for everyone that wants to sync their nexus 4 just edit the build.prop so the app sees the phone as the s4 google edition..

change the
ro.product.model=GT-I9505G
ro.product.manufacturer=samsung

Wow, works great, thanks!

Are there any negative consequences that arise from editing the build prop to show up as a different device?

I guess on the chance something else was more compatible with Nexus 4, like an app on the play store, then that'd be a negative.

I've been using method this to sync with my Fitbit Flex and it's worked great, except my camera's autofocus has stopped working.
When I open the camera and push a spot to focus on, it just gives me a red focus symbol. CM's Focal, Camera 360 and Snapchat also won't focus. Has anybody else noticed this?

Phone: Nexus 4
ROM: Stock 4.3 rooted (JWR66Y)
Kernel: Stock

Thumbs up
Works perfectly for me also running PA 3.99 on N4.

However, autofocus then stops working in the camera due to the edited build.prop

I've successfully patched application to masquerade Nexus 4 as GT-I9505G!! So now you can revert your original build.prop
PS Tested on CM10.2 nightly

I just downloaded and installed on my Nexus 4 running 10.1.3 stable and it does not give me the ability to sync my device. Any ideas?

Bluetooth 4.0 LE profile has been implemented in android 4.3 - so minimum CM version is 10.2
