Battery Full [Q] NEXUS 4 Shutdown

Phone shuts down within minutes of taking off charge. Looses network every time before shutting down.
Doesn't boot up or boots and immediately shuts down. Battery charge shown in recovery and upon booting differ.

Battery calibration, safe mode does not help. Also disabled smart wifi settings, as suggested in many threads, to no avail.
Running stock 4.4.2, rooted, bootloader unlocked.

Works perfectly fine when plugged in.

How old is the battery, how many charging cycles did it have? Have you tried flashing the stock rom again (4.3 or 4.4)?
For instance, search for battery replacement on aliexpress.com.

The phone is around a year old. Battery stats show it's in good health.
I need to confirm it's a battery problem before replacing it. What about the signal dropping?

Update: Also flashed to stock 4.4. Still the same issue. In fact, the problem is persistent across multiple roms; AOKP, CM, PA, MIUI, stock...

It's most likely the battery, try to replace it with genuine one.

I too think so. Just looking for someone who's faced similar issues and what worked for them.
