Hi all, I want to ask another specific question - is any way to enable 4g on Sailfish on Nexus 4 Mako? I found info that is possible. Can someone provide me some step-by-step guide to do it? :)

Following specification (http://www.android.gs/device/google-nexus-4/) nexus 4 can not get 4G ! Its hardware can not support it. Even if you do anything on software ... it won't change anything. Maybe, I don't have good reference, but please check technical specification.

Following https://www.frequencycheck.com/compatibility/VAa4G/google-nexus-4-lg-e960/countries, you may want to talk about 3.5G ?

yeah, so Im watching those country tables - so I ment 3.5G :)

UMTS 3G, 3.5G, 3.5G (4G speed) 100% (1/1)

Well, if you are referring HSPA+ (advertised as 4G by some networks) then the transition is automatically performed during active data usage. It is how 3.xG is designed.

If you really want 4G "LTE" on Nexus 4, follow something like this: https://forum.xda-developers.com/nexus-4/general/ref-mako-modem-collection-t2087227
