Hey guys
So, I want to install this ROM but the tutorial on the topic is confusing

Could anyone please post the right install procedure?

I'm currently on the Rooted, Deodexed and Zipaligned .205 Stock ROM from @dipesh1502. Locked BL, 3&1 Recovery installed.

Thanks!

1. Wipe data/dalvik/cache via recovery.
2. Flash the Slimkat ROM and GAPPS via recovery.

Reboot.

** You already have the 4.3 (.205) kernel installed. So, no need to flash the kernel via flashtool.

** The ROM has built in recoveries.. Press vol buttons when red LEDs leading to a vibration.

** Keep a full cwm backup of your current setup, just in case. (BTW, Restoring .205 ROM's data into Slimkat didn't work for me)

So I flash it with CWM? Or it can be with Philz or TWRP?

I used TWRP. Some had issues (baseband missing) with Philz when flashing other ROMs.
