files. It's harder to do on Mac since there's no option to like with PC.

Ended up figuring out how to do it and I did end up installing the ROM, now trying to go back to stock ROM since the one I installed doesn't even install apps properly.. I'm almost there except I can't run an RUU. Have that in a different thread though.
