Exclamation [Q] Bootlop after unlocking bootloader + flashing cwm

Hi Everyone, I'm new to the Nexus 4, and I unlocked the bootloader and installed the CWM Recovery using this guide. http://au.ibtimes.com/articles/53036...at-install.htm

Everything went correctly and after I installed CWM and wanted to reboot my device, it asked to remove the stock recovery, I said Yes (there was no mention of this in the article, but i remembered how annoying this was with a previous device, so i agreed to that), as I needed to install Superuser from a ZIP, i selected No when i was prompted to root the device (from CWM). after those two questions, the phone rebooted, and now it's in a bootloop (on the bubbles boot screen, (4.4.2). Is there any way to fix this?.

Try going into recovery and doing a factory reset or wipe cache.

It's a bug with Nexus devices and bootloader unlocking. After unlocking the bootloader, you need to do a full reboot before going back in and flashing a custom recovery. See the article below about the bug. You need to re-flash the stock recovery to get out of the bootloop.
