Read the stickies... If you are asking this question then you need to read more on flashing roms or you could brick your device look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...imate-t1911726 <<.... You need to do a full wipe to install or you will have issues

(1) First rule of flashing roms BACK UP YOU EFS!!
(2) 2nd Rule of flashing roms SEE 1ST RULE!!

(3) EFS Issue look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...uding-t2393289
(4) Rescue Firmware look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...35&postcount=6

I am familar with installing custom roms all i want to make sure is that is it ok to install a custom rom based on 4.3 JB over CM11 which is based on 4.4.2 because I've come across some threads where it was mentioned that downgrading can brick my device.
