[Q] Nexus 4 bootloop after official 4.3 OTA
I just bought a Nexus 4 with broken touch screen which I replaced myself.
After I replaced it, I decided to start fresh and updated the device directly to stock 4.4 using fastboot commands and got stuck in bootloop (4 circles going on for hours).
Then I tried different factory images and managed to boot under official Android 4.2.2 and it worked flawlessly until I tried to update with 4.3 OTA (with radio .83)
I found out that downgrading radio from .83 to .48 (or .53) allows the device to boot under Android 4.3.
I'm now stuck at this stage because the same trick does not work after 4.4 OTA (from 4.3).
The issue seems to be acknowledged by Google but they don't seem to have an official software fix for it since they only go for a replacement.
I'm considering an RMA but since I replaced the screen myself, I'm facing the risk to be charged 200€ if my warranty gets void (if they really control the device as they say).
Anyone managed to fix this issue? It seems to be linked to the radio (can't go further than radio .48 / .53)?
