Copy the zip file to your sdcard and then boot in to ClockWorkMod. (or TWRP)
CWM > Wipe data/factory reset
CWM > advanced > reboot recovery
CWM > install zip from SD > Choose zip from sdcard > select StockPlus-B960-R6.zip
Wait for installation to finish and reboot
Recommended on first boot
Once the ROM has booted for the first time I would recommend leaving it for a few minutes while it finishes it's initial setup. After this I'd recommend doing the following to improve the overall usage of the ROM:
App drawer > No-Frills CPU > Set Governor to SmartassV2, set I/O scheduler to noop and for nice performance boost set the Max clock frequency to 1.152Ghz.
NB: I have found most G300's to be pretty stable between 1Ghz and 1.19Ghz so you can comfortably use 1.19Ghz if you wish but if you want keep things conservative and still have a little performance improvement then setting the max frequency to 1.152ghz is a great compromise.
