  • After taking the backup, select ‘wipe data/factory reset’ option followed by ‘wipe cache partition’ option on the recovery mode to clear all your data & caches from your device internal memory respectively.
  • You’ll find an option named ‘install zip from SD card’ in the main menu of recovery mode. Select it using the Home button (middle button). On the next screen select ‘choose zip from SD card’ option which will show you all the files and folders located on your phones external SD card.

  • In few minutes, the ROM will get successfully flashed. After that you’ll again land into recovery mode. Now navigate to the ‘wipe data/factory reset’ option and select it. Similarly do it for ‘wipe cache partition’ option on the recovery mode. Both these options will clear the entire data & cache present of your phones internal memory.
  • Similarly, install the GApps zip file as you’ve installed the custom ROM. Just remember not to wipe data after that.
  • You may restart your phone now. For that navigate to the ‘reboot system now’ option and select it. You’ll notice that a complete new boot has executed. This first boot will take more time to start than usual.
