    Default 4.3 flash timeline?

    Hi brains,

    I'm currently flashing the 4.3 image through fastboot and its been well over an hour. I know its a big file, but this seems odd. Anyone know how long it should take? I'm gonna assume if i pull the cord and try a do-over I will end up with a door stopper.

    thoughts?

    No.. Longer than 10 minutes and you've got a problem, lol. Should be much faster. What OS are you using (windows, Mac, etc..)? And are you using my guide in the Rooting section?

    ota flashing over 4.2.2 takes 3 minutes. factory image flash takes about 5 minutes.

    use 2defmouze guide on his signature or my generic Nexus factory restore guide.

    using osx. its been giving me grief with not recognizing terminal commands, but when it says its executing it has been.

    I'm using a few instruction sets. it's hard to follow who's is who's as they link around a lot. Basically i'm using this:

    Download the full occam factory image, which includes the full system, bootloader, recovery, kernel (boot.img), and radio. It's a clean slate for these components - they'll flash cleanly over anything you have now.
    Instead of using the bundled script called flash-all, you will unpack the tgz (tar/gz) archive, and then the zip contained within as well. This will put all the components into one folder:
    Follow the excellent guide over here and make sure to omit step D10, which overwrites userdata. Here are the commands you will be executing, for reference:
    1. adb reboot bootloader
    2. fastboot flash bootloader bootloader*.img
    3. fastboot reboot-bootloader
    4. fastboot flash radio radio-mako-m9615a-cefwmazm-2.0.1700.84.img
    5. fastboot reboot-bootloader
    6. fastboot flash system system.img
    7. fastboot flash boot boot.img
    8. fastboot format cache
    9. fastboot reboot
    Note: Instead of unpacking the image*.zip and flashing system and boot manually, you can actually do fastboot update image*.zip - this won't delete data (you would pass a -w flag if you wanted that to happen), but it will re-flash recovery back to stock if you were running a custom one. You can then flash it back, or just use the commands above instead. Either way, the result will be the same.


    it worked up until the system flash.

    I just checked your guide and it is the one I used to root the device.

    Update,

    I stopped terminal and tried to flash again, same problem. I stopped it again and booted it up. it seems to be working. I'm charging it right now, then I think I will try to load it from the sd card
