basically you make all the notes flat
Simple way to do it if your in tune

When you are in normal tuning, lower your low E string so that instead of the 5th fret being the same note as the A-sting, it's the 6th fret.

From there just tune it normally.

Go to the 6th fret on your A string whilst your guitar is tuned in standard. Then play the fretted note and the open low e string at the same time and slowly tune the es tring down (only a small bit) until the the e string is exactly an octave below the 6th fret of your a string, after that tune your guitar like you normally would, but because the e string is a semi tone flat, the other strings will be a semi tone flat as well, when you're done, your guitar is a half step down.
You've read it, you can't un-read it!

Get yourself a chromatic tuner, loosen the strings a bit, and tune to D#,G#,C#,F#,A#,D#, or Eb,Ab,Db,Gb,Bb,Eb. Either way the tuner reads it's the same.

I do that, then adjust the rest of the tabs to match the tuning

You don't even need a chromatic. Most guitar tuners have a flat button, and you can press that once then tune normally.

Fret the first fret and check the tuning, then tune it to whatever the note is and fret again

How would you go about tuning sharp or flat with this tuner? Im to cheap to rake out the cash for a "good" tuner, so im stuck with this one.

when I had a tuner like that, I tuned it so that it flashed between the flat of the note and the sharp of the note before..

in other words..if I was tuning the low E to Eb, It would go from F# to Eb simultaneously. It worked on mine.
