Post [Q] Recovery issues, cm 10.1 & cm 11.

So, i recently jumped into the custom ROM scenario and everything related to unlocking+rooting. Within the last 3-4 days, i installed cm 10.1, and then found cm 11 and upgraded. (Thanks to Mustaavalkosta) There are certain questions that i have in mind:

1. So, when i installed cm 10.1, all apps got synced and were installed to my phone automatically as i installed gapps, i made backup with clockwork recovery. Then the next day i clean installed cm 11, neither did my apps were synced with this other gapps for 4.4.2 and the second issue i had belonged to recovery. I accidentally locked my phone by using screen security pin and i couldn't unlock it. In a state of panic i thought of using Clockwork restore to 10.1 from 11. After restoring and rebooting, first came the boot screen, and then all i had was a non-responsive black screen . Why so?

2. Comparing 10.1 and 11, 10.1 was really fast and smooth and everything was working. In 11, i had to install google camera etc, but the issue here is that its really slow. WHY IS THAT SO?

3. What are the best running ROMs right now, preferably JB and KITKAT based.

Thanks .

1. What the state of your phone bootloader?, still s-on or already s-off?
If still s-on.. did you not forget to flashing the boot.img too after restoring that rom?

2. Not sure about this.. maybe you try asking it in the rom thread it self..

3. Just try it your self what the rom that is suitable with you.. because the best think from someone is not mean always might be the best for you too..
