As there is now an official version of CWM Recovery I updated this thread now. Thanks to everyone who used my version and helped me. I will keep on what I'm doing and maybe there will be other interesting things I will release.

The official CWM Recovery by Koush can be downloaded here:
Images to flash via fastboot
touch-version: http://download2.clockworkmod.com/recoveries/recovery-clockwork-touch-6.0.4.7-mako.img
nontouch-version: http://download2.clockworkmod.com/recoveries/recovery-clockwork-6.0.4.7-mako.img

Flashable zips
touch-version: https://www.mediafire.com/?nx826v1jo0bdqdj
nontouch-version: https://www.mediafire.com/?69kmvtcvgooc0gv

For the fastboot images:
You can try this out and boot it via
Code:
fastboot boot recovery-clockwork(-touch)-6.0.4.7-mako.img
(only Android 4.2.X)
Code:
fastboot -c "lge.kcal=0|0|0|x" boot recovery-clockwork(-touch)-6.0.4.7-mako.img
(Android 4.3 and above)
If you want to flash it you can use
Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork(-touch)-6.0.4.7-mako.img
If you have the touch-version use this commands without '(' and ')' but with its content.
If you have the nontouch-version use this commands without '(' and ')' and its content-


Outdated as all new recoveries already provide this function.
I also want to present you my revert recovery disabler.
As you know if you flash CWM on Nexus 4 it reverts back to the stock recovery. This patch prevents this. This is not needed at the moment for CWM as CWM offers the possibly to disable the revert by itself.
You can download my revert recovery disabler here: http://www.mediafire.com/?78fkhdh5icz3zdg
This disabler is compatible with mskip's toolkit (uses the same methode).
To use it boot in CWM recovery and flash this as a zip.
If you want to restore the default option and make your Nexus 4 reverting back to the stock recovery you can flash the enabler: http://www.mediafire.com/?19enww985e2gpnc


Thanks to:
Stryder5 providing some information
Kstarz for some testing and providing information
mskip for his toolkit and giving me the idea to do this
pankaj88 for his sample update zip

Old thread said:
I just want to release my CWM Touch Recovery for the Nexus 4.
This version also allows to flash zips from internal storage (and hopefully other storage related stuff).

If you want to you can download it here: http://www.mediafire.com/?f9b9av06ui5vcdm (UPDATED 11/16/2012)
Using it is at your own risk!

Please test it first via
Code:
fastboot boot cwm-recovery-mako.img
Flashing is not supported at the moment as secured boot prevents from booting flashed recovery. Please note that you need an unlocked bootloader.
For reverting back to original recovery use this one: http://www.mediafire.com/?57zmq7yw089gcr8 (not needed at the moment as only booted recovery works at the moment)

Thanks to:
Stryder5 for testing and providing some information
Kstarz for testing and providing some information
Also thanks to Koush for creating CWM Recovery and to the other devs for Nexus 4 making it a really good device.

If you have any questions ask below. I will rework this post later the day.

To clarify, I can confirm the boot method will allow you to boot the recovery and flash a zip file. I did not attempt to flash this as my recovery yet.

I tried to flash the recovery instead of booting from it, but that doesn't work. I ran the command:
Code:
fastboot flash recovery cwm-recovery-mako.img

When I try to boot into recovery after that, it'll show the Google logo twice, then proceed with the regular boot.

I think this is because Secure Boot is still enabled.

If I could I would provide you that information but as I only used the CWM's online builder I can't tell you that. If you need some information you can pm me :)

To all: As there is a new update in the sources I am currently syncing the sources and building an new version. Furthermore I am working on a possibility to make the CWM permanent (and easy to do so even without root; I know already what I have to do).

The hardware is calles mako, the software itself has the codename occam. As of my building methode it was automatically called mako ;)
Hey do you mind if I put this recovery in the Toolkit for now until koush has released the official cwm?

Is it touch or non touch? What version is it?

Mark.

No problem at all. Just give credits and use it. This is a touch recovery.
If koush will release CWM for Nexus 4 it won't be different to this (except he changes some sources).

Man I can't wait to see some custom ROM's outta here. The phone is sweet and snappy but I've had a few problems that I'm not sure if they're hardware or software related. Quadrant scores are around 4400-4900, the phone rings hot and I'm getting the worst speed test results. Like I get 11-18 MBS on my gs2 and I'm getting like 2-3mbs now. I got two weeks before I can return it so I hope it just needs to stettle. Anyhoo. Good luck guys! :)

Flashing does not work at the moment. Only booting via fastboot even with official CWM Recovery.

Sorry, I misunderstood you. I thought this bugfix would allow us to flash the recovery in our devices, then I realized that the bugfix was what let us boot it, as you said a few messages back. Anyway, there you have the official build link.
