Start here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1487105
Read through it multiple times, then re-read again.
This thread is also useful:
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....

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
