For Downloading Second File,First Check Your Kernel Version,For this Go to “Settings->About Phone->Kernel Version”. After Checking Your Kernel Version Match it with Following CF-Root Kernels.(For e.g.If Your Device is Showing “18.104.22.168-N7000XXKJ4-CL641703″ as Kernel Version.Then First Try to Mat Bold & Underlined Part i.e.KG1 Because It Matters Most.If You Find KG1 as Kernel,then You’ll need to Download “CF-Root-SGN_XX_XEN_KJ4-v5.0-CWM5.zip“.)
Note: If You didn’t Find Your Device’s Kernel Listed Above, Just Post a Comment in Comment Section,I will Try to Update the Post As Soon As Possible.
Now Open odin3_v1.85.exe which You Have Already Downloaded in Your Computer.Check the PDATab in Odin Multi Downloader.Place “CF-Root-xxx-vX.X.zip” File in PDA Tab (Which You’ve Downloaded Just Now from Above CF-Root Kernel List).

Step 2 (Installation of ICS Stunner ROM):

In the recovery mode, you need to select the option of “install zip from SD card” and then “choose zip from SD Card” after which you will see the list of files which are there in the phone. then Locate “ICS_Stunner_1.4.26.zip” which You Have Copied Earlier.Install It.It will take 3-5 minutes for Installation.Again in the Recovery Mode itself, select Wipe data/factory reset and also you need to select Wipe Cache partition.
It will take around 10-12 minutes for the whole process of update to get completed. Once the update process is done, the device will be landing up in the recovery mode. Now, select “++++ Go Back ++++” > “reboot system now” so that the device will restart successfully.
