There are a few methods found on XDA for installing recovery, so what is the recommended procedure to follow to obtain the recovery menu, thus allowing the flashing of zip files?

Of course, on my Samsung it was just a matter of flashing an insecure kernal with Odin, but I'm a bit confused on how to do it on the Nexus 4.

Edit: I'm really looking for advice on which thread to consult for a safe/reliable method to obtain CWM.

Pop http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1995440 there ;)

If you are rooted you can install TWRP but downloading the goo.im app from playstore and selecting Install Recovery Script in settings. :)

    hey guys,

    as some of you may know, we have been working on 4.3 Slim pretty much ever since 4.3 AOSP code was released.... currently, these early Slim 4.3 builds are labeled as "alpha" but overall are pretty stable... im here to share with you one of our 4.3 builds so that you guys can do some testing for us and to enjoy ;)

    bugs:
    -swipe on keyboard causes fc
    -theme manager fcs (disable themes provider)
    -few QS tiles have bad format

    downloads:
    rom: http://tinyw.in/LCxI
    temporary 4.3 slim gapps: http://tinyw.in/1nFO
    (4.3 libs with non-updated 4.2.2 apk's -
    the new apk's will be released with last 4.2.2 build)


    some tips/hints:

    SU - works well for the most part, just in developer options change the root access from "apps" to "apps & adb"
    contacts/phone - Slim features are missing (though TRDS is still there)

    let us know how it works for you guys just dont complain over every litle bug! remember, it is still an alpha even if it may not seem like it :),

    Yes the source is released and we're working on it.
    We'll release it when we feel it's ready to be released.

    We'll ignore any further questions about 4.3 until then.

    bugs:
    -swipe on keyboard causes fc
    -few QS tiles have bad format

    fixes:
    -themes

    downloads:
    rom: http://tinyw.in/3o2y
    new 4.3 slim gapps: http://tinyw.in/jIUg

    1. you do not get the magical hint: without proper log we cannot do anything

    2. a lot roms just left either half of the 4.3 merge or dropp many features. Both not the way slim is doing. And I think alpha3.1 is quiet stable

    3. you know this is an alpha version?

    4. whatever......we do not need to support that framework.....but we would look into it....no proper log...no solution

    I do not know if you have in any kind an idea how much work it was to merge in 4.3 into Slim......complete AOSP changes were about 5 million line changes....alone frameworks_base over 2 million.....me and gmillz did it about 1 week night and day.....2 persons....sleeping 2 hours a day just to bring it bugfree up.

    CM has the advantage to have power off a lot developers...other roms just drop features to get it fast up

    and surprise surprise.....SlimBean has still all features and working and fully 4.3 merged in...and you do not believe it we did it that clean that a lot non nexus devices will get as well very fast 4.3. And that is the next point....we do not provide only nexus devices...would make our life a lot easier and we would have way less conflicts with the nexus devices

    maybe you should think about it

    and that after 11 days aosp released the source...unbelievable

    Halo is not coming, not the current way at least. What's in gerrit is not for public view, betas refrain from posting it. If we decide to include ( far from a decision ) you will see it in github our version of it. Let's stay away from the halo discussion. I don't want to read anymore about it.
    Thanks
