    In order to proceed with this tutorial, your Motorola Droid Bionic must be rooted. If you have not rooted your phone, please view my tutorial on how to do so here.

    1. Find and download to your desktop the custom ROM you would like to place on your phone.

    2. Connect your Motorola Droid Bionic to the computer via USB cable.

    3. Enable Mass Storage on your Droid Bionic.

    4. Relocate the downloaded ROM from your desktop the root folder on your phone's SD card. It should be in the main directory and not inside any other folders.

    5. Open the bootstrap application and select 'Reboot Recovery'.

    6. Once in this section, create an Android backup. You can do so by navigating down to 'Backup and Restore', pressing power, selecting 'Backup' and pressing the power button again. This will initiate the backup process.

    7. Upon completion of the backup, navigate back to the main menu. From here, head to the 'Wipe Data/Factory Reset' option and and press power. This will format everything, so make sure you have done the backup and have saved all files you wish to keep.

    8. You will be asked to confirm the reset. Press the power button again to confirm.

    9. Once the reset process is complete, navigate to and select the 'Install Zip From SD Card' option.

    10. Choose the appropriate ZIP from the SD card (wherever you placed it).

    11. Once selected, press the power button to install it.

    12. Once this is completely flashed, reboot the device and it is ready to go!
