I was in the same situation as you, im in the philippines and recently picked up a f240l. The easiest way to fix it is rooting, then install cwm (remember to backup), and flash the v5 g2 apps rom, then baseband. This basically converts our f240 to e988. I highly recommend that as a starting point. You can.find all the instructions here on xda or you can check out the g pro section over at optimusforums.com. Good luck.

I think you can backup to the internal memory, but i did it to an sd, then copied it to my computer. For rooting you dont need an external but for the flashing i used one. Just msg me your fb name.

you can flash Sphinx Gpro ROM which is based on the stock (so all the cool Functionalities of the phone is still intact). There is a step by step guide to root and flash cwm. Might need to use Google translate because the site is in Vietnamese.
