Install cyanogenmod 11 (kitkat 4.4) on samsung galaxy mini GT-s5570

This post is a part of my tutorial Install Android Kitkat 4.4.2(cyanogenmod 11) on Samsung Galaxy mini GT-S5570 (Camera and video recording also working) and should not be followed as a standalone tutorial to install cyanogenmod. Complete steps should be followed from the above link. You can continue if the above link has sent you here. This tutorial is about intalling this ROM into the phone. Here are the steps :
1. Download the ROM here. Details about the ROM are given here. Place the downloaded file in the sd card (not in any folder inside sd card)
2. Do a Nandroid backup! (not compulsory if you have backup up of all important stuff like contacts and apps plus you dont mind about other things getting lost like wallpaper, configurations, OS etc.)
What is a nandroid backup?
3. Turn off the phone (remove data cable) and enter the CWM recovery by pressing and holding HOME + Power keys.
4. wipe data/factory reset + wipe cache partition
5. Select install zip from sd card. When prompted, select the downloaded file to install.
6. Reboot Phone normally. (On booting first time, your phone may take 4-5 minutes to boot)
7. Your phone should now boot into android kitkat (camera not yet working).
8. Open up your phone menu and if you can find the app called "Terminal Emulator" you are successful following this tutorial. :)
Now you can go to next step updating cwm to version 6.0.4.8.
