    at 2:47 you cut the video, how long did it actually take to go into fast boot mode? In the video it seems that it only took a few seconds but I have been waiting now for several minutes and still no fast boot.

  24. TheAntonico00

  25. Giedrius Giedraitis

    Thanks!! helpful video

  26. DJ Hayes

    Thanks a lot for this……I was trying to use adb mode and I kept getting an error message saying file was corrupted on every single attempt. Downloaded this toolkit from your video and worked like a charm. I don’t get what I was doing wrong seeing i was downloading same file but whatever, I got root on 4.3 so thanks.

    Hey, to anyone who can answer me.. I already have a rooted N4 running PA 3.98 I was just wondering if these adb drivers/process will work on a fresh computer because my current one shit the bed and I’m trying to access my CWM backups and transfer to PC so I can clean out my storage..?? Hope that wasn’t too confusing.

  64. nico raka

    doesnt boot into teamwinrecovery project says no command when i press recovery mode please help!!!!

  65. stoova

    I have the same problem. Also Recovery mode stopped working.

  66. stoova

    OK, I selected usb debugging again and it worked.

  67. stoova

    To make it clear: I opened Recovery Menu in N-Cry, then I started fastboot mode, selected Nexus 4, selected Team Win Project Recovery, clicked start. I got message that file exist and asked if I want to overwrite. I pressed no, but I got md5 checksum error, so I overwrote the file and then the process went okay. After reboot SuperSU showed message that it needs to update binaries. I pressed OK and after reboot everything is fine.

  68. Armin Graf

    same problem…

  69. oXbOxr00X

    Turn the device on, load the power to 100%. Be sure u have PTP and not MPT selected. Disconnect USB .Turn Device off. Power on device with Vol. down and power button. then u are in the fastboot mode.
    reconnect the device over USB and hit the flash button again. when uts done (N-CRY tell you) disconnect from USB Turn device off and back on Vol. down+Power … sometimes its a lil bitch…

    Best video ever. Thanks, I have my Nexus 4 4.3 rooted :’D

  75. Luke Lam

    (Y) Thanks mate :)

  76. Kra Huynh

    i can’t copy Super Su to N4 . Are you make sure u do that with PTP or MTP ?

  77. Kenneth Zerafa

    Just figured out you need to install ADB Driver first…
    From N-Cry, click Driver Setup; and it should download the drivers. Disconnect and reconnect phone and it should work…

  84. tharmendra wemel

    when you root the phone, will all the data be wiped if i use this
    particular method?

  85. adrian

    do you need to download the n-cry toolkit only or do you also install the google drivers??

  86. kev2k11

    Will this wipe out my phone?

  87. J Chan

    this video and the update 4.3 video was extremely helpful. Updated now to
    4.3 rooted. Thank you and keep up the good work!

  88. Jagermeister

    thank boss :)

  89. Don Martin

    Is rooting your phone and installing something like CyangenMod similar
    (pardon my ignorance)? Can you do one and not the other?

  90. Mike Peterson

    All of it works fine till i start recovery mode, and get the ‘no command’
    robot. I did the up+power thing, but i don’t know what i’m supposed to do
    from there….help plz

  91. aSHYian0

    I also received the “No Command” android as Mike Peterson and Game4Cook did
    INSTEAD of the Team Win screen when I entered Recovery Mode. Please help!

  92. aSHYian0

    I figured it out– for those having issues with the “No Command” screen,
    you need to unlock the bootloader. He says in the video that in 4.3 it is
    already unlocked, but my phone (along with everyone else having this issue,
    I presume) has it locked even with version 4.3.

    Now I’m just working on how much backtracking I’ll have to do to salvage
    this whole tutorial and make use of it.

  93. aSHYian0

    GOT IT. So I started again from the drag and drop of the “SuperSU.zip” in
    to “Internal Storage” because my Nexus was formatted after unlocking
    bootloader.

    Next “Recovery Menu” = “Fastboot Mode” then re-installed TWRP then
    restarted to the fastboot menu (by holding the volume-down button and power
    button simultaneously) then clicked volume-up until I got to “Recovery
    Mode” and pressed the power button and VIOLA, Team Win Recovery Project
    screen.

    NO MORE “No Command” SCREEN.

    Just unlock bootloader and start the tutorial over from the point I did,
    you should be GOOD TO GO.

  94. Fuzed Studios

    im i the only one with n cry in a diffrent language?

  95. Delayne Mareikura-edmonds

    Hey there, my phone was already rooted and I accidently clicked the
    download new version. But now this twrp thing shows up and 4 coloured balls
    keep showing. Cant even start up my phone anymore. Hellp please?

  96. Don Martin

    At 2.23, are you dragging the whole .ZIP file or just one part?
    Also, I’ve already updated to 4.4 – do these instructions still apply?
