Disclaimer:
THIS IS FOR D800 only. Please do not ask if I will make it for another device. If I have time and feel like it I will or you can use this ROM as a model to create your own. I am doing T-Mobile next and will try to do a model a day for the next few days.

Please follow instructions step by step. This method is a hacked together method to get a different ROM on device and not paying attention to instructions may result in you wasting time restoring to stock. Complete instructions will be listed and PLEASE do not clog thread by asking questions that have the answers in this first post. If you do ask questions that already have answers in this first post then you agree to PayPal me $100 within 24 hours of asking your question ;)

ROM Info:
MUST HAVE KITKAT BASEBAND (MODEM, RADIO or whatever you want to call it)
Allows use of custom recovery.
Working Google Wallet.
No CarrierIQ.
No AT&T bloat.
Modified LG Stock firmware based on D80220a - KOT49I. Almost all Google Apps and LG Apps have been removed. You may find a list of removed files HERE. Below in Download section you can find a zip file that is NOT flashable with all removed files. You may use ADB to push files to device and set proper permissions or you may use a file explore with root privileges. Please do not clog thread with questions regarding ADB, root file browsers or setting proper permissions. There are many guides already available.

Custom recovery - It is not a new recovery, it is the current version. The ROM is a mix and match of 4.2.2 images and 4.4.2 images with 4.4.2 system image. The kernel and the mix bag if images allows use to use 4.4.2 while maintaining custom recovery.

Besides the bloat removal this ROM is pretty much stock and looks stock. This is for the user who wants to use a stock ROM without all the crap and customize how user would like.

LG Keyboard is removed and Google Keyboard is default. Google Home Launcher has been added along with Google startup and shutdown animations. View removed file list for other files that have been removed.

YOU MAY NEED TO USE THE CUSTOM DLL FILE BELOW FOR WHEN/IF YOU USE TOT FILE TO RETURN TO STOCK!!! The reason for this is because some D80220a references needed to stay in build.prop and LG Flash will not flash D800 firmware on device when it thinks it is D802. After you return to stock using TOT method you can use the regular DLL file or keep using the custom DLL file. The download for it can be found in the download section below.

New ROM discussion starts HERE. Page 66 of thread.

Change Log:
V2.2 --> V2.5
Updated base ROM to international to D80220d build. Includes knock on.
Remove Google Keyboard since the PlayStore version is causing conflicts with the LG Keyboard.
Some clean up...

V2.1 --> V2.2
Fixed GApps issue.
APN file updated to have preset APN settings for more providers. Tethering still working.
V2.1 --> V2.2
Fixed Tethering issue

V2 --> V2.1
Custom recovery will now be maintained when flashing ROM.
APN file has been updated so if you are using D800 on another service besides AT&T it should place the correct APN settings.

Instructions: THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THIS POST!!!
Download files
Place files on phone
Boot into recovery - I am using TWRP 2.6.3.3 so if you are using something different and have issues then please use TWRP 2.6.3.3 before posting any questions.
Wipe:
Advance wipe
Select
[X] Dalvik Cache
[X] System
[X] Data
[X] Cache
Install:
ROM File <---Must be first
Conversion file <--- Must be flashed after ROM file. Will add root, busybox, modified build.prop to reflect D800 better and delete all LG and Google bloat.
This will take some time so be patient. If you receive Loki error that is OK and phone will boot.
Wipe Cache/Dalvik Cache
Reboot System
Enjoy!!!

Basically the RX7 Digital Volume : 1:60 can be changed to 1:60( 61-67)dependent on phone hardware. I found 1:64 work best for me

Thanks for the ROM! I'm confused though.. I see 4 roms by you in 3 threads in the AT&T section. Which one is going to be updated, or will they all? I see:

- AT&T stock debloated (with CIQ)
- Korean debloated with tweaks
- Korean debloated withOUT tweaks
- International debloated with tweaks

How do the Korean advanced and International versions differ? Sorry if it's obvious, but I'm just looking for more clarification. Thanks

I'll try to help out here a bit.
AT&T stock debloated, first attempt. CIQ probably means dead
Korean debloated, with tweaks still possible support, without consider it a base.
International, latest and greatest, probably new base, but AOSP seems to really be androids interest, like many others. These are just assumptions, but I would wager on it mostly. I can tell you that the international is ridiculously smooth, he's done a great job with it.

Thanks. Should this sit at the LG logo for a long time during the initial boot after flashing?

After flashing this, I'm just stuck at the LG boot logo forever. How can I get back to recovery? Was this supposed to happen? Thanks!

to get back in recovery you need to power all of the way down, hold power and volume down wait for the lg logo, release and then hold them down again. you will see factory reset, hit power, then hit it again.

You need to wipe your dalvik cache and cache, most people simply do a factory reset, but I go the extra step and wipe both again. Hope this helps.

How is this puppy handling for you all? I was debating between this and CleanROM. Obviously CleanROM has a lot of positive feedback and this thread is pretty bare. How is it treating you all? Bugs?

This is a stripped version, minus pretty much all LG software, this is day one of the build so I can't say on battery life, but it is fast. In line with the Canadian ROM, Scott released. I'll report be sack on battery life this evening

Thank you. When I did this (saw factory reset, hit power, hit power again), it went to a TWRP screen but only for a second, then kick back out. I couldn't read what it was doing. Unfortunately I can't get back to TWRP though. Before this happened, I had wiped system/cache/dalvik and flashed this ROM. It went through perfectly. However, then it prompted to install SuperSU (in a TWRP interface). I chose Yes, and then it froze up. That's what started this.

EDIT: Tried this again, and it goes into TWRP and resets factory settings, but it kicks right back out and goes to LG logo again with the flashing blue/green LED. Is there a way to kick it to TWRP by having it plugged into the computer?

Is this replacing your Korean/att modified build?

Sent from my LG-D800 using Tapatalk now Free

Yes I think so for now since this is going to be my daily driver. I am going to be doing a 1.1 version soon.

More bloat removed, zip file size is down to ~800megs
Removed LG Home and replacing it with CM Launcher
Cleaned out settings package to remove home and lockscreen options
modified thermal threshold settings to match the Korean version
SMS/MMS screen wake disabled
Stock Android system fonts enabled
Some other stuff I can not think of right now...

I may do the menu to recent apps key mod but I think it is best to leave that option to Xposed.

Just to make sure you have ATT model and downloaded the ATT ROM?

    Guys we will have KitKat with custom recovery in a little bit, once I update the zip files. Thanks to @Savoca. I am so beat and tired but I will push through to create nice flashable zip for all you users.

    Sorry but you will need to downgrade to 10d and start the process all over again :(

    Crap I just sent my phone into bulk mode! Too tired to fix now.

    Will have to wait until tomorrow. Had such a long day at work and cant deal with this crap now.

    Give me an hour and I have update for this ROM that lets you retain custom recovery.
