I never did the XML edit and factory reset and got LTE this morning while out on a work route.

The XML edit and factory reset is so that you never have to worry about toggling LTE on again. LTE just works, without entering any menus or anything. You can absolutely get LTE without modifying any XMLs or factory resetting, but you are going to have to enable LTE fresh every time you restart your phone.

My phone connected to LTE automatically upon restart without doing the XML edit.

Apn settings

Do you have to make a new access point with all the changes or do you just make changes to the original apn settings?

You can do it either way but I would recommend creating a new APN (there are some differences between the two that make epc.tmobile.com better for HSPA+ and fast.t-mobile.com better for LTE).

Thank you, when I make a new APN do I add a specific password and server code or do I leave those blank?

It would be nice to know what is causing the issues for some people using the old radios on 4.2.2, it has to be something to do with their settings or their carrier. I am on stock 4.2.2 with .33 radio which I flashed using twrp. I haven't had any issues with calls, data, WiFi, gps or Bluetooth. I'm on koodo in Canada (which is really telus). I'm not bragging or rubbing it in for those of you with problems, I'm just saying that there has to be a way..don't give up!

The username and password fields are blank (most fields are left at their defaults; if in doubt, just copy from the existing APN). There are a few you'll have to enter though (MMSC, etc).

The Nexus 4 and T-Mobile dual stack nicely, so you can change both of your APNs (epc.tmobile.com and fast.t-mobile.com) to IPv4 + IPv6 (the two settings at the bottom).

    I have managed to get LTE to stick as the default without needing to factory reset the phone.

    First of all you need to modify the build.prop file and add this this line:
    Code:
    telephony.lteOnGsmDevice=1
    You may need to remove a line that says:
    Code:
    telephony.lteOnCdmaDevice=0

    After doing this reset the Nexus 4.

    After it restarts go into Settings, More..., Mobile networks.

    A new menu option should exist called Network Mode. In this menu you can pick the default mode and change between then.

    This should stick between reboots without needing to factory reset the phone. This will need to be done again when flashing a new rom as it will overwrite the build.prop file. This was all tested on CM10.1 nightly builds.

    Woot! I demand infinity thankyous!

    Just kidding of course, but I assume you put in the 9? If so, then all the lines you need to add in build.prop are:

    telephony.lteOnGsmDevice=1
    ro.telephony.default_network=9
    ro.ril.def.preferred.network=9

    ...followed by a factory reset of your device
