Default [Q] Going from CleanRom 3.5 to CM 11 Nightlies

Hi, everyone.

I haven't updated my GN2 for a long time.

I just checked my phone, and it currently sports CleanRom 3.5, which is 4.1.2 with VRAMC3.

I gleaned from some FAQS and posts that I do not want the 4.3 OTA update since there's no way to unlock it yet.

Is there a step that I should go through first before flashing CM 11? Or can I just follow the instruction there.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
INSTRUCTIONS
First time installing CyanogenMod 11.0 to your Galaxy Note 2 I605, or coming from another ROM:
- Read known issues ans FAQs
- Flash the latest official ClockworkMod-Recovery
- Copy GApps and CM11.0 ZIPs to your SDCard
- Boot into Recovery
- Flash CM11.0 zip from SDCard
- Flash GApps zip from SDCard
- DO A DATA WIPE / FACTORY RESET (otherwise your device will be stuck at boot)
- Reboot
- Don't restore system data using Titanium Backup!
- Restoring Apps + Data might cause problems and is not recommended, avoid it if possible!
-------------------------------------------------------

Also, according to the instruction, Titanium Backup is not recommended. Is there an alternative that works well with CM 11?
Maybe Mybackup Pro?

I'd appreciate your suggestions and tips.

Thanks.

A few notes that might help:

1. You can use TWRP instead of ClockworkMod if you want, just make sure your using latest version.
2. just do not forget the data wipe / factory reset. (TWRP wipes data with factory reset)
3. I use Titanium Backup and it works fine. I will explain the warning a bit for you. First of all it's never a good idea to restore system apps period, especially from another rom. Restoring user apps works fine if your backups are already 4.3/4.4, I restore my apps every time i do a clean install of CM11 and it works fine. However you are coming from older rom, so what I recommend is to only restore apps you absolutely need the data from, and test them. if they crash just uninstall and re-install from play store, problem solved.

I just did it, and it went without a hitch.

1) I first downloaded Goomanager and updated my TWRP to the latest version.
2) Then I just followed the instruction on the CM11 post.
3) Voila! I got Kitkat!

Thanks for the help!
