2. Now copy this file to the memory card root folder.
3. Start the clockworkmod recovery menu.
5. Now navigate to "Backup & Restore" by pressing Volume Down button and then press select (power button to select) then select "Backup" (its preferred to make a backup)
6. Now select "install zip from sdcard".
7. Press on "Choose zip from sdcard"
