Default [Q] Stuck in recovery mode

Hello every one,

I'm trying to root my Nexus 4 and I messed up. Can't boot the phone except in recovery mode in TWRP. If a try to boot I got ''Google'' on a black screen and that's it. Don't know what to do from there.

I started to root with Windows 7, but I want to continue with Ubuntu on my computer if it's possible.

Any advice to where to start from?

Thanks,

Martin

What did you do to get to where you are? Without more info I'm going to tell you to boot into the bootloader and flash the factory image

Wait a minute, before you flash the factory images. What exactly happened?

I followed a procedure (in french) and got stock on these lines:

Installation de SuperSU et Busybox :
Vous êtes sur TWRP
Sur le smartphone faites : Wipe > Advanced Wipe > Dalvik Cache (case cochée) > Cache (case cochée) > Swipe to Wipe
Sur le smartphone faites : Mount > System (case cochée)

Wasn't able to wipe Dalvik and after that and for some reasons was not able to connect to the phone from the Windows 7 computer. I'm not certain of what happen after, I probably erase important files on the Nexus with the TWRP menu.

This is what I got when booting in safe mode

Sounds like you wiped your system and internal sd card and now don't have anything to boot into. You could use adb to push a rom zip to your internal sd and install it with twrp. Or you could sideload it with twrp. Or you could flash the factory image and start all over.

I think I can push a rom zip to the sd card. Where can I find a rom?

Thanks

Where you on a particular rom before or just stock?

Edit, this is from the development forum. It's stock 4.4.4. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=50453541

Edit,edit, also, when you flash super su you don't need to do the wipes your French procedure told you to do. Just flash super su in twrp, use the install.
