CM10.2 Nightlies with faux123 kernel and morislee's hybrid LTE modem. Along with putting back the Photosphere camera from here: Goo.im Downloads - Downloading 8-24_Photosphere_Camera_4.3_signed.zip

I've been meaning to try CodeFireX builds as well but haven't gotten around to it: [ROM] [MAKO] [4.3] [cfX-Toolchain 4.8.y+] codefireXperiment Nightlies + Weeklies - codefireXperiment

Paranoid Android 3.99 with the stock kernel, best better life out of all the roms and kernels i've tried, and has the best featureset of any rom for the N4.

Ah I'm running Paranoid Android on my Nexus 7, would be nice to run something similar on my mobile.

Still got my valid student ID so later this month I'm going to get my number changed to a GTA number (for free).

Is there an app that will allow me to toggle on/off LTE?

The nexus 4 doesn't have LTE enabled by default, you have to do some hackery to enable it, but it resets back to HSPA+ when you restart your phone.

Yep, which is why I'm wondering if there is an app that will do the edits that needs to be done to enable it so I can easily disable it when I don't need LTE and want more battery life.

Mine doesn't, if you use the links from my other post that is. Basically editing your build.prop file will allow it to always work.

And I've noticed no loss of battery life with using LTE, its comparable or better actually.

That may be true, but a lot of google services don't work correctly over LTE.
