Hi,

I am trying to fix my friends nexus 4. It has a unlocked bootloader and was rooted. He had the franco kernel installed and when it was updated the other day, the wifi wouldn't work. The recovery function works and I can download any recovery or boot.img. The problem is whilst trying to fix, he erased all the data on the phone. now there is no OS installed. I believe he was running stock. Their is no zips installed. the problem i have is how can I install the new kk zip and gapps I have downloaded to the device. I cant mount the sd card in the recovery because of no sd card. I have a htc one and am used to putting roms on that. Its just I am stuck trying to fix this. The phone will enter fastboot and Recovery as discussed. Thanks..hope this makes sense

2 options..
1. you need to adb push a rom/gapps to your device while you are in recovery. then flash them after pushing.
2. you need to fastboot flash the factory image while you are in the bootloader.

Hi Thanks for your reply. I am trying to adb push a rom to the device. The computer recognizes the device when I type adb devices in the command prompt when in recovery. The problem is what do I save it to without a sd card. I seen a few videos with the command adb push name.zip /sdcard/ namezip

what do i enter instead of sd card ...thanks again

Just use adb push name.zip /sdcard. There is an internal sdcard
