Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you read the FAQ in the second post? There's a special process you have to go through to install the drivers on Windows 8.

Mark or someone can help me? Why I cant install 4.2.1??

Delete the image you downloaded and redownload it. First thing that springs to mind is a bad download.

Download the image from http://goo.im/devs/mskip/stock/occam...y-ca7602f0.tar and try flashing it again.

As far as I know there isnt an update for the Nexus 4 to 4.2.2 yet but if/when it arrives I dont think its a major update and the 4.2.0 or 4.2.1 selection should work fine with it until I can get hold of the image and add support.

There is now a 4.2.2 update for the Nexus 4.

Anybody know if the toolkit will work with it?

what about OTA Root Keeper, if you're already rooted?

well...i did #9 because i needed the stock rom to flash 4.22. rebooted fine but was wondering why i had 2 bars in a t-mobile dead zone.

updated to 4.22 then went to "about phone/status" and my network is listed as AT&T.
in "access points" it lists T-Mobile with everything listed like before [ i'm on the t-mobile $30 plan]
in the "testing" [*#*#4636#*#*] current network: AT&T.

i'm assuming the stock rom caused this?
how urgent is it to get this back to all t-mobile?

thanks

edit: apparantly i now have roaming it switches to AT&T when there i no tmobile signal [i'm on pre-paid]

ToolKit doesn't work in 4.2.2 for me. Can't restore My Data. It shows current ADB status as offline
The drivers actually work because I can use other toolkits to boot into recovery and so on. But there is no chance with this toolkit. Is there any other way to get the .bak file onto my phone?
