Installing a custom ROM implies a number of steps:
- Root your phone.
- Flash a custom recovery (4ext or CWM).
- Store on you sd card a downloaded custom ROM.
- Reboot your phone into recovery, select the desired ROM and flash it.
- Reboot and have fun.
Note: Please BACKUP your data before doing anything! Better safe than sorry.
Make sure you have a proper recovery like CWM or TWRP
Download the ROM file off XDA, make sure you download a file made for only your system.
Wipe date and do a factory reset
(optional: make a backup of your stock ROM)
Flash your ROM
Wipe date and factory reset, reboot and $$profit$$
