After many hours of errors and whatnot, I have finally managed to upgrade my phone to Cyanogen Mod 11-20131207-NIGHTLY-galaxysmtd.

However, there's no play store!

Apparently I'm running android 4.4.1 and CM 11, therefore none of the gapp files are applicable?

I tried installing the latest one, only to get the error: (bad)

And the gapps for CM 11 ??? ==> http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Gapps

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Phone: Samsung Galaxy S I9000 (SGS)
ROM: Running Pawitp`s CyanogenMod 11-Nightly (KITKAT)
Kernel: CM-Kernel

Many Thanks to the amazing Devs here - what would our Galaxy S be without you

Android is great, CM is greater and it gets better and better ...

Exactly what I needed. Many thanks!

And thanks to everyone else who helped, I really thought my phone was busted for a while there.

Root & install CWM recovery: turn off your i9000 and download speedmod-kernel-k13e-500hz.tar
  • Run Odin as admin, set "speedmod-kernel-k13e-500hz.tar" under PDA. Reboot and reset time checked, re-partition unchecked(!!)
  • start your i9000 in download mode with 3-button-combo and connect it via USB cable
  • if <Added!> and ID:COM port number are displayed in Odin, click on "Start"
  • after only few seconds kernel will be flashed and your i9000 will automatically reboot
  • Enjoy, now you can install zips of the CM build and compatible gapps for it via CWM recovery, SpeedMod kernel features CWM version 2xxx so after first attempt to install CM.zip it will upgrade just the CWM recovery to version 6xxx, so after that you can really flash the CMbuild.zip

How would I go about doing this process with Heimdall, as Odin is really not an option anymore
Cool, congratulations!
Please if it helped, just post it in my thread that it helped:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2444308
...and also please post info/workflow how did you solve it with the Heimdall, so that other forum users who are in need can benefit from your experience.

Have lot of fun with the KitKat

I might write up a more in-depth tut later on for those as clueless to the scene as I am, however for now the whole process can be summed up in a few major steps;
  • Down/Upgrade to GingerBread (Android 2.3-2.3.2)
  • Root
  • Install ClockWorkMod
  • Wipe cache/data
  • Install Cyanogenmod
