If I get mine before you have the info I am happy to help. I will be ordering as soon as available and will be shipping next day if possible. I live on the east coast though so you may already have it by then..
Hi everyone. Since the N4 goes on sale tomorrow, I need someone to volunteer to grab some info for me from a brand new N4. This info will need to be obtained as soon as you power up the device, before you apply any OTA updates or anything else. Here's what I'll need from the device:
1. The bootloader version. (Found only on the main bootloader screen, you'll have to reboot into the bootloader to see it)
2. Android version and build # (From settings)
3. Baseband version (From settings)
4. Firmware and device name. To get these two pieces of info, open /system/build.prop in a text editor and post the values of ro.product.name and ro.product.device.
Again, please do this as soon as you power on the device, before applying any OTA that may be available out of the box! Thanks much for your help!
Just a reminder. If any of you guys in the UK can provide this information before applying any OTA updates, I'd really appreciate it. Also, if you get an OTA to JOP40C, if you could get the link for it, that'd be awesome too!
The images are already posted here. You should easily be able to download them and see what the radio and bootloader version are, and extract the build.prop.
Yes, but I have reason to believe that the phone actually ships with JOP24G, not JOP40C. I want the information from JOP24G if the phone indeed ships with it. I have most of the information for JOP24G...the only thing I don't know is the bootloader version. Also, if the phone ships with JOP24G, I'm hoping someone will be able to provide the OTA link for JOP40C from JOP24G.
OK, judging by YouTube unboxing videos, I can definitely verify that it does NOT ship with JOP40C out of the box. It ships with some earlier build. Nobody seems to scroll down so I can see the build number, but I can tell it's an older build by the baseband. It ships with 1700.24, but JOP40C uses 1700.33.
So, when somebody gets their N4, if you wouldn't mind, please (before installing any OTAs) do the following for me:
1. Reboot the phone into bootloader mode and tell me the bootloader version. It may be MAKOZ10L but I'm not sure so I'd like confirmation.
2. Android build number.
3. When you get the OTA notification to update to JOP40C, could you check logcat before applying the update and get the URL to the OTA file?
I would normally do this myself, except I won't be owning a Nexus 4 straight away since I'm on Verizon.
Phone already had OTA update ready to install by the time I logged in and got this info, but it won't reboot and install update. How can I get the URL it downloaded from?

as far as the OTA, not sure what's up there, but if you want to work with me on getting the filename for the OTA, I'd really appreciate it. Are you familiar with ADB and the developer options (sorry if that's an insulting question, but I need to know what instructions to give you.
Basically, you'll need to turn on developer options on your phone by going into Settings | About Phone and tapping the build number a few times.
Once that's done, go to Settings | Developer Options and turn on USB debugging.
Once that's done, hook the phone up to your computer via USB, open a command prompt. Do the following command:
adb logcat >logcat.txt
After about 10 seconds, hit Control C to exit out. Open that file (logcat.txt) that you just created in a text editor and search it for ".zip" (without the quotes). You should find the name of a zip file in there. Give me the name of that file (or the full URL if it's in there).
