First post, longtime lurker.

FInally I was brave enough to play around my Nexus 4. Using ADB and Fastboot, I unlocked the bootloader and install custom recovery (tried both twrp and hen cwm). However when I reboot the system, it gets stuck on the flashing 4-circles screen. I had wiped the cache and others, including factory reset, but it is not rebooting.


On the first attempt , I installed twrp, it went well. During the reboot, TWRP asked if I want to unroot to which I agreed. Then that it went to flashing loop. I don't think the SU file was in the phone.

Phone is stock 4.4.2

Please help.

Thanks in advance.

I could get into the bootloader. After massive web-search, I managed to solve the problem using Wugfresh Toolkit. I'm restoring everything now.
Thanks for the concern.

You should have restored the phone using this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=47156064

Once you learn how to use it you could have restored your phone with out losing all your apps and data
