    As mentioned above those are two great places to start reading about rooting. Yes, I did say, reading. First to root, you should have a reason, it could be that you need better battery life or you want more control over it. You should read and read and read until you're blue in the face about everything you can that pertains to rooting before actually rooting so that way when you have a problem, heaven forbid you do, you will recall something you read somewhere and find a quick answer to your question and get you on your way to a rooted device. Also read about Clockworkmod recovery and TWRP recovery (the two most common ones), how they work, which one you like better, read about Titanium Backups, NANdroid backups, and all the different kinds of backups, learn what a kernel is, how the wrong one could affect you, learn how to find the correct ROM for your device or else you might risk bricking it. 2defmouzes guide is a great one, and check out his other thread here http://forums.androidcentral.com/nex...tom-setup.html and see what you can do with root, what kinds of apps are great to use with it, if you like Paranoid Android check out my full review of it here http://forums.androidcentral.com/nex...on-review.html, check out my YouTube channel for a lesson on what an .apk file is, how to install it onto your phone, and some cool new camera tricks, wallpapers, and more. You can also check out the xda-developers forums for the Nexus 4 and you will find some great ROM's to use, and they have nightlies which are builds of ROM's that are added each night or so and you can usually find a fix for an issue rather quickly. Google Nexus 4 - xda-developers (Nexus 4 XDA-DEVELOPERS Forum) If you have any other questions just shoot a post and someone will always help if they can, on Android Central or XDA!
