If anybody's interested here's the PRIMEKL01 bootloader, latest version.

It's the same LTE/CDMA leaked version that's floating around, nothing changed as both devices share the same bootloader, as far as I can tell.

It's recommended by Google for those who are on 4.0.3 roms with same XXKK06 radio. I've flashed it running Mike's ARHD 2.1.2 and even though it's not a 4.0.3 rom it's working perfectly.

Inside the zip I've included fastboot for Windows for easy flashing.

Put your phone into fastboot mode and execute the fastboot-windows.bat file.

If you have any problems with it just flash back to the previous version.

Any actual improvement? Just wondering why its worth flashing....boot loader isn't something I have knowingly flashed before so can't understand what it controls that would yield a noticeable benifit. Any help clarifying this would be appreciated! Thanks

As stated in the OP both versions use same boot loader and I just used it on my GSM gnex and all is good and working.

Thanks gingernut for making this nice and noob friendly, hope you can keep this thread updated with all latest boot loaders as and when they come out with a 1 click flash like yours

Should be all good as GSM and LTE use same boot loader, this being most recent and UGKL1 is a new(ish) radio.

I'm on XXKK06 radio (UK gsm) with Android revolution 2.1.3 with james bond 1.35 ghz kernal and all good here.

Would someone mind giving a little more detailed instruction on how to do this? Sorry, but I'm just not that familiar with fastboot. Besides, I'm sure I'm asking something a lot of folks are afraid to ask.

It's very easy.

1. Put the phone in fastboot mode: pull battery, then reinsert it and press vol up+vol down+power. The phone will boot with a green Android and some white text in the lower left. This is fastboot.

2. Plug in your phone to the PC, and install fastboot drivers if necessary.

3. Run the .bat file in the zip in the OP.
