Before starting: as reported by @pincher65 , it dosent work on kitkat stock. still untested on 4.3
Quite simple: (TESTED ONLY ON 4.2.2 STOCK!)
First Part = Rooting
Second Part = Unlocking(needs to be rooted)
Third Part = Installing CWM/TWRP

1st: download and install framaroot from
(use lastest version,witch at time of this post, is 1.9.1)
2nd: open the app, click on Gandalf and wait untill you see a message to reboot your phone
3rd: once you see the message, then reboot your phone (in case of stock, turn off and then turn on again)


4th: download and install bootunlocker from
5th: open the app, guarantee root if asks, click unlock(if asks for garantee or deny,please click garantee) and follow the on screen instructions
6th: reboot the phone


7th: If you want to install TWRP(this is the multirom TWRP,witch is the standard one with a extra menu that only works with multirom installed)

download and install:
open it, garantee root when it asks.
then UNCHECK ALL the boxes if they are checked, and CHECK ONLY the one that says RECOVERY <some date>
boom all done :P

OR if you want CWM

download and install:
open, garantee root when it asks, click on install or update recovery: Clockwork Mod
then click on Nexus 4, and select the non touch version(or if you want to pay for the premium or do the manual method, you can click on touch, for manual method, go to,click rom manager,search Google Nexus 4, select touch, download the .img and install thru fastboot, or dd command)
Boom all done :P
