Say BYE BYE to illegal LTE nexus 4 users!

google removes n4 images from servers, most likely removing LTE capabilities in next update!

The likely reason for the files’ removal is the unauthorized LTE access that was discovered last month. Because the phone was not registered with the FCC as a LTE-compatible smartphone, it is illegal to access that spectrum in North America. Google is likely planning to issue a new software version in the coming days to make it more difficult to access the LTE radio on the phone, though it’s unlikely they can keep it from developers for long.

Illegal is a strong word.
LTE was never certified by FCC on nexus 4 thus its illegal for the phone to access the bands. google can face heavy fines if they dont disable it.

So, uh, what does the FCC have to do with... Canada? I don't get it.
The Federal Communications Commission regulates interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite and cable in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories.

Yeah. This is a Canadian site whose users are primarily Canadian. So are you just posting for the sake of those AT&T users?
