Hello All, this will update your V500 to 4.4.2, as is mine. This is based off the leaked 4.4.2 tot file.
Thanks AICJOFS for sending me the link to the leaked 4.4.2 official update tot.

Install the Drivers
Be sure usb debugging is ON!


Download the 4.4.2 .TOT file from here:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B34...it?usp=sharing
or here
http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23329332407581518
(Thanks DrGravy for the mirrors!)
or here:
http://goo.gl/BIiHT0 and yes one more for good measure
http://goo.gl/QHrcKm

- I strongly suggest using a download manager like IDM to download this file
in case you have an error with your internet etc, It's 2GB+ in size
that way if you do, it'll continue to download this once you regain your internet connection. Trust me, it's worth it.

Download the .dll file you'll need last here:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B34...it?usp=sharing


DO NOT EXTRACT the .tot file, leave it alone!


Download and install LGFlashTool from here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B34...it?usp=sharing
or here: http://goo.gl/qO1tqB

Download the MegalockDLL file for LGFlashTool here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B34...it?usp=sharing
or here http://goo.gl/oUa37Q

After the LG Flash Tool is installed, do NOT launch it.
-Extract MegaLock.dll from the zip and copy MegaLock.dll to C:\LG\LGFlashTool, replacing the old MegaLock.dll file

Power off your Gpad, plug in the usb into your Gpad (not your computer yet)...
Holding vol Up & Down, plug it into your computer and you should now be in DOWNLOAD mode,

Wait for the drivers to finish installing, after they are, open Device Manager
Scroll down and click Ports, now Right click LGE AndroidNet USB Serial Port (COM2), then properties, then Advanced,
Now change the port # to 41, save and close out device manager

Now unplug your G Pad again from your computer.

Open LG Flash Tool
Select Manual Mode
Click on Add button on S/W field and load the V500 4.4.2 .TOT file
Then click the .DLL field and add the DLL file here. NOT the megalock.dll the First one you downloaded with the tot file.
NOW CLICK THAT YELLOW ARROW up top.
Wait for it to say READY. Once it says Ready plug in your G Pad again, in download mode.

Now As soon as you plug in your G Pad, In Download mode, it'll begin to flash, WAIT for it to say Pass in Blue, and it's done!

You now have a LG G Pad V500 with 4.4.2 Stock Kit Kat


Everything is working as it should be. Including ART!Quick Smooth and Zippy with no lag for me.

Your Welcome.
JESSICA

**** Yes you can have root with this, I used kingo because it was quick and easy ****

--P.S. Since people have been asking me via PM:


**---*** TO GO BACK TO 4.2.2 STOCK EVERYTHING yes including the bootloader, use my new thread HERE:

Thanks a lot for the detailed tutorial!
But I think I'll stay with AOSP for now :P
I hope this can somehow help the GPE ROM, can it?

You're mistaken, the tot link is working fine, I just double checked. It's at 65% uploaded to my Google Drive I'll provide the link there as well once it's finished.

heres the tot link again
