Also this should be Sticky atm, as this is the only way as of now to flash a recovery!

The Recovery gives use the abilty to flash any update.zip after it is signed with testkeys... But we are using ClockworkMod Recovery due to options it has..

Before we Start, You must Have ROOT & Downloaded this .zip and Place on your Sdcard

Step 2.

Step 3.

Step 4.
su

Step 5.
cd /data/local

Step 6.

Step 7.

Not sure if it's an alternate way, I think it's a downgrade after root is applied... We'll have to wait and see.
