  1. Google Apps (Jelly Bean).
  • After downloading CM10 package, connect your device to PC. Enable mass storage mode on it. Now transfer CM10 package & Google Apps to your device’s internal SD card.
  • Now disconnect the phone from computer. Boot in recovery mode. To do so, switch off the device completely, press & hold Volume Down button + Power key. You’ll be landed in bootloader mode. Now highlight recovery option using volume up/down keys & select it using power button.
  • Take a nandroid backup of your current ROM so that it can be restored back (in case if anything goes wrong). To backup your current ROM, select Backupand Restore option from the recovery mode & on next screen, select backup. Now It will make a nandroid backup of your whole system (excluding SD card). Wait for the backup process to get finished. (You can restore it back by selecting restore option).
  • After successful backup, select wipe data/factory reset & wipe cache partition to wipe all the data & caches from the phone memory respectively.
  • Select “install zip from sdcard” & then “choose zip from sdcard“. Navigate the ROM file (which you’ve transferred earlier) Select it & press on ‘Yes‘ to continue. ROM installation process will start.
  • Wait for the ROM to get installed. After ROM gets successfully installed, your phone will land in the recovery mode again.
  • (Optional) The same procedure you have to do for installation of Google Apps. (Just don’t do the above step i.e, wiping data after installation of Gapps). After you finished installation of Gapps, press back button to go to main menu of CWM.
