Hello LG L9 II (D605) users. Here's a thread what people can easily find when googling and here's a quick overview what's available.

Your warranty is most likely now void. Unless you are in EU.
I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed.
Please do some research if you have any concerns about the instructions or the linked things before doing anything!
YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you and I promise, I will!



If you need help feel free to ask here! But if you ask something that's written here I am a bit mad at you, but I will try to still help you.

[Commonly asked questions]

[Q] How to update to KK?
[A] If you have root and CWM install the flashable .zip. If you have stock unrooted JB use OTA.

[Q] How to root the stock KK rom?
[A] 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!)

[Q] I have a bricked device (softbrick with no CWM), how to fix?
[A] Install the stock JB .kdz or stock KK .kdz.

[Q] I have a bricked device (hardbrick), how to fix?
[A] Try smashing it into a wall (It's a joke). (How have you managed to hardbrick it?)

[Q] I have other questions or things related to LG D605, what to do?
[A] Share your news or problems with D605 in this thread.

[Q] Is XPosed framework working on stock roms?
[A] Yes, Xposed framework is working on both JB and KK stock roms.

[Q] How to install a .kdz?
[A] (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. Download link is under the "Downloads"

#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)

NOTE: .kdz is a .kdz, you cannot extract it. If you get a .zip from the LG .kdz site you did something wrong.


[Q] How to boot to CWM without root?
[A]
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)

[Q] How to downgrade to stock JB(without CWM)?
[A] Flash the .kdz

[Q] Unable to mount /data in CWM, how to fix?
[A] You most likely entered the recovery trough hard reset combo, 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.

[Q] What's the difference between v20a and v20b(or v20c) .kdz?
[A] 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.

[Q] How to enable USB debugging on KK rom?
[A] Go to "About phone" menu and click the build number repeatedly to access developer settings.

[Q] I am unable to format /data in CWM, how to fix it?
[A] You most likely entered the recovery via Factory Reset combination (don't do that) and you deleted the /data partition. To fix format /data and /data/media .

[Q] How to downgrade to JB?
[A] Install JB .kdz (available from the link provided, either v10a or v10b)

[Q] I want to install CM 11, what should I wipe before install?
[A] Everything exept External SD

[Q] I am unable to install CWM with the method Varcain has provided, how to fix?
[A] Post the error here. (If you got "invalid path" then http://lmgtfy.com/?q=file+path and open the wikipedia thread)

[Q] How to install CWM on Stock KK?
[A] *in progress*

[Q] Why isn't there any sound coming from the second "speaker" from the bottom?
[A] Because one of the "speakers" is actually a microphone. (One of the stereo speakers is at the top, one at the bottom of the phone)

[Q] What should I wipe to install Cyanogenmod?
[A] Wipe everything except external SD. (including /data/media - internal storage, to avoid storage losses and ensure smooth experience)

It might be the fact that the widgets are build into the launcher and available only from the stock launcher. Like GO Launcher has some.

There is always a chance that you can lose your data. So better backup before update.
