    If you have a recovery installed, you can flash SuperSU again.

    Just get Wug's Nexus Root Toolkit over on the XDA Nexus 4 forum, you'll be fine.

    I'm sorry. I don't think you should be flashing anything until you research more. Once you have a thorough understanding, then you should attempt to mod your Nexus.

    If you have a recovery installed, you can flash SuperSU in recovery.

    1. Boot the phone up.
    2. Connect phone to PC
    3. Download SuperSU.zip
    4.Drag SuperSU.zip into phone storage.
    5. Boot phone into recovery
    6. Flash SuperSU.zip
    7. Reboot phone.

    When you flashed SuperSU before, how did you do it?

    Do you have the proper ADB/Fastboot files?

    It's not an app your phone has. They are .exe's for the PC.

    I hope you made or have a backup of your data.

    If you do, you should do as suggested above. Use Wugfresh Toolkit. It's the easiest way for you to root your phone. Given what you've told us so far, it doesn't sound like you have the tech chops to do this stuff manually, or else you're going to need a lot of spare time to do it manually.

    I'm not saying don't learn, but if you want an easy way to get rooted in a stable way, use Wugfresh and then start learning about this stuff. If you don't know how to 'flash' anything', it's the best way for you to go.

    I just did it myself.
