This is the easiest way to flash!!!
This is how I've done it and it's my third rom in 5 days.
1. Format you micro SD to FAT32 using a USB card reader, not quick format preferably
2. Read CID from your SD with Qmat while connected with active sync
3. Get Gold Card using QMat with the CID obtained, you should have in 2 min
4. Write GoldCard image to SD using Write Image in Qmat, while connected using active sync
5. Run the stock ROM of your choice form your desktop and you're done!!!
WORKS LIKE CHARM
