    I'd def try it out. I'm actually running AOKP right now and it's very solid. Go to goo.im and under devs look for Roman, download his 12/8 mako preview build. Everything is stable as far as I can tell. Be sure to flash the gapps too, I believe I used the 11/30 signed ones available on that site.

    You'll have to adb push them to your phone while in recovery. Same can be done with the CM10 ROMs, just saying what I currently recommend

    I just tried to re-do the whole process on a mac just hoping that it may have been my windows 8 machine. Well, now I get an error when it sends the 'system' to the device. This is what I'm getting:

    ERROR: usb_write failed with status e00002be FAILED (data transfer failure (no such file or directory))
    ERROR: usb_read failed with status e00002ed FAILED (status read failed (No such file or directory))

    Just uninstalled my driver, and reinstalled it (just hoping it had something to do with it). Got through the entire tutorial fine, rebooting now for the second time, and still stuck at the X splashscreen. Man this is frustrating. Is it bricked?

    No, it's definitely not bricked.

    Try using Wug's toolkit... it goes against my standards (no disrespect to Wugfresh.. he does great work, I just hate encouraging the use of toolkits for a Nexus device) but give it a shot and lets just see if that will work for your system:

    I don't know why that worked, because it seemingly did the same things I was doing with your instructions, but THANK YOU SO MUCH! My phone has returned! I really really appreciate all the help.

    By all means, thank Wugfresh for that. There are times it will work seemingly inexplicably when the command line method doesn't, and vice versa. In any case glad you got it back up and running!

    System write fail usually can be fixed by sending the system part separately or using a different usb port as well..

    Going to use this guide later this afternoon. A buddy of mine bought a Nexus 4 from some guy, but when I got him to check the about system turns out he's not on stock. Running something called "xylon_mako_007_11_27_2012" in the "Modversion" of about phone. If I follow the steps in this guide he'll be back to stock Android and the other stuff will be totally wiped out?

    Does it normally take a really long time to boot after the process is done? Stuck on the Nexus X logo

    Well it was a bit touch and go but I'll share my experience.

    Followed the steps to a T, but then phone was stuck on Nexus "X" for the longest time (like minutes). Finally decided to reboot, then booted into the recovery that I have (TWRP recovery), and from there did a wipe cache/wipe davlik, then I rebooted from there and it worked.

    I was sweating, my buddy was looking at me as if I screwed up his phone.

    Fussing around with fastboot and recovery stuff is scary at first...I was scared shless when I first started. Just keep at it and it becomes second nature. Its really hard to brick this phone.

    Another update, if anyone knows what's going on.

    I set up my buddy's phone with stock, he went away happy. Then when he got home he checked storage info and it's only showing him 5.6GB available space. It's definitely a 16GB model (checked from bootloader says "Mako 16GB" for variant.

    When I was flashing with Def's steps there were some "erase" steps first that I did. However after I got stuck at the "X", I flashed again, only the 2nd time I started with the flashing part without the "erase" steps. Is it possible it somehow flashed 2 separate system partitions or something and now only 1 is accessible?? Is there a way for me to restore back to stock and get him the entire 16GB back? (I know it's only like 11GB usable or something).

    I'm stuck. He's not here right now so I can't test out stuff on his phone. Anyone who has had a similar experience can you share ?

    I'll check the link later.. The second link should take you to the page with all the factory images.. Nexus 4 is there, you aren't looking hard enough, lol. It should say 'occam' next to it as well - that's the factory image codename for the Nexus 4 (mako).

    Sorry just saw that Google apparently pulled the images for some reason. I'm sure they will be replaced very shortly. There are places you can find them in the meantime in an emergency, or I can upload them to my dropbox this evening if you are still in need.

    Hey I just tried to do this and got to step 6. Once I got there, whenever I input the code I get "error: cannot load 'bootloader-mako-makoz101,img'

    Also, I did have to download the image file through the search on and the file name I downloaded was named "yakju-jop40d-factory-279cdc5d.tgz"

    I'm close to getting this done and would appreciate the help to get past this hurdle!

    You downloaded the image for a Galaxy Nexus (yakju). You need the Mako image for the Nexus 4, which may still be down as Google pulled them last week for unspecified reasons. I believe peejay has a thread with the image shared if you can locate that..
