Forum Thread: Installing CM10 from Stock Android?

Anyone have a run down of installing CyanogenMod 10 (CM10) on a Nexus 7? I'm on Stock Android right now. Heard the rom was the most popular too. Simple directions would be okay...

Isn't it root and then flash the rom with CWM?

I don't think it's that simple. Why use CyanogenMod anyway? Isn't stock good enough?

Stock is good but CM10 is better. Comes with more features and is pre-rooted also. More features and better battery life are just a few reasons to use CM10. If you want a better Android, use CM10. The speed increase is what makes CM10 the go-to Android rom.

Here are some simplified instructions:

  1. unlock bootloader
  2. install ClockworkMod Recovery
  3. wipe your device
  4. flash CM10 and gapps
  5. reboot

Uhhh, I did some searching and i'm already a bit lost. Anyone have a better tutorial / directions???
