Step-by-step Guide

Step 6: Perform a total data wipe. Wipe Data/Factory Reset => Yes.  

Step 7: Now install CyanogenMod 10.1 Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean ROM. Install zip from SD card => Choose zip from SD card and navigate through the directory where you saved the package you just downloaded a while back.  

Step 8: Go back to main menu and reboot your device. Main Menu => Reboot System Now.

Wait until your device is fully active before you use it. Just in case you enter boot loop, try pulling out the battery and re-insert it, or you can repeat this very same process the second time around.
