If you flash E98620a (turkish) then you might wont see 4g option.
If you flash E98820a (asian) then you will get 4g option but only english language
and some asian languages

Ohhh now I see the problem. I flashed the turkish one.

Yes. You have to put manualy your apn from Free and install 4G switcher from the play store and chose with this application LTE GSM WCDMA and you have 4G. The only problem it's you have to choose LTE GSM WCDMA with the application each time you reboot your phone to have 4G. Take mabe 30sec... That's the only problem with Free Mobile and 4.4.2.

May be there is somewhere something like a "turkish rom" (and it is not a secret any more that a large turkish company has large LG stakes) nevertheless if you really use an Optimus GPro you will easily understand that the firmware this thread is about is definitely not a "turkish rom" (unless you call every lg device now "turkish phone").

@jcdid:
Si vous désirez qu' une mise à jour de l'actuelle firmware aura encore lieu il ne faudrait pas en faire un insurmontable gâchis

As far as i understood the E-98x 'kitkat 4.4.2' releases are less country specific than the first 'jelly bean 4.1.2' ones .
ex:
E988 20b AME-XX --> all Middle East and [northern] Africa
E986 20a EUR-XX --> all Europe
Would be great If somebody could publish benchmark results of the different firmware versions.

Which Firmware to flash?
I have Slovenian Lg G Pro E986, which Firmware should I flash? I wanted to flash "Turkish" one, but it seems that other (E988 Singapore or alike has better support for 4g, Algerian is faster but needs tools for 4g). I am personally not that addicted to 4g, if 3g is working fine. I think that I will install "Turkish" one.

Now after I select which firmware to flash, the question is how to do it. I will write a list of things to do, correct me if I am wrong.
1. Download needed firmware (KDZ file - have "Turkish" one - http://csmgdl.lgmobile.com/dn/downlo...E98620A_00.kdz)
2. Download and install LG drivers (already did - http://tool.xcdn.gdms.lge.com/dn/dow...=UW00120120425)
3. Download Lg Flash Tool (don't know which one to download, but it seems that the best one is this one: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2797190, although it is for LG-G2)
4. Make a backup with "LG Backup" tool so I can restore Apps and everything
5. If upgrading from 4.1.2 to 4.4.2 I should use "CSE Flash" to wipe anything
6. Let it install and reboot
7. Register with same google login (I am not sure if it is needed but I read somewhere that "LG Backup" needs this)
8. Restore "LG Backup"

Now I should have KitKat up and running, is that right?

Did all this, and it went fine. Just a note to anyone that after receiving popup (Can not connect to internet) do nothing, just let flash tool to finish. I am running KK 4.4.2. now.

Phone rebooted 2 times, and I used LG Backup to restore previous backup. I have LTE (4G) option on Network type, so everything is fine. Only APNs are missing, but I will fill them up now.
