Flashing means installing stuff using a recovery like cwm or twrp
Please before you proceed do read some information about basic android knowledge,
or you run the risk of running into more disadvantages than bemefits from custom roms and such

I am aware of that,I've already flashed a JB over ICS using this method ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2134192 ),but that was a long time ago,and then i did not need to root my phone or unlock bootloader.

I am wondering if that method is still good,or should i try another one?I have tried to find a thread where there is explained how to flash using cwm or twrp,but was unable to find it so i would be very greateful if someone points me to a thread where there is explanation on how to do that.

For bootloader: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2224020
Then follow instructions from second post
After you do steps from 0 to 3 (dont forget to put files into your internal memory), you will turn off your phone, press and hold power and volume down button simultaneously, when LG logo appears, press power button three times while still holding volume down, then you can release everything and you should be into recovery witch should look similar to this http://techbeasts.com/wp-content/upl...12/la-foto.jpg. Now you do steps 4-7, in backup and restore (witch is step 4), just press backup and wait a minute or two for backup to complete. Then go back and press install zip from sd card, then navigate to ROMs zip file you downloaded and click it. You will see output screen showing progress... after ROM is flashed, go again to install zip from sd card, this time you will chose gapps zip file. After that, go back, do wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache partition and in advanced tab wipe dalvik cache. Go back, reboot and you should be done!
IF anything goes wrong with flashing, you will reboot into recovery and go backup and restore, and restore.

Ok,now that I am an "expert" on flashing all kind of things (ROMs,kernels,CWM,etc),I have different kind of questions....

1)With Vanir 4.4.2 latest nightlies and iodak 9.5 or 9.9 (whatever),havent tweek anything and left it be as it is, my battery drain is catastrofic.For example with JB 4.1.2 when I leave my phone overnight it drains 1-2-3% but with vanir it goes to 15-20%....Why is that?

Also,when i leave wifi on with no surfing,couple sms and maybe 1 min of calls it drains 15-20%.And that is with brightness lowered to 50% (on my JB I allways kept it on 100%).


2)Why are my antutu results that much different on vanir and cm11?I've got almost 16k on vanir and barely 11k on cm11.

Your final observation kinda answers the previous questions, it is a performance driven rom and this usually implies less battery life.
On the other hand I can say that your drain seems a little too high, but without some battery stats it's hard to say....
