,anyway you can start with this

Ok thanks.
So I need to root my device like described in Chainfire's thread I posted (CWM included?) and then flash the build you've given me via the custom recovery, right?

The Gapps links for the CM9 build you've send me don't work and on the open gapps page there are no packages available for 4.0...
Can you help me out?

I need to search my PC for these gapps but still you can google it (ICS gapps). I shall post back if I still have a copy (probably yes).
Root is the first step and with cf auto root you get also the recovery you need to flash the ROM.

I need help please..
Got an old Galaxy GT-i9000 laying around with stock Firmware not rooted and I want to install this ROM.
It says I should first install CM9 on it then flash this ROM.
But I cannot figure out how to install CM9 on it..
I googled and found some tutorials but I cannot even find TWRP for the Galaxy S...
I found this thread by Chainfire (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=788108) but I am a bit confused about it...
Do I need to root my device with cf-auto-root first (custom recovery included??), then flash cm9 and then flash this build of cm11?
Please help me understand!

Flash semaphore kernal 2.7.4 from the official site. And flash this ROM . good luck

I just download the latest rom, and noticed that there is no low ram mode in the mackay setting, and i found nothing of mackay related stuff in data/local. is the option of low ram mode being removed? @kasper_h

-----Edit------
i found it need to apply setting and reboot 1st :p
i may want to ask if i plan to mode to 5.1.1(Code Rom) and reverse back to this rom, will there be any issue of IMEI?

@kasper_h
the gapps link is down for this one..
can I use open gapps for 4.4 too or can you provide a new link please?

EDIT: using latest open gapps 4.4 with this and works fine so far.

I've got heavy wakelocks from google play services and I've tried following fixes regarding this issue.
https://forums.oneplus.net/threads/...wakelocks-without-using-privacy-guard.297792/
None of them worked for me..

Could it be of the gapps I use?

Anyone?
Maybe @kasper_h

This worked for me for me...but only til I rebooted the phone.

I've tried different Gapps packages..all the same.

Any suggestions what I am doing wrong or how I can permanently get rid of the wakelocks caused by google play services?

I think i remember having wakelock in android 4.4.4 back in the days and i think its related to gapps package youre possibly using. bad gapps package or something. Maybe you could try open gapps pico or this gapps

thanks mate for the help!
I've tried like 6 different gapps packages (f.e. open gapps micro/nano/pico) with clean install everytime....
Tried to use Disable Service to en-/disable SystemupdateServbice and disable "keep awake" etc. with cm privacy settings for gps and so on...
I will try the pa_gapps you gave e the link to (tried some other pa_gapps already :D ).
This bug is killing me slowly (and my battery fast).

When this does not help I will try to stop it with xposed and some modules like @iagm12 said I guess.
I've read that the only permanent fix for the drain is using xposed.

    I have been sharing my CM7/CM9/CM10/CM10.1/CM10.2-based builds for some time in several thread, which culminated in the MackayROM. I continue now with KK4.4 from where I was for JB4.3. MackayROM is based on CyanogenMod sources, with several performance enhancements.

    About Cyanogen: CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 4.4 (KitKat), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.
    Disclaimer: I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

    If you run into errors, I may not be able to solve it!

    If you know a solution to a problem, either upload it yourself to Gerrit Code Review or contact me through pm.

    The ROM is based on Cyanogen sources with the following changes:
    -Mackay Kernel:
    -Set of cherries picked from gerrit (differing by the day)
    -Some additional patches I did myself to the source code

    Feature request are OK, but remember:
    1. I try to stay close to stock
    2. I will not include additional apps, unless they can be build from source
    3. The time I spend on features depends on how much I like them myself

    Although it is possible to enable ART, this is not advisable:
    -Takes long to convert from Dalvik to ART on first boot
    -Needs more RAM
    -Can cause soft reboots
    But off course, YMMV -> light users may have better luck

    Changelog of 4.9.14 - 5-Nov-2014
    -CM11.0 codebase of 3-Nov-2014
    -TWRP updated to 2.8.1.0

    Full changelog of 4.9.14 compared to stock CM11.0:
    CM11.0 sources of 3-Nov-2014

    Mackay kernel:
    Separate kernel thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2532813

    TWRP (2.8.1.0):
    -Themed orange
    -Run recovery-apps (zip files should be present in /system/mackay, launch them through advanced->run app)

    Removed apps:
    -VideoEditor & demo VideoFiles

    vendor/cm:
    -Adapt for custom MackayROM building (bootanimation, ROM&file name)
    -Custom bootanimation (Thanks to Malcho)

    vendor/samsung:
    -Added scripts for Mackay Settings

    hardware/samsung:
    -F4k 720p patch for bigmem kernels

    AriesParts (“Mackay Settings” in Settings menu):
    Add mackay kernel settings options:
    >WiFi PM mode selection
    >BLX settings
    >BLN activation
    >Navbar selection
    >Low RAM mode selection

    For other projects (frameworks/base & Settings, check my github for the latest patches)

    Coming from stock Samsung ROM/CM7:
    -The safest way is to flash CM9 first and then flash Mackay ROM. Going directly from Samsung ROM/CM7 to Mackay ROM may lead to loosing IMEI.

    Fresh install:
    Can be flashed on top of any CyanogenMod build:
    -Do a factory reset
    -Flash ROM
    -Flash gapps
    -Reboot your phone

    Update:
    -Flash ROM
    -Reboot your phone
    (no wipes or other things needed, just flash & reboot)

    -Custom kernels can be used only if specific for KK4.4

    Credits:
    -teamhacksung/pawitp for making CyanogenMod work on our ancient phone
    -stratosk/DerTeufel/Mialwe for the inspiration I got from their kernels
    -rootax for providing a high-speed server for high quality downloads
    -Malcho for his kernel splash & bootanimation
