    I updated my nexus 4 today because I was tired of seeing the update your phone message. I never rooted my phone or anything like that but when I updated it to jellybean or ice cream, not sure which one, it said error and stopped. I restarted my phone and it went to the white google logo and looped. I could feel the phone vibrate every time the phone turned back on. I did a factory reset and it still goes to the white google logo loop. I searched the forums and everyone just said try factory resetting it, which didn't work. Is there any way of saving my phone?

    Sorry about that, looks like another OTA gone wrong. It would update to KitKat. ICS is old and the Nexus 4 never used it, Since you did a factory reset, all your data are lost except for what you synced.

    This might be some work involved, but it will restore your phone to stock:

    But instead of using the old factory image and driver linked in the guide (step 1 and 3), I suggest using this USB Driver and downloading the latest 4.4.2 factory image from here:
