But when I click reboot to recovery my phone comes to a blank screen with a red phone icon. Am I doing the steps right or did I leave something out? Been trying to figure it out since 6 this morning.

You need to set your device into USB debug mode in Setting > developer option > enable usb debug mode

Red phone icon means u didn't flash custom recovery yet. You must flash custom recovery in order to install custom rom.
Take a look here for custom recovery @ http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2498746

For custom roms, I use ViperMax :
@ ViperMax International @
@ ViperMax Sprint/Verizon @

Other roms, do visit One Max Android Development forum

Ok thanks so much man. So after I get the custom recovery I flash a custom Rom or do I use firewater to s-off/root then install the custom Rom?

Appreciate if you do hit thank button for thanking me..
Root and S-off are two different things.
Firewater for s-off. S-off can be done before or after flash custom rom.
Every custom root mostly come with SuperSU(rooteed)
Be sure to do full backup your stock rom in recovery before flashing any rom.

1. Unlock bootloader
2. Flash custom recovery
3. Full backup
4. S-OFF with firewater
5. Flash custom Rom
