Hey guys,

So I recently changed my black nexus 4 into a white nexus 4 using an oem (yeah right) back. I also took the opportunity to replace my aging battery with another oem (yeah, I know) replacement.

The backing has all the electronics for nfc and Qi charging on it, and the Qi works great. But NFC is completely shot, nothing is working. So, besides the electronics on the back being shot, are there any other things it could be? Does the battery have any nfc importance?

you can put back black cover to test NFC - then you will know where fault is - white cover (nfc antenna coil broken) or phone (maybe nfc connector pads) ...

Yup, figured that would be the next step, I just dread removing the white cover. When I took off the black one I snapped the little plastic around the volume rocker.....
