Chances are you've already gotten an answer, but I need to get my 10 noob posts so here goes.
Always start with a good backup. At least apps you want to get back. Backups usually are stored online or somewhere the ROMwipe can't get to it so just run the backup however you want.
If you don't have CWM flashed already, do so.
Connect your phone to your computer and enable USB transfer mode.
Make sure you have the USB driver for your phone installed on your computer.
Access your phone's primary SD card (usually the first one that shows up in My Computer).
Move the rebelrom .zip file directly onto that drive (the root) without extracting it or renaming it.
Properly deactivate USB mode and disconnect from computer.
Restart the phone in CWM recovery mode (hold the volume up and power key to turn on, then continue holding volume up until the splash screen comes up).
Start with "ROMwipe". Don't worry, your backup will be fine, and you will remain in recovery the whole time.
"Install .zip from SD card" next.
See where I'm going with this?
