I'm glad somebody gets this and how frustrating it has been :D. Yes! This! Exactly!

Hey, I'm glad you got the chance to vent. As much as I love using Android right now, I can't go along with people thinking your current situation is something where you "just deal with it".

Kudos to you for switching from iOS and still being so cool-headed and open-minded about your non-optimal Google/Android experience so far.

Got my replacement Nexus 4 yesterday evening. They also removed the $350 hold off my CC yesterday (what a relief).

So far I'm loving the N4. Haven't had any issues with it yet, but already digging through forums on tips for improving battery life...lol, oh well. Looks like there are some custom kernel solution. I might look into those next weekend after I'm sure I don't have any underlying issues with my replacement hardware.

Check the manufacturing date and hardware revision of your Nexus 4. Also you should check the SoC binning.

I'll check the soc binning after I root sometime this week. The box SN was 212K so I guess that is December 2012 Korea.

For rooting you better do it the first thing. Because it'll require you unlock and wipe data.

Ok... Unlocked and rooted. Installed terminal and it got super user access w/o any problems. 'dmesg' doesn't have that line or anything like that. I looked through the output and tried grep-ing other obvious strings so I know I have the syntax right.

Rooting doesn't wipe data. It's the unlocking of the bootloader that wipes the data.
