Wish you all the luck in the world!

@MatsPunt

The Kernel Compiled Fine and CWM Works Fine but the Kernel wont boot Android.

Could you do this, I think TWRP Might be easier. I have found theese instructions that might work:

A boot.img consists of the kernel image and the ramdisk (additionally and optionally RPM.bin and commandline). If you want to use TWRP for some other kernel, you have to do this
1. decompile this boot.img (for 2011 models it's a true boot.img, for 2012 models, it's actually a kernel.elf file renamed to boot.img, so you have to decompile accourdingly. you can use my kernel kitchen to do the same)
2. replace the kernel zImage with the one from the kernel you want to port to
3. replace /sbin/ramdisk.cpio with the "UNCOMPRESSED" ramdisk of the kernel you want to port this to. (usually ramdisk is compressed with gzip i.e. ramdisk.cpio.gz. you need to uncompressed ramdisk image i.e. ramdisk.cpio)
4. do not touch anyother thing
5. pack it up into a boot.img (for 2011) or kernel.elf (for 2012) and fastboot it

Please can you give it a go.

You do know that he does this for free, has no compulsion, and even he does build a fully working build, he's not required to share it with you? And that you can download the CM11 source yourself and do everything, if you want CM11 so much?

Come on; by saying this, you're saying that he was supposed to make CM11 for you. That's like going to a "free lemonade" stall, seeing that their lemonade isn't available at the time, then saying, "I expected better of you."

Sorry if you find this a bit rude; didn't mean to offend you or anything, I apologize if I did.
