This thread started as a discussion for development of a working CM11.0 / KitKat build for GT-I9295 / S4 Active International. At first, with assistance from a CM dev who wishes to remain unnamed and does not want involvement with this, a build was produced for this device, based on work previously done by LeJay on CM10.2. Unfortunately, I have not been able to contact LeJay, which is the primary motivation for starting this thread. Since then, and in a short space of time, xda user @spegelius, has managed to progress this to a fully functional build, which some users are already using as a daily driver.
After much hard work from pretty much everyone except me, it pleases me to write that this device has reached official status, and as such one can obtain nightly builds, updates, and source code, from the official CyanogenMod sources. Congratulations to all involved, and the effort thats been put in to make this happen.
1. Install CWM recovery from TODO: link official CWM here
2. Download the latest official nightly from: http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?device=jactivelte

3. Download CM11.0 gapps from here
4. Boot into recovery by holding the Volume Up button as the phone is booting.
5. Back up your current ROM inside CWM recovery.
6. Flash CyanogenMod ROM to your device using CWM recovery.
7. Flash Google Applications to your device using CWM recovery.
8. Do a wipe data/factory reset from within CWM recovery.
9. Reboot system.
1. None that I'm currently aware of.
2. Report them. Keeping this part up to date has proven to never actually happen, so maybe just read through the entire thread. Convenient right?
Build from source:
Please consult this guide for setting up CyanogenMod for compile.
repo init -u git://github.com/CyanogenMod/android.git -b cm-11.0
Run 'repo sync' and compile with 'brunch jactivelte'. Proprietary files you can find on github, or extract them from an existing rom.
This is pretty much a word for word ripoff of LeJay's cm 10.2 post. This is where one would say something like, I take no responsibility if your device explodes, catches fire, invades a foreign nation, causes your cat to get run over by a car, etc.
Thanks goes to LeJay for being pretty much the sole reason a thread was created for this device on XDA, and in turn the people he gave thanks to, primarily the CM team. Additional thanks, of course, goes to spegelius, for running with this thread, and creating something that actually works.
