How to Install
  1. Make sure you have the latest CWM or TWRP recovery
  2. Copy the Rom zip file to Internal Storage
  3. Backup your files and data (if you like, backup Data, System and Boot with Recovery)
  4. If you are updating it, just flash it, don't wipe ANYTHING. If this is your first time on it and want a clean install to get no erros (but it's not needed), Wipe Dalvik Cache, System, Data, Cache (and if you are on TWRP, after this, go to Mount and uncheck System to get no errors)
  5. Flash the Rom you want to use (This will flashs new Bootloader and new Radio too, automatically)
  6. Restart and Setup this

If someone have any issues, please report here so I try to fix as soon as possible!

This works only with LTE Band 4 (AWS 1700/2100) that is supported by Nexus 4. If your carrier don't have support to Band 4 of LTE, I recommend that you use the version without LTE.

Downloading now. Will give it a try. Just one question do you know why I don't get LTE ever, even when I am using hybrid radio and 4G Sim and I am on LTE coverage area. Its kind of off- topic but just wanted to ask. Will give feedback after using this ROM.

Thanks for your efforts, and I don't want to misvalue your work but we already have an advanced nexus 5 PORT. Are you going to set up some advanced settings or something like that in this rom? Are you going to add more features?

This is not a port, it is based on the Nexus 4 Factory Image but bringing the user experience of the Nexus 5 and integrated root on rooted version. My idea is to easy the installation of a rom without flashing other zip files with the bootloader and radio, mods to get Nexus 5 transparency and launcher or root. To help users with less experience on flashing files. And I'm always updating it with the latest GAPPS to get less space in the internal storage.

I don't know what might be happening. Try using this version and enable 4g in Settings > More... > Mobile Networks > Network Mode > 4G

Default Hangs on first boot (Google logo)

Hi, I've installed the rooted version (no LTE) and now it hangs on first boot.

Wipe data/cache + dalvik and installed as usual.
Regards,
Nick

I tested it over 30 times, including'm using this version because it does not have LTE here! And had no error on first boot. Try to reinstall again and post the results. See if you're using TWRP, if you unmount the system partition.

does this ROM have the stock SMS app? If it does, can it be deleted without affecting the Rom?

This looks cool. I am as well running the nexus 5 port. Will switch to this one only if I have sufficient reasons. Perhaps if the answers to my questions are all in yes

1. Can we enable ART?
2. Does titanium backup and whatsapp work with ART enabled?
