1. Extract the boot.img from the zip to your computer, you will need this file for fastboot

2. Place CM10 rom .zip file on the root of the SD card

3. Put the phone into fastboot mode:
Code:
fastboot reboot bootloader
4. Flash boot.img:
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img

First unlock your bootloader if you already havent done so. Then extract the kernel from the cm10 zip or get another one and flash with fastboot. Fastboot mode can be entered from Flashtool menu.
