Hi all,

I'm rather new to Android modding and am looking to install ICS on my Desire A8181. So far I have s-off'd and rooted my phone using Revolutionary and also installed their recovery tool. To be specific, I want to install this ROM:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2095658

My questions are:
1) In some other flashing guides, I noticed that they provide download links to an "Google Apps for ICS" package and instruct us to first flash the relevant OS ROM followed by this apps ROM, but I couldn't find any such instructions or download links to any package like that on the guides here on XDA. Is it because the apps are included in the ROMs such as the one I linked above? And if not can anyone give me a reliable link to an apps package?

2) I currently have GingerBread installed on my Desire with stock HBoot v1.02.0001 and PVT4. Judging form various guides, this is the procedure I intend to follow:
Quote:

a) create a backup as precaution
b) perform a factory reset and wipe everything using recovery tool
c) flash the ROM in the link above
d) flash any add-on ROMs or apps package
e) Enjoy?

^ Correct me if I'm missing anything here

Thanks in advance.

Gapps are included in that particular ROM, so there's no need to flash anything extra.

And yes, that's the correct process.
