Default [Q] Boot loop after replacing screen 4.3. (However flashing 4.2.2 works).

I've got a strange issue with my Nexus 4 was wondering if anyone has seen it before?

Was running stock 4.3. on my nexus 4 and had to replace my screen, this was the second time i've done this screen and after doing it the phone went into a boot loop stuck at the X.

Figured it was prob something I'd screwed up on the hardware but I reflashed 4.3 stock just incase and the same thing happened, I then flashed 4.4 same thing.

Strange thing was I put on 4.2.2 and it installs and boots fine. The screen works and everything fine on it except its running a pretty old android.

Anyone know if there's hardware that's got enabled in 4.3 or something hardware related that would be causing this ?

Going to take it apart again see I've put it back properly but I found it strange that 4.2.2 worked fine.

Try a custom ROM like CyanogenMod
