Question [Q] HELP I lost root on my nexus 4

I updated my nexus 4 from paranoid 4.2.2 to 4.4.x beta2 I think I flash franko custom kernel and thats why I lost my root how can I root my phone ?

I didn't like the beta version can I go back from 4.4 to 4.2.2?

Did you try flashing SuperSU from recovery?

Yes you can root your phone. Download the SuperSU and flash it via Custom recovery. Yes you can go back to 4.2.2. Make sure to flash 4.2.2 bootloader.

I found a guide that works great for downgrading. Instead of using 4.4 image; you will use 4.2.2 and follow below guide.

1. Download 4.2.2 PA ROM, Gapps, 4.2.2 Bootloader and 4.2.2 radio. Copy all the files to your phone.
2. Reboot to recovery.
3. Flash boot loader and radio.
4. Reboot recovery.
5. Wipe factory / data reset.
6. Flash PA ROM + Gapps zip.
7. Wipe cache partition + dalvik cache.
8. Reboot system and enjoy!
