I have been working on this app for the past week and it is finally ready for release! It needs some cleaning up and a couple more features, but it is fully working as is. I had no experience with java or android app development before creating this. I am currently taking Computer Science at school and learning C++



Current features:
  • Choose and flash all of the available stock Nexus 4 modem images
  • Choose to flash some of the most popular Hybrid Modems with LTE enabled (More coming soon)
  • Auto flashes in recovery
  • Enable needed LTE at the push of a button
  • Ability to install latest TWRP for Nexus 4 from app.

Planned features:
  • CM Backup script for build.prop tweaks
  • Clean up UI
  • Credits in app
  • Request something good

Requirements:
  • Nexus 4 of course
  • Root

Credits:
Changelog


Available on Google Play
Or direct download here

App is now open source!

Donate if you feel like it .

Will I get LTE on my carrier?
This can enable Band 4 LTE on the nexus 4. T-Mobile in the USA uses this for their entire current LTE network. AT&T in US uses it in select locations. Various carriers in Canada and Mexico are also using Band 4. Check the link above for your carrier.

Looks nice, man. I've already got an LTE modem installed, but will be handy for going back to stock.

What do you guys think I should do something like this http://puu.sh/6iywW.png ? Or just leave just the 3 tabs , without the left drawer. I can put the Phone info menu (*#*#4636#*#*) in the overflow menu(top 3 tabs) along with about instead of the left drawer. Idk if its really needed

Edit: Or this maybe http://puu.sh/6iyQN.png , I think this might be the better option ?

Three tabs + overflow menu is fine. However, if you go with the left menu I'd say put everything in it & get rid of the overflow menu.

Thumbs down
Nice app idea but unfortunately it did not work, tried enabling LTE and my phone froze and after a couple of minutes the app stop responding and it closed, same thing happened when I tried to flash hybrid radio, waited 5 minutes and never rebooted never flashed
