Also, if you get stuck on bootloop after unlocking bootloader (This happened to me couple times), do a factory reset in stock recovery to fix:


Thanks to shimp208 for the sideload method and working CWM, ChainFire for awesome SuperSU and to all the developers who are worked on CWM recovery!

So the CWM that was just updated by Koushik on CWM does not work properly or does it work? Was asking based on this

While CWM Recovery is still being fixed
Edit: There's no driver issue if it were on a Mac right? Especially adb sideloading the CWM SuperSu zip?

How do I flash the stock recovery? CWM isn't working and I tried to update the driver like in the video but couldn't find the "manta" that I needed to update. I'm just stuck in bootloop animation now. I'm downloading the stock image right now to try and flash it back to stock..

If you go into fastboot mode then choose recovery to get to the screen with the red triangle, keep pressing the power button and volume buttons randomly until the stock recovery pops up. From there do a factory reset and it'll work, I just did it to mine!

I flashed the CWM recovery img so when I do what you say it takes me to the bootloader screen and says Downloading. No red triangle. It boots into CWM and then after 20 seconds restarts itself and hits the bootanimation loop. Any clue what to do next? Trying to flash the stock image but having issues using cmds in windows cmd

*edit
I cleared cache through cmd and i got to the red triangle...thank ****ing the lord. DTWAZERE, I will remember tonight. Thank you for your help.

Thing is it will delete the CWM recovery when you leave it so you'll have to reflash it, which is why this is so unstable!

I had the exact same thing as you and this is what I did:

Press the power button to turn it off while it says downloading

Hold both volume buttons down and power on to get into fastboot

Choose recovery

Press power and volume buttons randomly when the red triangle appears until you get stock recovery

Choose Factory Reset

Reboot

You should be able to get back into the rom that way,

to root it you need to boot into fastboot again, reflash the recovery, and sideload the superuser apk

Yeah this is exactly what I did and it worked. I'll wait on flashing anything until there's a stable recovery. I was fairly confident in what I was doing until that happened. Not being able to input commands from cmd prompt made me sick so I'll wait for a dev to release something that works without having to quickly install the drivers again within a 15-20 second timeframe. Too much stress.

I'm having the same issue. Stuck on the 2nd splash screen with the Nexus Logo.

I received successful messages after every entry.
