    Default Nexus 4 Stuck at Boot X after reflashing to 4.2

    Hey guys,

    I have been an avid iPhone user for the past 4 years now. I decided it was time for a change, and went with the Nexus. I want to learn to develop for the community, and also wanted to learn the advantages of a root device.

    I rooted my device earlier today, and it seemed to go fine. I then wanted to make sure it would reboot fine, and turn off the device. I am now stuck at the x-logo. I have done several searches, and mostly get things back on other devices.

    I followed both [GUIDE] Nexus 4 - Factory Image Restore as well as [GUIDE] Return Your GSM Nexus to Stock / Flash to "takju" (now Android 4.2) and am still unable to get past the boot x.

    Also, if i turn off my nexus, I am unable to turn it back on unless i plug it back into the power cable.

    I understand this may have been my fault with a bad root or something I did, but I would really appreciate your help in getting my devices back. I really do need help asap, I will be out of the country from this thursday.

    I was able to turn it on without the power cable, so that can be ignored.

    Also, when I try to boot into recovery mode, all I see is the dead android and no options on how to proceed. Please help!

    Update: I was able to flash CWM onto the Nexus. Is there anyway to proceed from here?

    Also, am I able to adb sideload the factory image and try that way?

    No idea what you did to bootloop.. Try just locking and unlocking the bootloader again from fastboot mode. Usually gets it to boot up properly for people.

    I wrote a fast procedure on my blog about how to make 4.3 work:
