If you’re like me you’ve just received your Nexus 4, or it’s in the mail to you now. After the first day has past and you want to do some fun stuff with it, how do you get started?
Before you go further, as with most stuff in life, what we’re about to show you isn’t without risk. You could break your phone. If you’re willing to take the risk, go and grab a copy of the Nexus 4 Toolkit, and press play to see how to get into fastboot, unlock your bootloader, root, install a terminal emulator, and confirm that we do, indeed have root access. We’ll also show you how to quickly install ClockworkMod Recovery using ROM Manager, just in case you’ve forgotten how to do that.
