    I'm one click away from unlocking. I know this is all you need to flash the zip.
    I just don't know how to flash it! I plan on rooting too.Can I just straight up root it THEN flash the update?
    Or am I thinking all wrong here...

    When you're done rooting just flash the zip file in recovery and you're good to go

    Unlock, root, download and open rom manager and flash recovery then boot into recovery and install zip.

    You want the full leak or just the radios? There's no custom ROMs for 404 build. I'm on a 403 ROM using the 404 radios

    DroidTh3ory's new ROM is based off the 4.0.4 leak (I think it's Axiom 2.5). Tranquilice by p3droid is as well if I'm not mistaken.

    If you're looking for pure stock 4.0.4 I recommend checking out THIS one.

    I flashed back to stock 4.0.2 and re-rooted. And I'm currently downloading that particular ROM since it has the 4.0.4 radios and whatnot.
    That link has lots of other cool stuff too. Will I be able to flash themes over that?
    Like different animations for the softkeys and a different launcher and such?

    No themes that I know of … 4.0.4 has gotten little love cuz source has yet to he releases. Not sure about softkey mods either. But I am using Nova Launcher Prime on it with Imo's latest lean kernel and have been loving it … grabbed Widgetoid off the market to get the quick settings in my notification bar and I am all set. :D

    Flash in cwm. No wipe needed. They are used to improve performance and battery life.

    Easy as that! God, I love this rooting thing. And Android. So what's the best kernel for the ROM mentioned by YankInDaSouth? And where can I get it?

    I'm using lean kernel on the 4.0.4 ROM he linked you to (I believe that's what he linked to, on my phone right now) and I have outstanding life and performance. You can get it from rootzwiki

    Yea, I've read that the kernel is magnificent for the ROM. But, I can't seem to locate .zip for said kernel.
    Help?
