Mobile Data not Working
Possibly because I'm not from Portugal and not on that network, but I can't seem to get my mobile data to work. It says I need to insert a SIM card. Probably flashing back to 4.2.2 in the meantime unless I can find a fix.

Be carefull with flashing back 4.2.2 - new firmware contains new bootloader which makes it impossible to downgrade (at least in simple manner). Flashing KK is one way road...

That is how you get your mobile data and phone service is with a sim card.
Then you have to set up an APN to match your particular sim for data.
If you do not have a sim...you can still use your mega , but on a wifi instead and still no phone or mms.
Even though your not in Portugal. . You can stillnflash it and just choose the language that you want.
Good luck.
I still cant believe that no one has tried this KK upgrade on their 9205 and NOT reported back
If they like it or not

I did install it and I'm not happy. Mobile data not able to be used. If all you want to do with your phone is make calls and send SMS, feel free to flash it if you're not from Portugal.

Who's sim card are you using?? and the phone and sms works??
Maybe try your APN again. Can you get the correct APN settings for your sim and double check..
PS.... Does it have the United Stated English language choice when coming off a factory reset??

Works fine for me although I expected a few cosmetic changes. Theres no Kitkat wallpapers, everything look the same as 4.2.2 apart from the system changes obviously. Not noticing any better battery performance yet, will keep testing.

Is it really worth custom-flash to 4.4.2 Portugal if you're not from that country or would you just prefer to wait for the official to roll out?

In my opinion, since there's not much to brag on the KitKat version of Galaxy Mega, I would stick to JellyBean and wait for the official OTA from Samsung. I don't see any custom ROMs for the GT-I9205 yet and there are not many developers into this device compared to the good old S2, S3, S4, S5 series. I'm not sure why, there are more custom ROMs for low-branded devices such as the Lenovo series. Now, I feel a bit regretted buying this phone unless you're a big fan of TouchWiz UI (on a big display panel) and don't like the Xperia, or HTC Sense interface, this is for you.
