Flashing recovery on Nexus 4
08 November 2013

Before that

Make sure you have unlocked your mako. Follow my previous post. Assuming you’ve done that.

Why ?

Well Nexus 4 comes with its own recovery, so why are we flashing our own anyway. The reason is that the default recovery doesn’t let’s you flash custom ROMs and other software you’ll wish to flash. The app of your custom app gives you numerous options like backup and ROM management that will make your life easy. So let’s do it:

 ./adb reboot bootloader 

and your phone will restart into the bootloader

 sudo ./fastboot flash recovery /path/to/recovery.zip

to flash your chosen recovery.

Happy flashing!!! [Clockworkmod]: http://www.clockworkmod.com [TWRP]: http://teamw.in/project/twrp2
