Was just a heads up, if something doesnt work good you should be able to revert back one way or another.

I rooted this Eur KDZ (E97510B_00.kdz) on my F180L but I need to root it to install the BaseBandF180L, this I need for the settings for better connection. Otherwise I have only 3G and no UMTS.

Edit:
I see now that this version had no option for 4G (LTE). I had it by the HK 10A version and this one I could root and install the BaseBandF180L.
It can be that it come after install the BaseBandF180L, I'm not sure.

this tool from LG: With the same settings you see in the picture.

Then turn off the phone, connect FIRST the USB-Cable to phone AND the computer (here you must have installed the LG USB driver), then hold BOTH volume keys and then the power button, you come then in Download mode.
Then click on "Launch software update".

Edit: this is the Euro version and it isnt to root jet. (The HK 10A version is to root. this can be important for the basebandL installation)

Sorry, but I didn't read it good, I thought you ment flash. The newer versions of LG are not rootable at the moment, I put it also in footnote (edit). Only the older once, as the 10A HK.
