Default [KERNEL] Stock KitKat kernels & White Lines issue fix

Stock KitKat Kernel


Info
You guys already know our G2's issue with LG's official KitKat upgrade. It forces us to use the new bootloader which is loki-killer, that means no custom recovery (CWM, TWRP, Philz), no custom kernel anymore. Right now there's no way to bypass that new bootloader in order to install those stuff. Anyway we still have a workaround to deal with that issue by patching the new kernel so it can work with the old bootloader (which still has loki support) thanks to @JackpotClavin, @Savoca, @xdabbeb

Upgrade to KitKat
For best experience with KitKat, you should follow these steps:
  • Upgrade to KitKat first (KDZ/TOT/OTA)
  • Root by ioroot25
  • Use AutoRec to have recovery
Then you can flash any ROM you like

*D801 must root before taking KitKat OTA

Return To JellyBean
It's real simple when you wanna return to your old ROM or your NAND backup (JB base). All you need is downloading the old JB Baseband and flash it, then your ROM / backup. You can find old JB Baseband here in @autoprime 's thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2451426

White lines issue
Some devices use different panel hardware (JDI instead of LGIT) and you will have white lines after using patched kernel. You must use those kernel with "_jdi" in its name. More info: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=122

*Special thank to all the DEVs here in XDA that involved in the KitKat research.

A noob question, what if, after update to KK baseband an ROM, want to go back to JB.

Is it enough just to flash JB ROM/restore JB backup ROM or need to restore via download mode + JB's kdz file?

Quick question, since in the d803 canadian g2 on 4.2.2 i can flash tmo d801 basebands just fine and they work excellent, would it be a possibility for you to make a test d803 canada kitkat kernel so we can test with tmo 4.4 basebands?

Tried this with the G Pro 2 port. Works awesome! Uber stock Rom, root and recovery, can't be better.

So i just have to flash the KK Baseband ? ( I am on Philz with Stock 4.2.2 ) . Then just download any rom and flash via Philz ? and then i can go back to my nandroid of 4.2.2 ?

Do i need to flash the patched kernel as well ?

Thanks a lot for this!

I guessing that if we flash one of the root patched Stock ROMs all we need do is flash the ROM, then the patched kernel, then reflash the recovery again. Once done it should all work as before?

This is a thread for devs to use these in their KK Roms. Do not just flash this in recovery with any random KK rom. Wait for devs to release new Roms
