It sounds like you've encountered a common bug among people who reflash--your phone is the 16GB model but thinks it's the 8GB model. See this thread for fixing instructions: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2033692
The important thing is to use the STOCK recovery (don't worry, you can put your custom recovery back afterwards if you want).

I love this phone, just wish there was the ability to include a 4way boot. Is there a flashable zip that can give me that functionality?

You have to use a custom recovery for something like that.

Sorry for bothering you guys here. I'm a big noob when it comes to the more difficult things about android.

Can someone maybe give me a quick instruction how I can root my stock untouched N4 without installing a custom recovery or show me the thread(s) where I can read how it works? That would be awesome


Or is it easier to just root and install CWM recovery on my N4 and when an official Google update comes out, to just install it via a .zip file through CWM?


EDIT:
I just saw this thread [[NEXUS 4 TOOLKIT V1.3.0] Drivers, Backup, Unlock, Root, Flash, Mods + MUCH MORE] from mskip. Is it possible to just use this program to perform my desired actions? That would be great, a program for dummies

Thanks for the hint, but I just installed the LG Google Nexus 4 ToolKit of mskip. It made a very good impression to me. It's quite noob-friendly

Can someone tell me which option I have to take when I just want to root my N4 (stock android) without changing the recovery?
Is it option 1? (I don't understand half of the words...)

Any of the choices will require the recovery to be changed, just root it normally, forgetting about the recovery and then flash the stock recovery later on if you wish
edit: I'm not 100% sure about the recovery requirement, but this method will work 100%

It mainly depends on clock speed, UV, ROM optimizations, and display brightness. That's a pretty hefty day. How bright do you think your gonna have the screen? Also, will this be on stock, or are you gonna flash into a world of wonder?
