Nexus 4 toolkit

Most of tried custom ROM for Nexus 4 and mine favorite is Paranoid ROM for Nexus 4 but I wanted to revert back to the stock ROM for some reason, so here is the quick easy tutorial for you if you want to switch back to the stock ROM. Before we start backup your contacts and messages from your phone if you need (you don’t need to backup the contacts as its already backed up in your Google cloud storage).

Here at the steps to switch back to Stock ROM in Nexus 4

  • Install All-in-one Toolkit, and you must have adb installed in your system
  • Now make a nandroid backup of your device, just in case anything goes wrong
  • Now download the stock ROM Android 4.2.2 for Nexus 4
  • And paste the file into put_google_factory_image_here (the folder should be in C:\Google Nexus 4 ToolKit)
  • Now open the toolkit and turn on USB debugging mode in your phone
  • Select option 9 from the toolkit and follow the instruction accordingly
  • Alright! now you have successfully installed Stock ROM in Nexus 4
