1. Use your wireless connection to connect to the Internet. Go into Apps and then launch the ROM Manager. Allow it to update if required but also allow it to "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery". It has to do this so ensure you select the correct device when the options are listed - that bit is important. Allow it to flash and then "Reboot into Recovery". Even though you have CWM installed I have always found that the Rom Manager will not recognise it and needs to flash its own first and then it will boot the tablet into CWM.
2. Put those files on the SD card PRIOR
to the above. When in CWM select option to "install zip from SD card" and do just that. First for the theme and then for SP1.
reboot - you will see the option in CWM.
3. Yes. Use Rom Manager to reboot to CWM and then use the backup and restore function.
4. What CWM can do for a complete ROM (and apps) Titanium Pro...https://market.andro...BackupPro&hl=en
...has bells and whistles to do something similar in a different way - but not backup the ROM. Have a read on the above linked site and then decide whether it will be something that you could need. You don't have to invest into that right away I just want you to be aware of it. For me it has been absolutely invaluable over the years for what it can do.
The priority is to get a working tablet and then create a backup up in CWM, imo.
At some stage it will be required to create an account prior to using the Market. Just follow the on-screen guide or if you have one already enter your details as needed.
IMO do not
use the ROM Manager for anything other than to install or upgrade the correctly chosen CWM and to boot into recovery to CWM.
Also check out the Wi-Fi on and off widget from the market by Curvefish and also, by the same dev, the brightness widget.
Apply those widgets to the desktop of the tablet, as they are both very useful.
