Hi,

I'm a complete newbie to this stuff.. I bought my LG Optimus 4x HD P880 here in the Philippines about a year ago. I still got the stock 4.0.3 ICS.

Now I heard great things about KitKat.. I wanted to try it. When I tried to search, I came across these terms that I did not understand completely..
"CWM11 ? or CM11?"
"Flashing"
"ROM"

Basically, I wanted to try this one:
CyanFox ROM

I'm not very sure though, but if anyone could link me or teach me how to get started.. really appreciate that.



thank you so much advance,
Kuodo

ohh dude, you have a lot of info to read about it.... first that all you have to flash V20 Euro Open KDZ to can unlock the bootloader, then you have to root and flash CWM recovery 6.0.4.5, then you can flash cyanfox using the recovery to do that

in this post you can find a tool to do almost everything that i talked above http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2230934

You have all tutoriala you need here on xda but let me make little easyer for you.Firat plug your lg to PC install driver via lg software updater then update to 4.1.2 jb.Then root your device then unlock bootloader then download via market rom manager and install CWM.After that download rom you want and flash it.For every step i described you have detailed tutorial on xda you just need to google it.Step by step and you will make it.I think this is the moust help you will get with your question since it was 5646373829 times asked and people are sick of it.

Thanks.. ill do that..

*EDIT* I was able to upgrade to JB 4.1.2 and root it. My problem now is how to unlock bootloader. I have ESA-XXXX and that 'all in one tool' said that it only works on EUR-XXXX.. Im kinda stuck.

Okay.. I got rom manager now and downloaded CyanFox ROM and GAPPS..

If Hidden Menu says Bootloader Unlocked, that means it is unlocked right?

Because when I tried to Flash CyanFox ROM, it says 'cannot open file'

Here's what I got from report.log

- Installing: /sdcard/Download/CyanFox2.0.2/CyanFox-2.0.2-p880.zip
Finding update package...
I:Update location: /data/media/Download/CyanFox2.0.2/CyanFox-2.0.2-p880.zip
Opening update package...
minzip: Missed a central dir sig (at 0)
E:Can't open /data/media/Download/CyanFox2.0.2/CyanFox-2.0.2-p880.zip
(bad)
Installation aborted.
result was NULL, message is: assert failed: install_zip("/sdcard/Download/CyanFox2.0.2/CyanFox-2.0.2-p880.zip")
I:using /data/media for /sdcard.

Can you open the zip file on your computer? Sounds like a bad download or maybe wrong CWM version.

Yeah.. I wasn't able to. I downloaded again and I am now able to use CyanFox..

Also, I heard about iodak Kernel v9.5. I'm wondering if I needed to install that too? Iodak Kernel v9.5.



Thanks guys..
