Unlocking your bootloader and installing Clockworkmod Recovery
Vital step for flashing ROMs. Unlocking your bootloader is also important so you can flash Clockworkmod Recovery.

 
You first need to download L7CWM.rar
You also need to have USB Debugging on on your phone, which you can activate by going to Menu>Settings>Developer Option>USB Debugging.
  1. Move the package to the Desktop.
  2. Extract the files to C://, the root destination.
  3. Now connect your phone to PC via USB Cable.
  4. Run the extracted Flash_Bootloader.bat, and it'll unlock your device's bootloader.
  5. Your phone now and should reboot, in which after it's done you can run the extracted Flash_Recovery.bat.
  6. To continue flashing recovery, follow the on-screen directions.
  7. Reboot your device. Your phone now has Clockworkmod Recovery!



Getting into Clockworkmod Recovery.
Okay, now you have Clockworkmod Recovery installed on your device. Here's how to actually get into Clockworkmod Recovery.

 

Getting into Clockworkmod Recovery Manually using buttons.
  1. Power Off your device, or do a battery pull and wait 10 seconds if you're stuck somewhere.
  2. Press down and hold FIRMLY on both volume buttons and the home button.
  3. Keeping the other buttons pressed, now press and hold the power button.
  4. Hold down all buttons FIRMLY until the phone vibrates. The boot logo should appear and soft button should light up.
  5. If Clockworkmod Recovery doesn't run, do a battery pull, wait, and restart.



Flashing Process
General process for flashing a new custom ROM, but be sure to follow any other specific directions the devs say to do. This is assuming you already have your bootloader unlocked and is using CWM Recovery.

 
  1. Create a Nandroid backup (highly recommended).
  2. Wipe data/factory reset.
  3. Wipe your cache.
  4. Wipe the Dalvik cache. You may enter a bootloop if you don't wipe your caches.
  5. Enter "Mounts and storage" and mount /system and format /system.
  6. Flash your gApps (be sure to have the correct version).
  7. Reboot.
  8. Wait. First boot is always long.

Here's also a link that explains a lot of stuff like how to unlock your bootloader and install CWM Recovery.
