I can then boot on my current kk stock system after this or do I need to flash again kernel or something ...? I still want the stock to be functional just in case... Thanks
1a. BEFORE everything you should copy your desired flashable rom zip file (carbonrom.zip) to your phone.
1b. to make things easy create folder 'clockworkmod' and subfolder 'multi_flash' and THERE you can put all your zips you want to flash at once.
2. flash PhilZ with odin
3. reboot into recovery, I recommend to make your settings to configure PhilZ first and then
4. choose PhilZ option 'install new rom' (which formats system, data, cache+dalvik)
4. flash carbonrom (PhilZ option 'install zip' or choose 'install multiple zip' if you want to flash i.e. gapps too which is highly recommended - beware that you have all those zips you want to flash at once in that above mentioned folder multi_flash. To avoid to flash in alphabetical order simply rename the zips with a beginning number, i.e. carbonrom.zip to 01-carbonrom.zip, gapps.zip to 02-gapps.zip, etc.)
5. wipe dalvik+cache (might be only a safety rule .to avoid any issues)
7. enjoy !
ah .... if you want to return to stock simply flash stockrom via odin.
