Default [Q] Upgrade from ICS 4.0.3 V10B to Mokee 4.4.2

Hi all...

I have LG P880 with ICS 4.0.3 V10B (from Panama). I know that there is no official Stock JB for my device country. I want to upgrade to 4.4.2 using Mokee ROM (or any other ROM), to solve some issues that I'm having, such as battery and CPU high usage with few apps.

I was reading a lot from this forum and some other place too and I find many confusing and some time contradictory information, and I want to know If the following procedure is correct. This is my first time that I do this. As I have read, I have to backup everything, and I have to do a wipe data, cache and system, also fully charged

1- Upgrade to V20B Europe Open using the software KDZ_FW_UPD_EN with type 3GQC and Diag in Phone Mode, using the kdz V20B_00.kdz from

In this step, I have read that I sholud use V20A not V20B, is it ? I could not find V20A Europe because of broken link. I found an Europe V20A but ending in dz (with a dll) instead of kdz

2) Once upgraded. I should do the "Official bootloader unlock procedure from LG" from this forum to unlock the bootloaded. Seems that this will wipe everytihing.

3) I have to root JB using "Root method for v20a (and probably later) firmware" from this forum

4) Install ClockWorkMod. I found several ways:
a) Using the guide "[JB][412][CWM] ClockWorkMod (FREEDOM for EUR-xxx)" from this forum
b) Installing (after unchecking signed requirement) LG-Optimus-4XHD-Recovery-v1.2.apk also from this forum
c) Same as A but using the file recovery-clockwork-touch-

Which of above is correct ?

4) Upgrade ClockWorkMod using (If I don't do the procedure 4c)

5) I do a complete wipe of data, cache and system

6) Upgrade ROM with
7) Upgrade gapps-kk-20140105-signed,zip

8) Restore SMS and Data.
9) Reinstall apps

Thanks anyone who can guide me

4. Install recovery from official cwm page.
Otherwise your procedure seems fine. Just follow the tutorials
