Before you begin:
  • Please make sure Fastboot is configured and properly installed on your computer.

How to flash a factory image:
  1. Download Android 4.4 Factory Image (occam-krt16o-factory-75ccae7a.tgz) for the Nexus 4 on your PC, if you haven’t already.
  2. Connect your Nexus 4 to your computer using the USB cable.
  3. Reboot into the Fastboot/Bootloader Mode by using the key combo.
  4. Navigate to where Fastboot is located and extract the files there.
  5. From the factory image files in your Fastboot directory that you just extracted; locate a file called "flash-all.bat" and run it.
    Edit the flash-all.bat file and remove the wipe command (-w) if you do not want it to wipe your device. (thx kzoodroid)
  6. Now wait and watch as the process is completed.
  7. Done

Additional Things:
  • You will need to flash your recovery (TWRP or CWM) if you want it back. The factory image returns your device to the stock recovery.
    Reboot into bootloader and run the following in CMD - "fastboot flash recovery nameofrecovery.img"
  • If you want root, flash SuperSU.

I remember there was a way to install the factory image without deleting the data. i.e: on a complete stock phone

I just can't remember how I did it last time when 4.3 images were released.

Any help on this would be highly appreciated. (I have checked few threads, and they all talk about the process deleting all the data)

Use BootUnlocker for Nexus and unlock your phone. If in the past you already unlocked it, it will not wipe you data, but for be sure just do a full backup before unlocking... or take the risk.:p
No...lol
I have an unlocked bootloader, with stock recovery and rom. Waiting for the OTA

My point is it's not possible to have a LOCKED bootloader and also be rooted with a custom recovery.

I think you miss worded your question.

    For those who get stuck at the spinning google screen, boot back into the bootloader and try locking and then unlocking it, simply using:
    fastboot oem lock
    followed by
    fastboot oem unlock

    This is the only thing that worked for me.

    Yeah.

    The question wasn't about stock launcher.

    Should I download SDK again just to be sure?
    Nope, your not doing it right. You can't launch a command prompt at random and use the fastboot commands. Download the attachment, extract the files on to your desktop. Put all the .img files that you get from the factory image into this folder[only .img files, no subfolders at all]. Now hold on to Shift key and right click. Open command window here and do the following.
    1) Make sure your computer recognizes your device by typing: fastboot devices
    2)fastboot flash bootloader bootloader-mako-makoz10o.img (or whatever the name of the bootloader image that you downloaded).
    3) Reboot: fastboot reboot-bootloader
    4) Flash the radio: fastboot flash radio radio-mako-m9615a-cefwmazm-2.0.1700.48.img (or whatever the name is of the radio image that you downloaded).
    5) Reboot: fastboot reboot-bootloader
    6) Flash the system partition: fastboot flash system system.img
    7) Flash the kernel/ramdisk: fastboot flash boot boot.img
    8)fastboot format cache

    Once you do this, boot into recovery, do a factory reset,flash SuperSU 1.65 and boot
