[Commonly asked questions]
How to update to KK?
If you have root and CWM install the flashable .zip. If you have stock unrooted JB use OTA.
How to root the stock KK rom?
Use the method Varcain provided if you have CWM. If not use Towelroot but remeber that you cannot install CWM if you rooted your KK with Towelroot. (When you update to KK via any other method than CWM you lock your bootloader and the only way to unlock is to flash JB.kdz)
I have a bricked device (softbrick with no CWM), how to fix?
Install the stock JB .kdz or stock KK .kdz.
I have a bricked device (hardbrick), how to fix?
Try smashing it into a wall (It's a joke). (How have you managed to hardbrick it?)
I have other questions or things related to LG D605, what to do?

Is XPosed framework working on stock roms?
Yes, Xposed framework is working on both JB and KK stock roms.
How to install a .kdz?
(Tutorial thanks to @[W]ar[H]ead
, confirmed working by TaZRAge)
#1) First to get into download mode:
1. Remove battery
2. Put usb to computer and phone (w/o battery)
3. Hold "Vol up" button
4. Put battery back
You will get into download mode (aka emergency mode).
#2) Unpack kdz flasher, and install msxml.msi.
#3) Run KDZ_FW_UPD.exe set "type" to 3GQCT and "phonemode" to DIAG.
#4) Choose the .kdz file to flash.
#5) Click "Launch software update" and wait. Phone must be connected in download mode(!). KDZ installer might get stuck but DO NOT disconnect it. (Unless it stays that way for a hour as a example).
How to boot to CWM without root?
1. Reinsert battery
2. Hold Power+Vol Up+Home for about ten seconds a white text appears, that says "Release all buttons" you have 500ms time if it reboots start from step 1 again.
YOU HAVE TO BE VERY EXACT! (If you once installed CWM you have it even when you flashed KK .zip)
How to downgrade to stock JB(without CWM)?
Flash the .kdz
Unable to mount /data in CWM, how to fix?
You most likely entered the recovery trough hard reset, that caused the problem. Use vol up+power combo next time, it might be a little harder to enter then but it will not cause any problems then. To fix the problem format /data/media from CWM.
What's the difference between v20a and v20b(or v20c) .kdz?
v20b or v20c might be all branded, it is better to use unbranded versions as carriers may install some bloat or lock some functions. Use v20a OPEN_EU if possible (if you want you may install v20b or c to a unbranded phone too), if you already have branded JB then it may make more sense.
How to enable USB debugging on KK rom?
