Well, the first thing you should do is unlock your bootloader, and then you could find the rom you wanted. See the original android development section for further details. Btw I'm not quite sure your device is supported, hence the version (C5306)

Sent from my C5302

well you can try to create a theme like kitkat if you first install existenz then put a kitkat launcher
install Xposed Framwork : install it in app then reboot
Install Gravity box : install it in xposed then reboot
now you got your transparent on screen buttons and nav bar and you have a kitkat launcher
i stayed like this till i unlocked by bootloader and installed CM 11
