Before performing step 3 “Rooting”, option B:
After Restarting Android, go to Settings > About Phone and tap Build number 7 times to activate developer mode. Then go to Settings > Developer Options and enable USB Debugging so you can push files to the device.
To get CyanogenMod 11: http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?device=hammerhead&type=snapshot
To get Google Apps (GApps): http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Gapps
(Put CM11 and GApps in /sdcard/0 on the phone with

sudo adb push file /sdcard/.

(Yes, this will put them in /sdcard/0.)
