Older PB31IMG.zip will already be in root of your card, you can either overwrite it with new on or rename the old file to PB31IMG.bak and then copy the PB31IMG.zip.
Step 8: Turn off your device and start it in hboot mode (hold Optical button + Power button to start in hboot mode).
Step 9: Install PB31IMG.zip in hboot mode. (It installs clockwork recovery)
Step 10: After installation, press volume down so that your phone doesn’t reboot. Now select recovery mode.
Your device will start in recovery mode.
