    Hmmm... The link is broken and it looks like Google still has the Mako build pulled. Does anyone have a link for the Mako one? I can't find the aforementioned by 'Peejay.'

    Updated the OP with a direct download to the 4.2.1 factory image from my dropbox, along with the links peejay posted, so people will have options while we are still waiting for Google to restore the images to their developer site. Also included the md5 so people will know to check that

    Thanks, 2defmouze! Any pointers as to where we could find the proprietary binaries that were removed as well? I'd like to build an AOSP ROM and I would need the binaries.

    I'm having trouble getting my device to boot into the bootloader by using the command. It just says "waiting for device," and it never finds it. I have USB debugging enabled on my device and the drivers are correctly installed on my computer. Any suggestions?

    Do you get a response from "adb devices"?

    I get a response from "devices" when I'm in bootloader mode, and I'm also able to reboot using the command when I'm in bootloader mode. None of the rebooting commands work when I'm not in bootloader mode

    When you are in bootloader mode you use fastboot commands, i.e. fastboot devices, or fastboot flash xxxx.img, or fastboot reboot-bootloader. When the phone is booted normally you use adb commands, i.e. adb devices, adb reboot bootloader, etc....

    Where are you having the difficulty or was it just confusion about the commands?

    CRUCIAL STEP!!

    I was getting the "stuck on X logo" problem.

    I resolved it by updating my SDK Platform-tools to the latest, from the Android SDK Manager.

    MAKE SURE YOU DO SO!

    I love you man! I really do! Just to add, since some of the files required are not available and I did some googling to find them..

    Factory image - Nexus 4 Firmware – occam | Random Phantasmagoria
    Universal naked driver - [ADB/FB/APX Driver] Universal Naked Driver 0.72 - xda-developers
    Setup ADB and fastboot - How to Set Up ADB / Fastboot with Android SDK for Any Andorid Device

    That's all! This totally worked at un-bricking my phone after I tried a hard reset through the bootloader. Once again, many thanks!

    Prior fastboot commands all worked without a hitch? Try a different, preferably rear, usb port..

    Check that you're spelling the name correctly in the command line, has to be exactly right. I notice you misspelled "occam" in the part you quoted above...

    Heres what i did & if you notice i added flash to the command as well as took the -w out and thats the only way it proceeded to work but then i get the

    MacBook-Pro:nexus4-adb-fastboot jerel$ ./fastboot-mac flash update image-occam-jop40d.zip
    sending 'update' (314357 KB)... OKAY

    Not sure why you had to change the command, but the way I wrote it is the exact way it needs to be entered. Try again using the right command.. Is it possible you've got another computer you can use? I don't know Macs at all.. I know this sounds difficult but maybe can you try live booting Ubuntu to get it done? You can download an image to use on a usb stick from Home | Ubuntu, simply boot into ubuntu without actually installing it or changing your computer at all and try and get everything done within that os..

    Else I would keep trying on the mac os using the right command. You could potentially try unpacking the factory image and sending the individual pieces of it one at a time, I believe I've noted that method in the troubleshooting tab.

    ok. i think my problem now is the missing partition table. i think its not writing because their is nothing to write the factory image on. any advice on how to handle that? I also do have a windows pc if need be

    Try from the beginning, going through the wipe steps and using the commands in the OP to flash it.

    EDIT:

    After hours of messing aroudn with this, it is finally working, thanks to my old Windows Vista PC. Re-created environment on Windows machine and followed instructions to a T again, I was able to write the system img and everything, I am finally back to normal (Well, start screen). So morale of the story.. try a Windows machine if things are not working with your Mac.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Just wanted to say I am geting the same errors as most people on a mac, regarding system.img and usb write failings.

    edit: I am now stuck on the google loading screen. Frankly not sure what to do at this point. I've also noticed I can NEVER mount sdcard from CWR, so I can't even push anything to the phone. I think since I did all those wipe commands I have nothing to load anymore, so I'm just sitting here with a Google screen or recovery mode screen, or i can boot into CWR.

    I've really fubared myself. I can't even run fastboot update </path/to/your/RomFile.zip> to get say the PA rom on it so I at least have something installed.. man how did I mess this up.

    It's really annoying that I can't mount ANYTHING via CWR. Can't mount sd card, can't sideload. Tried to push Cyanogen nightly for nexus 4 and I was able to to push the file but I can't apply the darn thing since I can't mount the sdcard! When I try to use fastboot to flash it, it tells me i don't have an android.txt file or something.

    I had the problem with the -w as well on Windows, told me it was in correct syntax. Moving the -w to after the update word in the syntax worked for me.
