You can use kitkat roms but you need a different recovery for that.

1: copy the desired rom to the sdcard and change the recovery. Make a full wipe and install the rom, flash the boot.img via Fastboot and reboot

2: flash any NON kitkat rom. Make a full wipe, install the rom and flash the boot.img via fastboot

My phone works again and I used the beanstalk 4.4.2
THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Now if you can tell me what's the 4.4.2 rom I can put on my phone and forget about flashing it for the next 3-4 months would be great

Cant tell which one, there is no such thing as a best rom. All roms has different options and features that a user needs or not.

But good it works again !
