I have to say AKOP has been the best I have tried so far, fast and smooth

it's really not very hard you just gotta follow instructions.

any particular words or things you need to do, just ask we'll give ya a simple definition/understanding of what needs to be done etc.

If you're already unlocked and rooted, I'd say the hardest part is already done. Just download the ROM zip, put it on your phone, reboot the phone into recovery, assuming you're using CWM, make a backup, do the wipes (system, cache, delvik) then just flash the ROM. Also, before any of that, use something like Titanium Backup to back up your apps and whatnot, to restore after you flash.

Don't forget Gapps ;)

Make a backup of your current Rom before flashing that way if something did go wrong you can restore It and try again.

I am in the same boat. The more I read and search, the more questions I have. I have a macbook and I never sure if I need to backup to a PC, MAC, or the phone. I started with cyberworrior's great tutorial but had some issues with the backup. When it was done it couldn't find or write to a file. I will re-try and take some notes on the error.

It's really pretty easy. I was nervous at first too, but once I jumped in, I found it was actually pretty painless.

The one thing that did freak me out was this: After flashing AOKP, I tried to reboot my phone, and every time I'd hit power to select that option, the screen would turn off. If I hit power, it'd come right back to recovery, right where I left off. Apparently, I inadvertently disabled the ability to leave the screen I was on. After doing a battery pull, and rebooting into the bootloader, I was fine. Scared the crap out of me, but all was good. From what I understand, it's damn near impossible to brick one of these things, so as long as I could get into recovery, I knew I was fine.
