Default Doubt G2 LG ls980

Hello brothers, I have a little doubt. I'm really loving the LG smartphone, since now I'm thinking about changing my LG optimus g PRO, for G2 LG ls980. Well, I had read many topics on this model G2, and say there is no unlock for it through IMEI, now my question is: Is it possible to unlock LG LS980 G2 via IMEI, and android 4.4.2?

Another question: how to put android 4.4.2 ls980?

I await your response, and if I can help much better. Thank you very much!

I also came from an optimus g pro... Are you saying that you wish to unlock it to use on another carrier? Or root it? If you don't have a custom recovery installed, you should be able to take the ota to get 4.4.2. Its much easier to root when on Kit Kat. Use TowelRoot. Its literally a one-click-method.

I am pretty sure you are speaking about doing the sim unlock, now yes it is true that it cannot be unlocked via imei but there is a way to unlock, you can ota to kitkat or you can grab it from here and then sideload it from stock recovery afterwards just follow this guide to do the permanent sim unlock

p.s. all questions go in the q&a section

I am writing this on my SIM unlocked LG G2 LS980 working on AT&T. 4G speeds aren't that wonderful, but it is working well otherwise. I didn't do the IMEI unlock; I simply followed the instructions that you will find by searching the threads. Sorry I don't list the redirect. I too fell in love with this phone after purchasing one for my son. I'm using it more than my Note 3!
