I don't know what you're talking about. All ROMs on whatever version of Android that I've ever ran work with AWS on Wind. ROMs don't change your phone's radio/baseband/hardware so no worries about reception whatsoever. If you want a generic 4.4 ROM recommendation, I'm currently using Paranoid Android 4.5beta2, beta3 should be out soon.

Yes. But there are different models of the phone that work with different bands. I need a ROM for the AWS model

I did some research and found nothing about radio baseband AWS*.
Is AWS for Toro, Toro plus OR Maguro?

Silly me. I should have just done this based on the board/hardware names. I believe it is a toro because it runs android 4.2.1

You ahve to learn a lot of your Nexus.

Galaxy Nexus is a tuna.
Tuna is common device name for Galaxy Nexus.

Maguro is a GSM Nexus
Toro is CDMA and Toroplus is CDMA too.
Toro: Verizon
ToroPlus: Sprint


To see what versoin you have:
Go to Settings > About phone

Or read build.prop from /system/

Next: Learn about your Nexus and then you know everything what you have to know about your "AWS" radio band...

I know Maguro works on AWS. You'd have to look up the bands of Toro and Toroplus to tell whether those ones function as well. But if you bought yours from Wind, I'm going to say that I'm 95% sure you have the Maguro variant (GSM). Just go here for roms then: http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...us/development
