– 4G (for the SCH-I905)
– AGPS (network based location)
– HW accelerated video [Just GT-P7510, at the moment]

All done? Now follow these steps:

- After installing CWM, boot the device into ClockworkMod Recovery by pressing and holding the power key and the Volume down and Volume up key all together.
Let go of the Power button when the screen turns on but keep holding the Volume buttons until you see a menu. Press the Volume Down key to highlight the Recovery Mode icon, then press the Volume Up key to enter Recovery Mode.
- Create a Nandroid Backup of your current ROM so that you can easily restore it. Select Backup and Restore > Backup and go back to the main recovery menu afterwards.

- Select Install ZIP from SD Card > Choose ZIP from SD Card and select the ROM’s ZIP file. Wait for the flashing to finish.
Here the zip will be the respective ROM that you have downloaded earlier.
