Here's what you MUST READ BEFORE YOU START --> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1590266
Well , before you start..
You need to root your phone.
Here's how you do it --> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1046605
After you root , you need to unlock your bootloader. This is a risky thing and you might lose your phone.
If you do NOT unlock , you can still install custom ROMS but not all of them.
If you unlock your boot loader you can install any and every compatible kernel and ROM including ICS
To know how to unlock your bootloader (READ THE WARNING IN THE FOLLOWING THREAD) --> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1481630
Root , allows you to install custom ROMS (i.e custom Android versions)
Bootloader unlock allows you to install custom kernels (recommended if you want a stable ics)
