Don't use the toolkit to flash the rom. Once your phone is rooted you put the rom file on your phone, and boot into recovery to flash the rom.

You can do it that way, or use the "Flash zips" button in advanced utilities and it will take care of everything. It will push the zip and flash it. You can even have it do things like wipe first or backup, all in one automated task. There is also a suggested option to show you the best way to flash Roms or themes.

Everything nice and smooth but I can't root because the recovery fails to download with a goo.im error.
Nevertheless, thanks you so much for this incredible piece of software.
Cheers!

Another user reported to me that their firewall interfered with it. Try temporarily disabling and see if you no longer get the error.

Thumbs up
Thanks!!! It works great for NS4G and plan on it working great for N4

Temporary recovery can flash things just like regular, right?

Would relock mean that it restores to complete factory state, so is still under warranty?

"Flash Stock + Unroot" Then "OEM Lock" and yes you will be back to a pure factory state and therefore your warranty would still apply unless you decided to explicitly disclose that you had unlocked your device.

Thanks man, I had an annoying problem on my 4.2 Nexus 7 with swiping between homescreens and pullback. Reverting back to 4.1.1 seemed to have fixed this

Whenever I try to root my NS4G, it gets stuck on TWRP. I'd prefer CM but the application insists on flashing TWRP every time and the process fails at the "Waiting for your device to finish booting.." message...

Hmm. Had this happen to me the other day, but on my Nexus 7. I suggest you try it again, worked for me when I gave it a second try.

Then again, I was having issues with this toolkit and the one by mskip acting up randomly. Turns out it was just a bad USB cable on my part, replaced it and both toolkits started working fine at that point and I've had no issues since.
