What is ClockworkMod?:
ClockworkMod – also known as Clockwork and CWM – is a custom recovery for Android phones and tablets that allows you to perform several advanced recovery, restoration, installation and maintenance operations on your Android device that aren’t possible with the stock recovery.

Flashing CyanogenMod ROM

1. Select Flash Update from main menu.
2. Select first ‘‘ option and browse for CyanogenMod update zip package that you downloaded before.
3. Downloads will be found in /sdcard/madmanager/
4. Then do the same with Google Apps update package.

Note: Galaxy5 has small system partition. Since the system partition is full even with minimal Google Apps, don’t flash additional updates, unless you know what you are doing! Leave the third empty!

5. Select Backup ROM if you want to backup current ROM before flashing. Make sure you are backing up any Custom ROM not Stock ROM else it wont work. If you are running stock Samsung ROM don’t check Backup ROM option!

6. If you are upgrading from CM7, Froyo or Eclair, you will need to Wipe Data. Just tick the Wipe Data option. If you are selecting Wipe Data, then Dalvik cache will be wipe with it, so there is no need to select Wipe Dalvik cache, though, if you select it, app will ignore it while flashing.
7. Now select Flash update(s). Phone will reboot into recovery and flash updates automatically.
After flashing it will boot into new CyanogenMod 9 – Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).
Have fun!
