If take look for your log:
[000019C8]8e4bcaf6        0.05        Missmatching image and device
i think - you have fake!

The first check is a fake - you can not install the new Rom MIUI.
Check the screenshot. 1080x1920?
If Yes, then go to "Menu developers" to include "location indicator" (13 switch from top). Put your finger in the upper left corner of the screen - is 0,0, then swipe to the bottom right corner of the screen - if there are no coordinates 1080.1920 - it is a fake.

nope, didn't helped here :(
ok ... some update:
had manually to flash a CWM recovery, to delete the partitions related to system/system1, re-create them, flash some old rom, flash the stock recovery, put the KK zip file on the storage and flash it from the stock recovery, TWICE.
and it only took me a day to figure it out ... :\
and for another question:
that xposed part, when it will be removed from the weeklies/daylies ?

Hi, they use different ones. The current developer version is only for TD.
