After many hours work I've managed to get a rooted Kitkat on my phone.
I'm using an international D802 16GB version of the phone .
I live in Belgium and i used the german vodafone firmware to get all work done , but I suppose this firmware will work fine in other countries too ?
Everything is working fine , and I have a rooted Kitkat rom (vodafone).

Quote:

NO touch screen issues here !
Xposed NOT working , because xposed needs to update for the official KK roms

----------------
If you updated to Kitkat , then follow all steps.
If you are on a rooted JB , you can start at step 4


1 : Flash the JB firmware from vodafone http://lg-phone-firmware.com/tool.php?idclick=8809 to get back to JB rom (needed to get root and recovery)
Quote:

If you have NO SIM icon , just proceed with the steps , you will get your sim connection back on the KK rom

It seems to be confirmed that you can start with ANY rom as far as you have custom recovery installed , so start with a 4.2 rom is good to go !

2 : Install root with ioroot22 : http://bit.ly/1nQXY0U

3 : Install recovery (I always use TWRP 2.6.3.3) with this nice tool (you can choose phone version and then choose between TWRP or CWM recovery versions)
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2633941

4 : Download and copy the following zip to your phone storage (sdcard)

16GB version : D802KK16GB

32GB version : D802KK32GB

5 : Download http://download.chainfire.eu/382/Sup...erSU-v1.93.zip and copy it to your phone storage (sdcard)

6 : Reboot to recovery

7 : Wipe Dalvik cache , System , Data and cache -- Very important step !

8 : Install D802KK....zip you downloaded in step 4

9 : Wipe Data again

10 : Install UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.93.zip

11 : Reboot

Now you have a rooted Kitkat Stock rom (Vodafone Germany) , enjoy it !!!

Unless you still have a custom recovery, this is easily achievable by rooting a stock jellybean rom then taking an ota update to kitkat whilst keeping root via a setting in the superSU app. It is a working custom recovery which cannot be achieved so far and also the ability to root a stock kitkat rom.
I am assuming that you don't have a custom recovery on your rom of course??

You're right, but many of us haven't recieved the OTA update yet. The hell, I've never actually got any OTA update, so this is the only method to have a rooted KitKat for me. And probably for others, too.

Of course, custom recovery will be gone.

As we all know you will have NO recovery , but it will be ROOTED !

And about the OTA , mine was not working , and for the people who still have to wait for their update it could be a nice solution .

BTW : I'm very happy with the kitkat update , because my phone is working much faster and smoother then on JB
And at this moment I only need root and no recovery. I needed the root to use some nice apps in example to remove bloat

Yes, for me it is! Thanks OP, had flashed many other rooted kitkat roms, but this is the first one that works without the touch screen bug.
