Step 3: Now, perform a full data wipe by selecting “wipe data/factory reset” and “wipe cache partition” and then go to “advanced options in CWM Recovery” from there select “wipe Dalvik Cache“.
Step 4: Now, go to the main menu choose “install zip from SD card” > Select ROM (Which you have downloaded and placed in internal storage) > give “Yes” for confirmation. The process will take 3-5 minutes to install the ROM so wait for the whole process to complete.
