Default [SOLVED] Im having a hard time installing kitkat roms, helppp

Heyyy, so i just came back to android and felt like flashing some kitkat roms so as to enjoy those cool features kitkat offers..i'm currently running stock 4.1.2 JB.

as far as im concerned, first i should flash a rooted+cwm kernel through odin (which i flashed latest siyah for JB)... that went smooth and i got rooted and got cwm, problem is when i want to actually install any rom... I continually get "installation aborted" and the only way to make my phone usable again is to flash a stock firmware through odin.

any ideas ? thanks !

PD: I tried installing the "kitkat cwm compatible" thingy both through odin and through cwm, it did flash correctly, but phone fails to boot. if you dont get this last thing.. its this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2546597

hope anyone out there can give me a hand since im tired of running stock :'(

You can flash philz kernel on to of your stock JB to get root and recovery (no need to use Odin, you can flash through standard recovery). Then do a backup of your rom and after that flash a cwm-recovery >6.0.4.x (this is needed to be able to install s KitKat ROM). Boot directly after flashing into that recovery, wipe system and data and install KitKat.

I've got more information there.
Do you know what firmware you installed?
Or you can flash dorimanx kernel through Odin. It also gives you root access. Download this:
Kernel_Dorimanx-V8.43-[12-21]-[24-10]-TAR-FOR-ODIN.tar
If you don't know how to flash it through Odin, look in the op of the dorimanx kernel thread. Just above the download links it's explained.
After that follow the instructions from AndDiSa by flashing a kitkat compatible cwm etc.
