Default [Q] E970 variants and ROMs possibilites

Hello I have the LG E970 AT&T , I want to remain to stock but try new forks and variants of the stock, mostly which are debloated.

As far as I can see it is only stuck on Android ver 4.1.2 (if I am not wrong).

There is also confusion as the same model "LG Optimus G" has been released with four names/variants on different carriers/countries :

E970
E971
E973
F-180K/L/S

So I want to ask can I flash any de-branded original ROM for any of the above given models on my phone or do I have to specifically use the ROMs for AT&T E970 only.

Have searching at http://lg-phone-firmware.com/index.php?id_mod=20 and http://www.lg-phones.org/official-st...mware-rom.html but cannot find anything for E970.

Any guidance and link to find its stock ROM variants would be appreciated, also would be nice to know if there something available on 4.2 or 4.3

Thanks for your replies.

Use roms for the E970 only!, the other international variants have differences(no sd slot, 13 mp cam instead of 8 mp).
Of all th stock variants out there, i have tried:

Nocturnal: Has sony walkman, album and movie apps. Don't really like the boot animations though.
slickrom: LG home is missing, uses another launcher.
EG8: what i'm currently using, pretty much all bloatware removed.
There is also a JB port of the korean rom by snowleopard, but i haven't used it.
Pantech Burst
Rooted and Gizmolord 3.0 (sold!)


Xperia Ion
Running Aoba_PureBlack_Ultimate Privacy(sold! Really miss it though)

Lg Optimus G(AT&T) (Sold 2 of em so far, expecting my 3rd)
Running EG8 Rom

Samsung Galaxy S
(loaner from a friend-retured)

BLU Dash 4.0 (JB 4.2 version)
Holding me off till i get my G pro. Loaned it to my bro while he fixes his S3

Lg optimus g Pro(finally!!)
Running Radeonmaya's Kitkat

If you not adverse to trying, I would definitely recommend the f orum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2228880 ( [AOSPA 4.4.2 KOT49H] PARANOIDANDROID 4.0+ GEEB [beta3][01/20] )

I've been very happy with the rom, no issues to report so far. Other users have commented its the one they always flash back to

If you go into the international forum they have a development section for Canada. Of you flash a att kernel after the rom it usual works

I would love to see someone port a stock lg2 rom. (I tried for myself with the porting tool I found in the forums but it would not boot. :banghead: ) and I am not that advanced to do it myself
