Smile Nexus 4 update help

I have data on the device and tried the OTA 4.4.2 update which failed to complete. I was getting boots loops.

Is there any way I can keep the data and update it to 4.4.2 myself manually.

Many thanks

Are you able to make a nandroid backup before trying other methods to flash 4.4?

Cheers for the assistance, I'm not rooted and the bootloader is locked so not sure, any ideas on what I can do?

Thanks

If you want to install a custom rom, unlocking the bootloader will reset the phone so don't do that yet.

You can try this to unlock the bootloader and install a custom recovery. Once the custom recovery is installed, you can create a nandroid backup.
