Hi.
I have a T989 and I recently installed Cyanogenmod 10.2 on it (the official version).But I am not satisfied and want to go back to this ROM which I was originally running:

That will work just fine. You might have to flash the version of gapps that corresponds to the version of Android you're installing to get Google Apps to work if they're not included.

I'd try out the final version of paranoid Android rom based on 4.4.4. It looks pretty sick.

One thing tho. From my experience anyway.

When flashing 4.1.2 touch wiz ONLY.....I always use these wipe scripts....

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2235141

And I flash 2.5.0.0 or 2.6.0.0 twrp first with odin or a flashable zip, then the wipes , then the ROM. Gapps are included in TW roms.

Then, if you're gonna flash 4.2.2 or higher aosp ROMs....update to a newer twrp, use its wipes and flash ROM then gapps.

You can try without any of that, but if you have issues....try it this way.

Don't use the wipes on anything but twrp 2.5 to 2.6.0.0 and never on 4.2.2 or higher....only 4.1.2 TW based ROMs.
