I've decided to try and compile a list of the available radios for the Nexus 4 so that people have a "one-stop" for all of them.

Unless stated otherwise, I've pulled all of these myself from either the factory images from Google's site, and packaged them up to be flashable in recovery.

Notes:
1) I have no idea what the differences are between the versions.
2) LTE is disabled in all radios newer than 0.33. If you want to use LTE, you need to use 0.33, 0.27 or a hybrid.
3) For those on T-Mobile who want to use LTE, see this post. Also see this for a recovery-flashable fix for no audio when using older radios on 4.2.2.
4) For advanced users: the radios from the Optimus G do also work to a certain extent, but they require kernel patches. See here.
5) For those that can't tether when using LTE, here are the proper IP tables.

Standard disclaimer: I take no responsibility if you mess up your device by flashing any of these radios.

These are flashable in a custom recovery. To flash using fastboot, extract the image from within, and flash that using: fastboot flash radio modem.img

Radio List (in order -- newest on top):

1.05 - Source: LRX22C factory image. Thanks to bombadier for posting it here. LTE is disabled on this radio. You may have issues if you use this radio on a ROM based on a version of Android older than 4.4.

1.04 - Source: LRX21T factory image. Thanks to ktomov for posting it here. LTE is disabled on this radio. You may have issues if you use this radio on a ROM based on a version of Android older than 4.4.

1.03 - Source: KTU84P factory image. Thanks to ata1918 for posting it here. LTE is disabled on this radio. You may have issues if you use this radio on a ROM based on a version of Android older than 4.4.

1.02 - Source: KTU84L factory image. Thanks to Nathan-NL for posting it here. LTE is disabled on this radio. You may have issues if you use this radio on a ROM based on a version of Android older than 4.4.

0.98 - Source: KOT49E OTA update. Thanks to el_charlie for posting it here and Nathan-NL for posting it here. LTE is disabled on this radio. You may have issues if you use this radio on a ROM based on a version of Android older than 4.4.

0.97 - Source: KRT16O factory image. Thanks to Imperticus for posting it here. LTE is disabled on this radio. You may have issues if you use this radio on a ROM based on a version of Android older than 4.4.

0.84 - Source: JWR66V factory image. Thanks to magote for posting it here. LTE is disabled on this radio.

0.83 - Source: leaked JWR66N build. Thanks to Jeff Williams for dumping and markd0wn for posting it here. LTE is disabled on this radio.

0.54 - Source: JDQ39E build on the Nexus 4 released in India. Thanks to eRajesh for dumping and posting it here. LTE is disabled on this radio.

0.48 - Source: JDQ39 OTA update. Note: there are reports that this radio breaks auto-rotation and auto-brightness functionality on 4.2.1 and earlier. No issues on 4.2.2 though. LTE is disabled on this radio.

0.33 - Source: JOP40C/D factory images.

0.27 - Source: Leaked LG testing build (04 Mar 2013). See this thread. Thanks to houstonn for extracting and posting it.

0.27 - Source: Leaked LG testing build (14 Nov 2012). See this thread. Thanks to houstonn for extracting and posting it here.

0.24 - Source: Leaked JVP15Q image. See this thread. Thanks to houstonn for extracting and posting it here.


MD5s located on Dev-Host download page (when you click the link).

houstonn has graciously provided a mirror for the all the N4 radios for those times when dev-host is down. It can be found here.



Unofficial hybrid radios

See this thread for discussion/information on hybrid radios.

Note: the following are not stock radios.

morrislee has done some great work: he replaced the core modem components in 0.84 with those from 0.33 and 0.27. See his posts here and here. This enables us to use LTE and yet have all the newer features (power management, audio on T-Mobile, etc.) from the newer radios.

Hybrid 0.33/0.84

Hybrid 0.27/0.84

Sweet thanks, was wondering about that .27 that review testers had before it got updated to the official 4.2 build. Gonna test out this .24 to see if it works better (not that .33 is terrible but i get some weird signal drops sometimes).

Hmm....I wonder if the leaked modem or the original(JOP40C) would help intermittent data loss issue most devs are running into after HSIC wakelock fixes? Lets try it out

I would recommend the usual nandroid before flashing...

Not that that will probably help, seeing as it doesn't back up the radio

Flashed .27 and seems I was having "data stalls" - in that i mean if the phone was sleeping I didn't get alerts for data stuff (MMS/Google Talk) but as soon as I opened the apps they refreshed showing received a message some time ago.

I was having some signal drops (where the signal just disappears then comes back) on .33 so i flashed .24 (not .27 as i said above) to see if that would fix it. That's when i started getting data stalls (where it shows it was connected but i actually wasn't). Flashed back to .33 now and all is same again.
