So i cleaned up the system and flashed the Blazing safe kernel and now it got kinda interesting...
After using the scripts to clean everything up, then i flashed the kernel again to double check i had recovery, i tried to flash the ROM i wanted which is Cyanfox, it gave me an error.
Updating bla bla bla....
.
.
.
This package is is for "i9100g,GT-I9100G" devices;
E:Error executing updater binary in zip '/emmc/......'
Error flashing zip '/emmc/bla bla'
Updating partition details...

After that i tried the SLIM ROM 4.2.2, frankly i don't remember where i got it from as it was sitting there for some time.
Anyways it worked and that's weird...cyanfox was supposed to work as other users say it worked for them.
Also when Slim was flashed it had CWM, which i opened and tried to flash cyanfox with it...and it flashed without errors but still stuck at boot logo screen!!
What's the problem here??
I used to own a phone, then i knew XDA....since then i have a spaceship!

Default Solved

Thanks, but i found the solution to my problem.
Actually i had multiple problems:
  • 4.4 ROMs will flash but will not boot.
  • Some ROMs will not even flash giving error in CWM (status 6, status 7 ).

Regarding the first problem, i found a thread mentioning that Kitkat ROMs are not all supported by CWM (Sorry i can't seem to find it again :/ ), and that a particular CWM version 6.0.4 will solve that. Too lazy to search for and get, and came across another solution, where aidfarth released his version of a Kernel supporting 4.4 Kitkat, with TWRP instead of CWM which solved the status 7 error.

Further reading is for the other two error solutions.

So i went on and tried to flash that kernel, giving me the status 7 error in CWM, which brings me to the next error.

Regarding the second error, status 7 in CWM, it could be solved by manipulating a script in the ROM or zip in general that you want to flash, this link will demonstrate, it's what i followed.
So i followed, edited the ZIP file and whatnot, then i tried to flash it in CWM, then got the status 6 error.
This will require the same steps as how you solved the status 7, but it has to do with UNIX encoding, this link is what i followed.

Thanks all for replies.
