    I am stuck on that step, in bold. I dont see sdcard listed. I unlocked the bootloader via Nexus Toolkit. What do I do now?
    Try skipping that step, go directly to try pulling your files with Nexus 4 Toolkit.

    Are you in TWRP before that? you must pick recovery mode from the bootloader (if you already flashed TWRP), then from there check Advanced/File Manager, see if you get the folders/files list from there:

    Hi Himeko,

    I downloaded and installed the platform tools and Google USB Driver, but "Android ADB Interface" still does not show up in the Device Manager. Do yuu know why this is the case?

    Thanks
    Mike


    it's a bit techy stuff, let me know if you don't understand something:

    • Install the SDK: Android SDK | Android Developers
    • Run "SDK Manager". You might need Java for this, download/install first if required.
    • Through SDK Manager, download platform tools and USB Driver (usually ticked as default)
    • Make sure driver is installed. When N4 is plugged it should show something like "ADB interface" or "Nexus bootloading device" on top on device manager
    • Go to bootloader (with phone OFF, hold power+vol down). Leave it there.
    • Back to PC: D:\Disk3\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20130717\sdk\platform-tools
    • Open a command prompt here, preferably with admin power (start meny, cmd, r-click, run as admin)
    • Download TWRP: TeamWin Projects - TWRP 2.6 - | TeamWin
    • "Get TWRP for your device", "TWRP for Nexus 4 [mako]", "Download the newest .img file here"
    • "openrecovery-twrp-2.6.0.0-mako.img" < download this
    • Put this img file in D:\Disk3\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20130717\sdk\platform-tools
    • Back to msdos/command prompt, type:
    • fastboot flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-2.6.0.0-mako.img
    • Now press vol down, select Recovery, this will bring up the custom recovery app from TWRP
    • If you had the phone encrypted, it will ask for the password, type it in
    • Now here you have to go Mount, pick /sdcard
    • Now we need the Nexus 4 Toolkit: [NEXUS 4 TOOLKIT V2.0.0] Drivers, Backup, Unlock, Root, Recovery, Flash, Mods + MORE - xda-developers
    • Install, run, pick 13
    • Now pick 14 "Pull files from device". 2 "manually answer", say yes
    • Now it needs the path, it is "/sdcard/" without the quotes, and including both /
    • Let it work. If everything goes well, your files will be in "C:\Google_Nexus_4_ToolKit\pulled_files_are_put_here"

    That's for the personal data stuff. Contacts, SMS, apps, apps data etc is a different story, if you need that, you have to do the other steps from my first post (manually flash 4.3 excluding the DATA img)

    That will appear once you get to the bootloader screen.

    Had the same today, finally fixed it after some hours and even got to keep all my data:

    • Go to bootloader (power+vol down)
    • Install TWRP from the pc through USB (with fastboot from SDK)
    • Enter Recovery (twrp). From here you can recover all your data even if encrypted (mount /sdcard then pull files with Nexus Toolkit)
    • Download 4.3 mako image from google, extract to sdk/platform-tools
    • Flash bootloader img, then reboot back to bootloader (bootloader-mako-makoz20i)
    • Flash radio img, then reboot back to bootloader (radio-mako-m9615a-cefwmazm-2.0.1700.84)
    • Manually flash all the other img files from the zip, 1 by 1, EXCEPT FOR DATA, this way you get to keep all your stuff, everything will be the same after the update, installed apps, setup etc
    • That means: boot, system. "writing system" could take a while, if it didn't change after a couple hours just ctrl+C to cancel, I had this.. and the update was properly written anyway)

    It really works, I'm never so happy and spend my time to reply this, , thanks!

    Then nexus toolkit should work to pull the files; if it doesn't, maybe there's somethign wrong with the usb connection or driver. try "fastboot reboot-bootloader" while you are at the bootloader, see if it works (to check the connection with pc is fine)

    I finally completed the steps from here for the fastboot commands while referring to your original steps -
    xda-developers - View Single Post - [HOW-TO] How to flash a factory image / return to stock / unlock / root #

    Only referred to the steps in section D, except I didnt flash the userdata img. Now I am stuck at the X screen. I wiped cache from recovery mode too, still it wont go ahead. Its stuck at that screen upwards of 15 minutes, so I have just switched it off for now.

    While I was flashing the imgs, the above reboot-bootloader command worked fine.

    Did the system img complete?

    Try wiping delvik cache as well from TWRP, then reflashing boot and radio etc, just don't ever flash the data part. Hit also "fix permissions" in TRWP.
    08-01-2013 04:22 AM
  12. AsidXxx's Avatar
    Yep, the system img completed.

    I'll try out the other steps too once back home. So this time I'll -
    1. fastboot the TWRP img file, and boot into recovery bringing up TWRP screen
    2. wipe dalvik cache
    3. fix permissions
    4. reboot into bootloader screen
    5. fastboot flash all the img files in sequence except for userdata
    6. reboot from the fastboot screen

    Can you confirm the above? Also, PMed you.

    Yup sounds good. I don't remember 100% the order I did those things on, but it's pretty much that. First I transferred all my files under /sdcard to my pc, then proceeded to do the flashing, first the long files (booloader, reboot to loader, radio, reboot to loader), then next was system.. I think (dont think the order matters much), which actually never completed, it said "writing system" forever, after some hours i cancelled and it seemed to have worked anyway, then flashed the other img files except for data, then wiped cache dalvik etc.. I think for cache TWRP said it deleted and re-created the cache mount/partition; after that I rebooted and was greeted by the encryption dialog asking for my pass, so all was good from then on, it booted to 4.3 with all my stuff.

    Next steps was removing/re-adding my google account cause I couldn't download anything from the store (backed up contacts first cause removing the account removes them), then restored them. After that I had to reinstall the SuperSU to regain root access needed for Droidwall (firewall), and everything else was fine, all apps installed and working and the icons arranged the same way etc, nothing was gone

    From within TWRP, tried to wipe Dalvik cache but got a failed message. Wipe cache and fixed permissions. Then rebooted into bootloader screen and ran the following commands (attached).

    Booted into phone. See the X. Fingers crossed.

    I still have the problem that the "Android ADB interface" would not show in my Device Manager even after I got to the bootloader screen. Is it because my phone wasn't USB debugging enabled before it became a brick? If so, do you know any way to enable the developer mode/USB debug mode without login to the cell phone OS?



    That will appear once you get to the bootloader screen.

    Blame it on sleep deprivation caused by Google

    Think the only option left for me is to flash stock completely via Nexus Toolkit

    Follow his steps exactly, but instead of installing 4.3, go back to 4.2 using the links he provides. Everything else worked perfectly! Thanks for the help. Make sure you install the naked drivers correctly - I used this step-by-step guide:

    No, that doesn't matter; did you download the Android SDK+Google USB driver?

    So basically you are flashing 4.3 stock but with 4.2.2 radio img. And if I dont flash the userdata.img, my data stays intact right?
    08-03-2013 07:46 AM
  24. AsidXxx's Avatar
    So finally went ahead and flash 4.3 including userdata, because whatever I did I wasnt able to get past the X screen. After flashing userdata img, booted into the phone but now I see that the storage space shown is too less, like I have about only 5GB free. What do I do now?

    That's the problem I'm having all of a sudden. My 16 GB Nexus is showing ~5.7 gb free. This thread: [HOW-TO] How to flash a factory image / return to stock / unlock / root # - xda-developers suggests factory resetting and if that doesnt work basically reflashing everything. Not sure how repeating the same steps would solve the space problem. Been flashing problem free for awhile, I don't know why 4.3 is giving me all these problems now.
