So I've tried all of the cyanogenmod 11 ROM files I could find and all of them have led to a bootloop. Maybe someone could come up with a reason as to why this keeps happening.

Maybe I should give up on cyanogenmod and find a different ROM to try. I am pretty confident that I did everything correctly but it never works.

BTW I am new to rooting and flashing ROMs and all of that stuff.

If you're trying the official CM nightlies or M builds, you need to be on the JB baseband. They haven't updated to true KK source yet so if you're running a KK baseband, they won't boot. The only other ROM that's still using JB stuff is Dirty Unicorns. So you could try literally any other ROM and it would work fine. There's an unofficial CM11 build based on KK source in the VZW android dev section. That one should boot for you. But official CM will not unless you flash a JB baseband, which isn't worth it.
