Hello there!

You are probably wondering how to install CyanogenMod based ROM on this phone. Well it's easy.
In this guide we will cover how can you install CM over stock ROM and how to upgrade/switch ROMs. So let's get started.

--------------------------------
FLASHING FROM STOCK

1) Make sure your phone is rooted
2) Download CWM Recovery (easiest install is by ROM Manager):
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...tta.rommanager
3) Choose your ROM and download it to your SD card.
You can choose either Oliver's CM ROM(http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2176244)
or Maclaw's CM ROM (http://maclaw.pl)
4) Download gapps to your SD card (Google applications like Play Store, Play Services and such): http://goo.im/gapps
5) Reboot to recovery
6) Choose Wipe data/factory reset
7) After wiping go to Advanced and select Wipe Dalvik
8) After wiping (still in Advanced menu) select format /system
9) After formating choose back (or return) to go back to main menu
10) Select install zip from SD card and when next menu appears press Choose from internal SD card (or if it is on external SD press choose zip from external SD).
11) Locate where did you put your ROM and click on it.
12) After successful install refer to point number 10)
11) Locate where did you put your gapps and click on it.
12) After successful installation choose wipe data/factory reset
13) After wipe choose advanced then click on wipe dalvik
14) Go back to main menu and press reboot

If you followed all the steps you should have a working CyanogenMod ROM on your phone.
NOTE: First boot takes time.

--------------------------------
--------------------------------
Upgrading / switching CM ROMs (only if you already have CM installed)

1) Download your desired ROM and put it on your SD
2) Reboot to recovery
3) Choose Wipe Cache
4) After wipe go to Advanced and choose wipe dalvik
5) Go back to main menu and select install zip from SD card
6) Select Choose zip from internal sd (or if it is on external SD press choose zip from external SD)
7) Click on the desired ROM zip file.
8) After successful install refer to the point 3) and 4) of this part of the guide (Section Upgrading / switching)
10) Go back to main menu and press reboot

If you followed all the steps correctly you should have a upgraded ROM. Or new ROM if switching developers.

Note: First boot takes time. Its because of regeneration of all files.

--------------------------------

There you go. If you have any ideas / recommendations / post them below

IF YOU BRICK YOUR DEVICE I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE. THINGS IN THIS GUIDE ARE TESTED AND PROVED WORKING!

Do they work now? Sometimes after installing buttons don't work. Reboot solves the problem

Yeah. I wanted to make this dev independent. Also this is somewhat false proof method cause I am/was using it on numerous devices.
