    First, you need to install a rom. Since you have RM I imagine you want to use RM/CW so open RM select a rom and tap download. You will see the status of the download in the notification bar. When the download is complete scroll the notification bar down and tap the notification. This will start the install and you should be prompted to wipe data and cache and make a backup. Do both. When the install is complete your phone will reboot.

    Installing a theme and kernel is the same but when installing either do NOT wipe but DO make a backup.

    Hope this is helpful.

    No! You are in recovery. Did you wipe the data and cache?

    Did you install a custom recovery image first?

    You have to install a custom recovery Image before you flash a rom. Is your phone doing anything or just sitting at the stock recovery screen with the triangle?

    Reboot it.

    Press the volume up and camera button at the same time. When recovery loads, use the d-pad to highlight the reboot option. Press the center of the d-pad to select.
