Installation Instruction of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean Based CM10.1 RC5 ROM on Nexus 10 

Step 1:

Download Google Apps [Filename:] and CM10.1 RC5 ROM for Nexus 10 [Filename:]

Step 2:

Connect your Nexus 10 and PC using a USB cable and mount your storage.

Step 3:

Once you have access to your tablet’s SD card content, copy the zip files you downloaded in Step 1 to the SD card. Important: Do NOT extract either of the files.

Step 4:

Disconnect the USB cable and turn off your tablet once the file transfer procedure is complete.

Step 5:

Boot into recovery Mode on your device by turning off your device and then booting into bootloader. In bootloader, navigate to “Recovery Mode” using the volume +/- keys and then press the Power button to select it. You can also try “Recovery Mode without Key Combination”.

Step 6:

It is important to perform an Nandroid backup of your existing ROM so that you can restore it later if this new ROM doesn’t work or in case you want to revert to original settings. To perform an Android backup, select Backup and Restore and then select Backup again on the screen after that. After the backup process is done, go back to the main recovery menu.

Step 7:

To eliminate clash between the new ROM and the previous ROM, you’ll have to do some wiping tasks. To do so, select ‘wipe data/factory reset’ and then confirm your action by selecting ‘Yes’ on the next screen. You’ll have to wait for some time while the data wiping process is carried out. Once you’re back at the CWM recovery main menu, select ‘wipe cache partition’ and once the wiping cache partition process is done, select ‘Wipe Dalvik Cache’ under advance option. Move to the next step only once you’ve completed all these processes.

Step 8:

Tick the checkboxes labeled ‘install zip from sdcard’, and ‘choose zip from sdcard’. When asked, Locate the file (from Step 3) and press the power button to select it. On the next screen, confirm installation and soon the ROM installation process will start.

Step 9:

Once the ROM installation is complete, install the Google apps package by repeating Step 8 with the file (not ROM zip)

Step 10:

Once you’ve completed all of the above steps, reboot your tablet by going back to the main recovery menu and selecting ‘reboot system’. Your tablet will now boot into the new ROM. Note that the first boot usually takes about 5 minutes. If it takes longer than 15 minutes, your device is stuck on the boot screen.
