Announcement from bauner: CM11 Final edition V2 (20151004) with many Bugfixes
By working on my NightOwl Lollipop Rom for the GT-N7000 I found many Bugs which also exists in the official CM11 nightly's.
Because of many users want to stay on KitKat I have made a final CM11 version with many Bugfixes

Code:
Use my Roms only if you are sure about the risks of flashing custom Roms/Kernel to your device. I'm is not responsible for any damage caused by using one of my files.
Changes/Fixes to official CM11:
20151004:

This version fixes the not working Wifi Hotspot in the 20150909 version
-Fixed a wifi tethering configuration problem
-Updated Wifi drivers
-A few smaller kernel updates

20150909:

Based on the latest cm11 sources with the stagefright patch
Use my kernel based on the stock samsung JB source with many updates (because the smdk4412 seems to be the reason for the random freezes and reboots)
The kernel is built with GCC 4.4.3 for stability reasons
Added extra free kbytes to reduce direct reclaim
Added trim support
Fixed a bug that the cpu would never go below 500Mhz after recording a (HD) video which caused heating and battery drain
Fixed a bug which causes that the thermal management could fail in some conditions (This can cause device heating and can damage the device in the worst case)
Fixed some videos will only play audio
Fixed the permission problems if the sdcard is ext4 formated (but you should use vfat!)
Updated power_profiles
Fine tuned lmk values
Fine tuned dalvik settings
Enabled multithreaded dexopt
Use ROW as default I/O scheduler
Removed cm updater
Do not mount the unsused preload partition
Switched to Philz recovery which can handle cwm and twrp backups
NightOwl bootanimation


How to Install:

If you are running a custom Kitkat 4.4 Rom:

1. Copy Rom + Google Apps to your sdcard.
2. Boot into recovery
3. Factory Reset + Format the /system partition
4. Flash the Rom and Gapps.
5. Reboot

The steps to install it from an stock samsung rom are:

If you have already an samsung 4.1.x running you can skip step 1

1.flash N7000ZSLR1_N7000OZSLR1_BRI (or any other other 4.1.2) stock rom using odin
2.Copy Rom + Google Apps to your sdcard.
3.flash PhilZ-cwm6-XXLT6-XSA-5.06.1.tar.md5 (http://devhost.xda-developers.com/OTu) to get cwm recovery by using odin or mobile odin (To download click the blue Download now button)
4. boot into recovery
5. flash this kernel https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=95887005526788121 to get an updated cwm recovery
(this step will make your old rom unbootable stuck in the n7000 screen but you can boot into recovery with press and hold "home" and "volume+" buttons and power on your phone)
6. you need to reboot! your device now to recovery
7. you are now in the updated recovery and you can now install the rom and gapps and do a factory reset
8. Reboot

The kernel supports zRam but it is not enabled in the rom.
If you want to enable it you need to do it yourself.
I don't know if the kernel will work on omni 4.4.4. If you want to try it you should backup the rom in the recovery

Like @j4m said this rom has great batter backup for more than one hour screen off time with wifi on battery hasn't gone even 1% down and that's awesome. @bauner do you think you can implement battery saving mode on this rom ?
