Tutorial [SHARE] CM11 Network Trick

Hie Friends I Have News For You... Somehow I Manage to have network on CM11 FXP317... I want to share those steps for you Guys...

Caution...

Steps Are experimental... These steps works for me... Hope they Will work for you too...i'm working On them...

Requirements...

1. XMS with stock 4.3 Rooted With CWM Recovery...
2. CM11 317 or Above (Mine is FXP317) + Gapps

Steps...

1. Boot your 4.3 stock and uninstall all user apps + useless stock apps + Google apps and make your rom clean rooted or you can restore backups of this link

2. Making Maximum free space on Internal Storage is Important otherwise u can not get more installation space on CM11...

3. After this settings boot up in recovery and follow steps below...
wipe cache partition >> Go to mounts and storage >> format data and cache >> Go to Advanced >> format dalvik cache...
(Caution - Don't do wipe data/factory reset or format system or anything which can clean your system partition...)

4. After doing this flash your CM11 Zip directly on base of your 4.3 stock + flash gapps (only if you uninstalled your 4.3 gapps)...

5. After flashing reboot your phone and you will see network on your CM11...

6. In Addition you can use these steps to swap your internal with your SD...

More Tips...

Google apps of our android 4.3 dosent supports in 4.4 cm11 so it is necessary to uninstall all google apps before flashing CM11... otherwise you will get error after flashing CM11...

Credits...

Huh? Uninstalling apps / deleting files from internal storage fully unnecessary for installing CM.
Because it fits only in /system partition, installation process don't care about free space on internal storage.

And anyway you wipe /data from recovery, so all user apps will be surely deleted and there will be full free space.
System apps will be deleted too:

gapps stored in /system partition
With installing CM11 that partition formatted > all deleted > no "base of 4.3 stock"
There no any reason remove it while phone on 4.3

Cause of your error was something other.

Its unnecessary. /system gets wiped when installing CM11. So no use of installing it over 4.3 stock. You just need to boot into 4.3 baseband and then simply, you have the needed baseband for the CM11 builds.
