So this is what i have to do only? I dont need another revovery (all stock) or unlocked bootloader etc?
Thank you guys for help.
First of all you need to unlock bootloader of your phone.
1.Then, flash custom kernel (probably this one from the rom's zip)
2.Reboot to recovery, do all 3 wipes and flash the rom. (Follow the instructions provided in thread you linked)
I think you don't have to update your phone to ICS before flashing.
