Default Cyanogen-11 stuck while booting (yes, I googled)

Hi, everybody!
I am stuck with the problem, I cannot solve, and cannot google.
I saw a lot of similar, but none of the directions helped me to fix my phone.

I've got my Nexus 4 which was a great phone until I updated it to 4.3, some of the screen portions became senseless on some applications (starting from SMS, to some game apps).

I was suggested to downgrade or change ROM, which I am trying to figure out right now.

I've rooted my phone with SuperSU-v1.85 and installed Clockwork-6.0.4.3.
Once I've done it, I was trying to load an images of cm-11 and gapps-4.4 with
adb push
it finished all operations in cmd, however, I got
E: Can't mount /sdcard

Thus, I've tried to install all zips from sideload and my cmd.

I didn't touch kernel.

Once I've done this, I tried to reboot, but Cyanogen stuck, running circles.
I've tried to do factory reset, clear cache and dalvik, however none of those worked.

I also have been doing this with a more stable release (cm-10.2.0), but I got same thing.

I've tried stock ROM 4.2.2, flashed it with flashall.bat, stupidly, it works.
However, what is the problem with the custom ROMs?
Do I do something wrong?

ps. screen is still unresponsive in some areas.

Maybe you'll have better luck with TWRP 2.6.3.3.

Just put the files directly onto the phone either by downloading them on it or transferring normally over USB.

Reboot into recovery

From here you got options but to make it simple do a full wipe. A full wipe is deleting everything but your internal storage. That includes / system /data and everything else your recovery shows but the internal storage. Then just flash the ROM zip and gapps zips from your internal storage after the wipe and reboot

If you delete your internal storage you will wipe out the zips you just put there. Along with your media. Pictures music and whatever else is on there

Wiping your data will wipe your apps. So if you want, back them up with something like titanium backup prior. They will still be there after you flash the custom rom as long as you don't wipe your internal storage.
