    Move zip to sd card.

    Use VooDoo root keeper and back up root.
    If using Safestrap, open safestrap and Uninstall Recovery.
    Power off device.
    Power on in Android Recovery
    Volume down to Recovery volume up to select.
    When you see Android "!" Press volume up and down at the same time.
    Now volume down to clear cache, power to select.
    Volume down to install update from sd card power to select.
    Volume down to zip file, power to select
    Let it do its thing. (8 min)
    Then select reboot.

    I followed these instructions and kept getting an error when flashing the update.zip file. Tried 2 times from 2 different download sources. Not sure why....

    Make sure you have unfroze any apps and re installed any bloat you removed.

    Make sure binary for Superuser is 3.1.1

    When in the install process does it crap out and give an error message?
