Android 4.2.2 disables Nexus 4′s unofficial LTE support


Thursday 14th of February 2013 / phandroid.com
Android 4.2.2 has reached Google and LG’s Nexus 4, but for those taking advantage of a hack allowing for limited LTE support the new software might not be so desirable. Included in the update is a refreshed baseband version that effectively kills the unofficial 4G connectivity.The capability was initially uncovered after it was discovered that the Nexus 4 shared certain radio component with the LTE-capable LG Optimus G. Google and LG reiterated that there were no plans to enable 4G support with a future software release (and it was shown that the hardware compliment actually made that this impossible, anyway), but that didn’t stop many users from finding a workaround.The removal of the functionality entirely is more than Google simply tamping down on the unofficial feature. It also stems from the fact that the Nexus 4 lacks the necessary regulatory approvals to function on 4G airwaves, creating a potentially precarious legal situation if the company were to allow unofficial LTE support to continue unchecked.We will take this opportunity to once again wonder why LTE was no

Rooted, S-Off, help with updates from stock shipped


Sunday 10th of March 2013 / androidforums.com
I caved and bought the LTE when it came out, but decided not to activate it until LTE was available to my area since I had a EVO3D with 4G that worked fine. Well, LTE is in my area, and I am now ready to activate, but have a few issues and questions that I hope someone can help me with(links or other).Some information first.I am running the shipped stock rom with no OTA updates, I rooted and obtained s-off with lazy panda.-hardware version 0003-software version 1.13.651.1 710RD-android 4.0.3 /sense 4.0-pri 2.28_003-prl 25002-baseband 1.02.12.0427-hboot 1.12.1111-radio-1.02.12.0427TWRP touchscreen recovery 2.4.1.0(I heard this can be broken with an update?)1. My main concern isn't with LTE coverage, it is with the updates to Jelly Bean. What do I lose or gain with Jelly Bean? 2. I read that PDAnet and wifi tethering may not work. I would like to keep PDAnet working if possible.3. The aggressive multitasking memory-clearing is the biggest issue to me. There are times where just switching back and forth between tabs in the browser would cause the tab to reload, and once I exited the bro

[HERO ROM] Sneak Peek Working Donut on CDMA Hero - Page 3


Sunday 10th of January 2010 / forums.androidcentral.com
You will need to compare a logcat, ddms dump and maybe even strace and tcpdump from a working 1.6 user, a stock 1.5 build, and a non-working 1.6 user. Also compare the /system/etc/apns-conf.xml file from all three. I'm also thinking the PRI, Baseband radio, Software version, and Hardware version from all three might need looked at as well. These should all match, but I never checked or even thought to check. Here's a stock 1.5's info:PRI - 1.70_003Baseband - 1.04.01.09.21Software Version - 1.56.651.2Hardware version - 0002 Stock 1.5 apns-conf.xml contents- Code: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><!-- Copyright (C) 2008 The Android Open Source Project Licensed under the Apache License, Version 2.0 (the "License"); you may not use this file except in compliance with the License.

Earlier this week, the Nexus 7 LTE received an update that allows “full compatibility with Verizon’s 4G LTE network” . Google has now released a factory image and three binary files for it labeled as Android 4.4.2 build KVT49L .The software image contains a new edition of the baseband radio while the binary files bring more complete compatibility with various hardware components such as Audio and Sensors from Asus, NFC from  Broadcom and Graphics,Camera and other components by Qualcomm. The factory image lets you restore your Nexus 7 LTE back to the latest stock Android firmware. The factory image and binaries are most useful to developers who want to create a custom ROM for the Nexus 7.If you own a Nexus 7 LTE, it’s not a bad idea to grab the latest available software in case you’ll need it in the future.Source: Google Developers (Factory Image, Binaries)» See more articles by Alihassan Mahdi//
