That is not a "flash" command. That command just temporarily boots your custom recovery from your PC. It does not write anything to your device.

If you want to flash a custom recovery, the command is: fastboot flash recovery customrecovery.img
I do NOT answer technical questions via PM. Post in a thread.

For those who experiencing lost imei and baseband, fastboot flashing the factory image reset might save your day.

I lost my imei and baseband this mid night after uninstalling busybox 1.20.3-stericson from busybox free app, trickster mod free, and flash faux reset kernel, coming from faux beta 006b6 kernel.

Didn't have time to make a proper bugs report since the phone needed to fixed at the morning, primary phone here. Wiping cache from stock or cwm recovery, fix permissions, fastboot flashing bootloader-radio-boot-recovery images and wipe cache from stock recovery didn't help, event factory soft and hard reset didn't work out either. But not until i fastbooted flashing all the factory images reset restored my imei and baseband. Yay!

Learned the hard way. Hehe

no, you don't need root to transfer data to pc and vice versa. plug it in and windows will automatically detect your n4 if you're on windows xp sp3 or above with windows media player 11 or above installed.

as for the auto accept, i would like to know to.

You'll be just fine using the guide on how to install Universal Naked Driver as in first post.

What kind of unexpected shortcuts?

Have you purchased and registered a data plan? You should consult this with your provider, the data charges have nothing to do with android. Hehe

Yes you will. Unlocking and relocking the bootloader, and flashing userdata.img will wipe all of your data on sdcard, make a backup first.

Efrant has warned this issue several time in his amazing guide on how return to stock, please read the whole first page first just to get the big picture ahead.
