[HELP THREAD] Nexus 4. Ask any question.
Rant: this is a bit of a crap idea for a thread. Good intentions but ultimately hides a bunch of reasonable questions with massive conversational pieces on how to root your phone... When there are countless "root my..." Threads anyway.

Rant over, an update regarding my question that no one helped with in the hopes that it proves useful when troubleshooting other phones.

Audio testing/recording programs - will pretty much always use the bottom mic.
Normal phonecalls - expect to hear nothing... The active noise cancellation will rule your voice as being too quiet and transmit nothing if there is an issue with the lower mic.
Google Now/voice - grey circle will fluctuate with voice but never cause a red mic icon or recognise your voice.

All of these things point to a lower microphone issue.

Speakerphone uses the top microphone, so that's an indicator the top mic has failed.

I found out the above from just going with my gut feeling and buying a replacement USB flex ( bought nexus with knackered screen on eBay for 11).

Coincidentally the nexus is pretty damn watertight.

Mine was fully submerged for a good 5 seconds or more in about 20cm of water, placed in sealed bag of silica gel kitty litter for 3 days and when taking apart to replace USB flex noticed that the water detection stickers inside weren't the slightest bit pink, in fact they looked pristine with no signs of water damage throughout the phone, no residual marks or corrosion.

Lots of people have learned a lot because of this thread. Maybe read more than the last 5 pages and you will see that. Good day Sir

Case in point. Unless you have something constructive to add to this thread in response to somebody's question. Don't respond. That way at least folks questions get a sufficient airing rather than just flooded out by dross.

Yes physician heal thyself but hey like I said, both your post and now this one is a perfect example of what not to do in this thread.

Good day to you indeed.

1. Check your debug in your phone.
2. If checked and that tool still doesn't recognize yourphone. Then try another tool or root it manually.
3. If ADB doesn't recognize your phone. Reinstall the driver

Everything was fine until you decided to crap on another members idea for a thread. You who are? This thread has been fine until your worthless two cents about it came along.

OK last time I'll respond to u. Please troll elsewhere the op of this thread likes a lil OT as long as its not over board. So unless u know what your talking about your best bet is to stay silent on the subject. This is a constructive threads supported by many many people and coming into a thread and putting it down is frowned upon here on xda. Please check the rules out before posting that way I see u are new but that's no reason to be ignorant of the rules.

You have to update the android SDK to the latest version. Once you have done so take the fastboot and adb files and copy them from the android SDK folder and place them in the nexus 4 tool kit folder. After you have done that delete the "adb-toolkit and fastboot-toolkit" files then rename the ones you just copied there to adb-toolkit and fastboot-toolkit. Once you have done that everything should work again.

I'm on cm10.1 2/22 nightly with the 4.2.1 boot loader and the .48 radio. Is there any reason for me to update the bootloader, and where would I find the files to do so?
