Default [Q] I deleted my os for my Nexus 4

So I wanted to refresh my phone from the start and in the process i did a format data wipe not knowing what it meant and now i'm stuck with no os and i cant adb sideload because any computer i go to says "driver descriptor failed" and i left usb debugging off and now i'm stuck in boot loop. Please Help !!

Stop and take a breath.

Right this happened to me execpt I had no idea how to use adb, download a toolkit, I used Wug Fresh but I am sure it can work in any. Then delete all the drivers for your nexus 4 and then download the universal drivers. Then perform the battery pull (push the power and volume up for 5 sec) and boot into fastboot (power + up buttons). Flash to boot with the status soft-bricked. It should boot up and good luck.

Stop worrying about the debugging already lol, when you boot in fastboot (volume down + power button) you do not need debugging because it is ON in fastboot
