    Yeah I have 4.0.4 and got my sim changed out today. So far it works pretty good not perfect though. Wanting to move to 4.1 now though
    Its only a matter of time before we have a leaked version of 4.1.x for Verizon with new radios, but for now 4.1 ROMs are incredible anyway.

    Yeah I have been running 4.1 (CM10) fully for a day and the only problem I have had is slight radio loss and for some reason instead of mic cut-out all I have had is it making me sound like I am talking through my hand. No clue why. Does drain my battery a bit faster too losing about an hour of battery life from ICS. CM10 is nice had a hiccup with Clockwork loading through fastboot but got it on there through the app.

    As soon as you get those Radios if you can shoot me a PM that would be awesome. Might also need help installing it. Wanna try myself first I think.

    Hi guys, sorry if this has been addressed but I looked through several pages but havent found an answer to my question. I am new to the gnex and the first thing I did as soon as I got it was to flash TWRP, the JB bootloader, and AOKP JB Build 1 (did everything right, wiped data, cache ect). My 4G signal is pretty much unusable because it drops too often. I have to leave it in CDMA only all the time. I checked the about screen and I have baseband 10 with FC04 and FC05. Is there a radio that is recommended to run for best results? Should I go back to the 4.04 bootloader since that corresponds with the radios or does that not matter? Are any radio versions recommended above others or is it pretty much YMMV with all of them? Thanks for any help!

    Wouldn't make a difference, or shouldn't. If 4G keeps dropping you're just in a weak 4G area, or have a defective unit :/

    You can try the fa radios maybe, but I agree with def.

    Bootloader, at this juncture, doesn't matter.

    Well it is definitely not the area. It is happening in multiple markets (I was traveling over the weekend) all of which my Droid 4 performed flawlessly in. Is defective unit a plausible explanation or does the 4G radio just stink on the Gnex in general?

    Its not that bad

    Sounds like it might be a hardware problem, try exchanging would be your best bet.

    Hello from a newb to this forum.

    I've had my SGN for 3 or 4 months and it has had nothing but crappy signal. I tried to return it, but miss the return period by 5 days so they sent me a refurb. I then took my battery out to put it in the new/refurb one only to notice that the pink was blotched on the phone, but not on the battery. Called them and they told me not to return it. So I'm stuck with this hunk of junk. I mean don't get me wrong, I love the phone, but the reception is horrible. I'm running Liquid JB and I have had the latest radios since they came out. Just went on a trip and no one could get a hold of me nor could I do anything with my phone as far as data and it really sucked.

    I was going to ask about the hybrids, but after reading, I think I should just hold off till new radios come out (if they do).
    I have even just thought about selling the phone if I could get enough out of it and then saving up to get something out of contract.

    What I would do: wait for the new radios and see if it helps.

    Meanwhile, call Verizon every day and complain about the poor signal. Tell them it effects you all the time, work and life and its always bad. Tell them their customer service has been terrible. Complain about the refurb. Ask to speak to managers. Complain (just for the sake of getting what you want) about the infrequent updates. Or the failure of the updates to solve your signal.


    They will get you a replacement gnex or something else (RAZR I would guess) if you complain enough. Free of course.

    Anyway: I wouldn't take the loss of selling it , since you signed a contract for a working phone, and yours doesn't work.

    And btw I hate complaining but you gotta get something done right?

    I plan on waiting on the radios. One thing you missed was my water mark was smudged on the actual phone and not the battery. I have no clue how that happened. I think I only paid like $200 for the phone and I'm sure I could get that out of it. (possibly more).
    I hear ya on complaining and I have done so. Like I said, the first guy sent me a new phone (refurb) seeing I was 5 days out after I could actually return it. Maybe I will just walk into the store and show them the water marks and ask them to explain it to me and complain to them. But, then they will see that I'm rooted etc. but most times that doesn't matter when just talking to them. I personally think this is why the battery life sucks due to it trying to get signal/data all the time. Don't get me wrong, it does work, just very crappy compaired to my DX. I don't even use 4g

    I've never had radio issues, but these are working fine. Only thing I've noticed in the hour or so I've had it is Wi-Fi to LTE handoff is smokin' fast.

    Are these radios and bootloader? Do I need to be on any specific radio/bootloader combination before I flash this?

    You have to be on the 4.0.4 radios because one of them is a patch. FC## should be listed in your baseband. Don't worry about bootloader. You can flash the leaked bootloader (should be a link in my JB now thread) BEFORE flashing the radios, but really, it shouldn't matter that much, if at all.

    The new zip in the OP on rootz says it can be flashed over any radios. Link on the second page to older radios if anyone needs them though.

    While that's probably true, considering this came from a patched update from 4.0.4, I think it's safer to be on that than not.
