[Q] Nexus 4 won't connect to PC
Hi, I can't get my computer, Lenovo y410p running Windows 8.1 to recognize my Nexus 4 in the file explorer. The Nexus Root Toolkit also will say "no fastboot device connected" when it is plugged in via USB port. However,
Stock Nexus 4
Build number kot49h
Computer won’t recognize phone in file explorer.
Enabling USB debugging has no effect.
Enabling and disabling MTP has no effect either.
However, when I am connected in MTP mode my comp recognizes the phone in the “safely remove hardware and eject media” in the notification area of the taskbar.
I can connect in Camera (PTP) mode – my computer will show my phone in the file explorer.
I’m using a Lenovo y410p running windows 8.1
I’ve used the Nexus root toolkit to uninstall and reinstall the drivers and this hasn’t fixed the problem.
I’ve also used the device manager to uninstall all drivers and this hasn’t fixed the problem.
I’ve tried 3 different USB cables – this hasn’t fixed the problem.
I don’t have a fast charge app installed.
I want to root the phone so that I can use Button Remapper to assign one of my volume buttons to be my power button. My power button is currently broken, forcing me to use Awesome On to turn my phone’s screen on and off. I’d also like to be able to load music on to my phone.
If anybody has any idea wtf is wrong with my phone I’d love for some help. Thanks.
