Does automatically install Clockwork recovery?

If you check the "flash custom recovery" checkbox under root, then yes.. however it defaults to flash TWRP, unless the user selects CWM in the options menu:
options_1.6.0.png


It also will take care of renaming the system files to ensure its sticks, and it will install the busybox installer (free) app by Stericson.

Nice. Will be nice to have this as a backup option :). Definitely easier to use in terms of UI thank the Nexus 4 Root toolkit by mskip heh.

That backup option - is there a way, once unlocked and rooted, to grab my apps from the backup that were wiped, but not the entire thing? I downloaded about 8GB of apps before rooting, so I have no way to backup, I think. :[

Alright did it, rooted. Used the backup option a couple times trying to get it to work all the way, but for some reason, it only backed up about half of my apps.

Hey guys quick two questions:

1) When I was unrooting through this toolkit, it said that there were three files that were not found in the directory, but continued to go through the process regardless, and it appears that I was successful. I can't remember the names as the command prompt ended before I had the chance to screenshot it. Am I okay?

2) If I go through the unrooting process through this toolkit, and then the OEM Lock process, does that basically put my phone back to the way it was when I received it?

Thanks!

Thanks for this, while I know my way around the manual commands okay, this will make everything a breeze for me tomorrow when my Nexus 4 arrives.

Will turn on, get the newest OTA, then unlock and root with your app.

Out of interest, can you still get OTA updates on stock with a custom recovery installed, or do you need to keep the stock recovery? I plan on sticking with stock until the custom ROMs get more stable, so I will stay on a default recovery if I can't use OTA updates. Otherwise I'll just flash a custom recovery with your app and get it done for future use.

1.) Yes, those are sig files. They are always missing. For whatever reason google doesn't include sig files in their packages and fastboot still checks for them. I guess google doesn't bother because they are redundant considering you need to be unlocked flash stock with fastboot. I can't suppress that output, so it just always will say that.. no worries.

2.) Yes, not basically.. exactly. Everything will be wiped, and you device will be exactly as it was when you received it.

No, you need the stock recovery. That said, in advanced utilities of the toolkit their is a button just for restoring stock recovery, so you can just do that if you want to when an OTA comes out (assuming you didn't make any other big system mods) if you had previously flashed a custom recovery. Also.. you can use temp recovery whenever you want as long as you have access to a computer with the toolkit. :)

Are these the steps to unlock and root and be able to receive OTA updates?

1. Click on "Full Driver Installation Guide"
2. Connect phone to computer
3. Click on Unlock
4. Click on Root and leave "Custom Recovery" box unchecked.

Then, after OTA updates are installed, re-click "Root" since OTA update will unroot?

    According to Wugs twitter, we should have some news regarding the updated version... I've been waiting for so long! Haha

    Sent from my Nexus 7 using xda premium

    Yes, Here it is ;) Version 1.6.3 is up now and the updater package is also live via the in-built updater. Enjoy!
    (Updated changelog coming shortly)

    I guess its already released..official images of 4.3 by google on their site

    Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 4 Beta

    Yeah, it was just updated on Google's site. I am just one person :)

    In the toolkit turn on auto updating in the options. When I get back from the gym around 6/6:30 I will go home and update the necessary things and upload necessary files for full 4.3 support.

    So ETA would be sometime after that this evening.

    If any of you are impatient you can go ahead and flash the 4.3 factory image from Google's site with the "I downloaded the image myself" option in the flash stock interface. Then when it asks you for the hash, enter the corresponding md5 value posted on Google's site. Then you can root with "any build".

    I always will try my best to keep the toolkit up to date with the latest files. It just got released today, I will have it updated tonight. Cool? :)
