which he said,


Step 3 says enter recovery. How do I enter recovery? Just paste the .zip file into the SDcard and it will work??

You can't enter to recovery if you don't have one whoa, You need to install the kernel which contains the recovery via fastboot(you need fasboot binaries you can find them in Sdk/platform-tools). Give me your hangouts if you need more help
