Instructions
Wipe system, cache, data and dalvik cache. If you do not you may have issues.

Flash ROM - You need a custom recovery and will lose custom recovery after update.
DO NOT REBOOT
Flash SuperSU

If you get an error with flashing about loki then do not worry. ROM is ok and will boot. It just can't add loki to boot.img so it gives error but no big deal.

If you boot loop than doing a factory reset in recovery my fix it.

Reboot and Enjoy KK with Root :)

Sounds great, thanks!

I'm gonna give it a try, even though I have a 16gb model.

How come the ROM is so small, 179mb?

edit: oops, I'm sorry. I just thought it wouldn't start downloading if it wasn't complete..

I'm still downloading it, but it's pretty slow. I'll let you guys know if it works in an hour or two.

Note sure...I used the German KDZ that was posted before...

I do not have 802 to test, just 800. I flashed it on my 800 and it worked. I think 32...

Hey, if you get a chance could you post one for the 16GB version?
We'll find out in 8 hours if it works though.. - 117 KB/s - 10.4 MB of 1.7 GB, 8 hours left

Also suggest you post a mirror! The current download is painful.

Thank's anyway though :good:

    i Make One For d802 16GB 100% No Bootloop i well upload it soon i just want remove some S**** in the rom and add some stuff
    6
    Some improvements and changes which i noticed , few of them have been mentioned before , compiling them all -

    1. Pretty noticable speed improvement all over the whole UI , Opening apps is much faster , and KNOCK ON works much faster , loading and browser speed is faster than before
    2. All Wifi problems are gone , download speed is a bit better , there is much more stability and improved network strength, push notifications are instant now on screen off (stand by) , which was a issue i faced on jellybean ,
    3. You can now press anywhere on an empty area on the pulled down notification panel to pull it back upwards , as opposed to jellybean in which we had to touch the lower portion to pull it back upwards, thus now there is an added convenience
    4. When u pull down the notification panel, The time and date is now mentioned on the top of the notification bar along with the setting menu which is also now moved to top
    5. Miracast works better now , there is a smoothness in screen mirroring now , probably due to the kitkat wifi driver , less lag and more stabilty again
    6. No ART in developers option
    7. Wireless printing is now in the settings menu
    8. Now there is full transparency on the notification panel and the navigation bar , no matter what launcher u use , (am using the google now launcher, works perfect)
    9. Significant improvement in battery life , more screen on time and better charging time
    10. For the with the bug on auto brightness , its fixed now
    11.The GPS setting on the quick panel settings is now replaced with "LOCATION" consisting of high accuracy,device only, power saving options for battery management and accuracy
    12. Quadrant score has dropped a bit , but in actuall use ..device works better
    13. immersion mode works on a few apps , comes handy
    14. Adobe flash broken (an old kitkat issue) can be resolved by using dolphin browser and a patched flash.apk, search google for more info

    I will update if i find something more :)



    Sent from my LG-D802 using xda app-developers app

    I think in updater-scrit is wrong

    package_extract_file("tz.bin", "/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/tz");

    in flashable fils has tz.img

    Let me look and I will fix it up. That might be causing the issues. Sorry guys!!!

    OK that seems to be the issue and I am uploading file now. I am also using a mirror. Sorry guys.

    Can we get a list of models on which this worked?
