Start here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1487105

Read through it multiple times, then re-read again.

You need to ROOT the device, install CWM or TWRP recovery (from the Play Store), then follow the directions in the thread of the custom ROM. If you have a non-rooted ICS phone, pay careful attention to the unlocking and rooting instructions: the bootloader is locked.

Best ROM? Pull out the daggers....

I'm of the opinion that Gingerbread ROMs are best for the P970; they are stable, fast, reliable, and every component works.

ICS ROMs for the P970 are fairly stable, but subject to freezes, lockups, quirks, and everything else.

ROMs after ICS (Jellybean & Kitkat) are very quirky, with some componets outright not working.

If I were installing a ROM on SOMEONE ELSE'S PHONE, I would install either Zeus 6.4 (from this Link) or Marvel 9 (with this PATCH).
