I did it a year ago, and took no effort. Now it seems impossible.

I suppose the bootloader is still locked, and no one found a way around it?

And I can't install any sort of recovery on my phone, it won't even enter recovery mode at all it just enters download mode. someone please help Im very frustrated

The boot loader is still locked. So, no custom recovery and kernel. The only working recovery is safestrap.

There are lot of ROMs that can be flashed. For more info - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2616221

before i go further, any recommendation on which one of those kitkat roms to use? I just want to have the most bloatware removed with the most optimized performance, obviously...

first things first... what bootloader are you on? if mf3 or newer you have to use safestrap recovery, mdl or older can use several different recoveries and the Loki exploit.
