Jeff Williams3 years ago
Yes. I thought it was supposed to be 4.2.2.
Jeff Williams3 years ago
Just curious. I bought the phone off Craigslist from a googler 2 weeks ago, but just noticed it today. +2
Chris Clark3 years ago
There was a leaked 4.3 ROM out a while ago, it's possible the person you got it from flashed that leaked ROM.+3
Jason Newman3 years ago
+Jeff Williams if you're being sincere and not trolling, would you be so kind as to do a system dump and send it my way so I can make a flash able zip? +13
Ty Foreman3 years ago
+Tommy Nunno look at the radio .83, don't think that is just a build.prop edit+13
Jason Newman3 years ago
+Chris Clark the leak was only for the s4. There aren't any 4.3 builds for the Nexus 4 yet. If he'll do a system dump I'll have a 4.3 rom up on xda within an hour or two. +15

I'm not sure how to go about doing a system dump. Any info on how to do this would be appreciated (using a Mac).

What are the odds that we get a leak from a random Craigslist transaction? +12
Jason Newman3 years ago
+Axel Mériot they're not good, but I'll be able to tell you for sure once my hands are on that system dump
Jeff Williams3 years ago
Here's a stupid question, should I wipe my data before I do a system dump? Sorry, but I'm a basic user and don't want to give away all my info.
Jason Newman3 years ago
If you don't have any issue with wiping it, it won't hurt anything. The only thing you'll need to do after wiping is go to developer settings and enable usb debugging
Edgar Flores3 years ago
Interesting! +Ricardo Guzman 
Tobias Machulski3 years ago
First leaked 4.3 for our N4? Am I dreaming or is this the real deal?

I want to believe!

Joe Ramirez3 years ago
+Jeff Williams Try entering your user admin password? At least that's how it works on Ubuntu...+1
Jason Newman3 years ago
+Jeff Williams no, your bootloader doesn't need to be unlocked. Once you've enabled usb debugging you will be able to run ADB commands. Is your mac recognizing your device when you plug it in?
Hamzah Malik3 years ago
Just a quick way to check if this is 4.3 go to apps all and click contacts the version number should say 4.3 take a screen of that and we can be sure this is real.+2

Joel Torres3 years ago
Woah. How did you get it?
Tobias Machulski3 years ago
rooting for Jeff to do this :D (it's so late here... )
Jason Newman3 years ago
+Jeff Williams have you installed the Nexus 4 drivers on your mac yet? I believe that could be your issue. If you've already installed the android sdk you should be able to install the drivers fairly straightforward and easily. +1
Roger Baird3 years ago
Do they have a universal driver for Android for Macs, like they do for Windows? Maybe that's the issue.
Joe Ramirez3 years ago
On windows the drivers will install themselves if you plug it in and let it sit long enough, not sure if the same applies for Mac.
Ian Fijolek3 years ago
+Jason Newman no adb drivers for Mac needed.+3
Jarman Liu3 years ago
I thought Mac didn't need those drivers.
Jeff Williams3 years ago
Drivers are installed. 
Alfonso R3 years ago
This should be the Hot Topic of Google++5
Brandon Jiang3 years ago
no drivers for macs, but +Jeff Williams did you set up ADB for it? that's what was the main trouble for me
here's an xda guide on how to, so that adb commands will actually work.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=9842005

Brandon Jiang3 years ago
since terminal isn't quite the same as command prompt
Jason Newman3 years ago
+Ibrahim Önder we need a system dump of Jeff's nexus 4. With a system dump we can build a flash able rom for everyone. +1
Brandon Jiang3 years ago
so people who want to help, anyone want to create a group chat on hangouts?
Ian Fijolek3 years ago
+Brandon Jiang it is a command prompt. No trouble there.

The missing piece is generally getting the command adb to even do anything at all. The fix is generally adding it to your $PATH. In this case I think he is in the platform-tools directory so he is just executing it directly with ./adb instead of from the $PATH. Should be fine.
Save the file on the desktop.
Extract the file and move the obtained folder to the root of your hard drive.
Rename the folder Android-SDK.
On the device you need to open terminal.
On the same enter “C:/Android-SDK /tools/android”.
The file manager will be displayed.
From there select “Available Packages -> Android Repository”.
Up next choose “Android SDK Platform-tools” and click on install selected button.
ADB is now there on your computer. In order to set it up you will have to add the “export PATH=${PATH}:/Android-SDK/tools:/platform-tools” line on the end of the ~/.bashrc or ~/.profile or ~/.bash_profile configuration files
If that file is not there you can anytime create it by choosing “~/.profile”.
Jason Newman3 years ago
I've never used a mac for anything with my Nexus, so I may be at a disadvantage here. But, it looks like +Ian Fijolek could be our saving grace.
Joe Ramirez3 years ago
+Jeff Williams try restarting the phone in the bootloader (shut off phone, then power on while holding both volume keys at the same time). Then plug the phone into USB, it should automatically install the adb fastboot driver, which might be the one you need.
Roger Baird3 years ago
But like that other guy said, couldn't he look at the version number of the contacts app just to make sure previous owner didn't just edit the build.prop?

If that's the case dude did a good job editing the build number and kernel date also.

Interesting...
Jason Newman3 years ago
+Ibrahim Önder at first I wasn't, so I asked for the system dump as proof. I seriously don't think anyone would be going through the trouble of doing the dump if they were trolling. With that system dump we can have it early, and start building other roms from it.
Jason Newman3 years ago
+Ian Fijolek keep an eye on the thread. We will need your mac experience for this.

#nexus4  is on freenode, but not sure if the OP is on IRC (or still here).
Jeff Williams3 years ago
So here's my problem. I can transfer files via Android file transfer, but I cannot run any command from terminal. I've tried ./fastboot device, but it just waits for the devices to respond which doesn't happen. ANy thoughts? 
Justin Wommack3 years ago
Why doesn't someone remotely connect to his computer and do this for him?!?+4
Jason Newman3 years ago
+Ian Fijolek I don't think he's disappeared on us. He has been working at it and responding on here sporadically. He's probably using the same pc to respond on here and pull the dump
Shannon Solomon3 years ago
Just committing to this post :D
Jason Newman3 years ago
If this was a windows pc I'd say it was due to the drivers, but with Mac I can only guess. So your able to push and pull files from your phone through your pc, but you're not able to get ADB to respond?
Brian Bentsen3 years ago
+Jeff Williams have you unlocked developer mode?
Jason Newman3 years ago
+Jeff Williams go to your settings/about phone. Then click build number repeatedly until it says (you are now a developer) then go to developer options and enable usb debugging
Ian Fijolek3 years ago
Looks like he can push pull through MTP but not ADB. Should verify the settings in the rom I suppose.

You could try powering the phone off. Once off hold Power and Volume Down. That should put you in fastboot mode. Then try
 
fastboot devices

I suggest this because fastboot doesn't require any settings on the phone to be enabled.
Ian Fijolek3 years ago
As for #nexus4 being full. It's relevant to the channel anyway and it's been dead all week. I'm in there 24/7.

+Alfonso Rocha they can't enable LTE as the device is not certified for it.  The original was a goof.  Or that's how I understand it
Rob M3 years ago
Loving the hype ! We are all excited ! +1
I'm the guy who got the original GPe Device dumps. We had the exact same issue with the non-retail devices. It seems like a newer version of sdk/platform-tools is needed to do anything with Googler devices. If all you want is a /system dump:

Install Astro from Google Play
Copy the entire /system folder
Paste to the SDcard folder
transfer to your Mac.

The ROM devs will have to sort out the file permissions, but it's better than nothing.

Yup, create a dump (dd) from the corresponding partition via ADB (that's all I know, I have no idea how to do this. Sorry I am of no further help).

If you have something like terminal emulator installed (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jackpal.androidterm), this is what you have to type in to get all the images necessary for the radio and bootloader: 

su
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/modem of=/sdcard/modem.img
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/aboot of=/sdcard/aboot.img
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/rpm of=/sdcard/rpm.img
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/sbl2 of=/sdcard/sbl2.img
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/sbl3 of=/sdcard/sbl3.img
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/tz of=/sdcard/tz.img

Then get the files off your device somehow.

hey +efrant xda do one of these partitions include the bootloader? they might have updated that...my guess is that it's sbl2 or sbl3

efrant xda3 years ago
+Jeff Williams Sorry, that was my mistake. There was a typo in my post. I've edited now, and it is now correct.
+efrant xda Can you pull both radio and bootloader at the same time?

+Jeff Williams thanks for doing this.
efrant xda3 years ago
+Edwin Rivera The commands I posted will dump the radio image and the 5 bootloader-related images to /sdcard. Then he just has to pull the images off his devices and upload.+3
Jeff Williams3 years ago
+efrant xda are each done individually?
efrant xda3 years ago
Jason Newman3 years ago
+efrant xda hopefully he sees that you updated the commands. He may be able to do it while at work if it's a quick process. One if us will need to give him somewhere to send it. I doubt he has an account on any hosting sites.
Jeff Williams3 years ago
su (enter)
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/modem of=/sdcard/modem.img (enter)

says permission denied
If he can send it to +efrant xda he can package it up in a cwm zip

+Jeff Williams Then you do not have root. You will need to reboot into recovery, flash Chainfire's su package (http://download.chainfire.eu/339/SuperSU/UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.41.zip) and then try again. In order to use the dd command, you need root.
efrant xda3 years ago

Jason Newman3 years ago
+efrant xda I'm about to be getting ready for work. Are you going to post the radio and bootloader to XDA once Jeff is able to pull them?
efrant xda3 years ago
+Jason Newman Absolutely. If Jeff can dump the images and get them to me, I'll package them up in flashable format and post them.+2

+Jeff Williams Yes, try that one first. Flash it in recovery, then boot normally, and open the terminal emulator and type su and then press enter (and it should prompt you for superuser access - allow). If your prompt changes to #, then you have root. If not, try flashing the zip I linked to.

+Jeff Williams Thanks for all your help Jeff. A little token of appreciation: confirmation #: 5H5799916P647481R+2
Bootloader confirmed working. Version z20i.
Maybe the new boot animation is for the GPE phone because they're not nexus devices. Idk.
Sadly the radio has no LTE. +Mateusz Juszczyk Boot loaders don't add boot animations...+1
+LaDamian Goree That's what I assume as well. +Travis Henson It's very unlikely they'll bring back LTE since it is "illegal" as the device is not FCC certified for LTE+1
Yep. Guess we'll find out very soon. +Jason Palaszewski
Mando Garcia3 years ago
We can only rely on the LTE hack....lol+1
+Mando Garcia there is an issue with that...you can use radio .33 (the last version with working LTE) but on 4.2.2 and 4.3 there is no in-call audio without an in-call audio fix patch, and this patch no longer works on 4.3. another solution is needed
Mando Garcia3 years ago
Yes. I know . I have used the LTE... But where i am we don't have LTE yet.. So don't really need it..
Cason B3 years ago
Wheres the incall audio fix?
Floating around on XDA. Here is a link to mine (the current one that doesn't work for 4.3 but does for 4.2) on dropbox https://www.dropbox.com/s/f01so78vi35arni/cwm-mako-NoAudioFixForTMobileUSA.zip

o.k and this file opn with twrp no do any wipe,right? and after it i can install no problem the radio and the bootloader?
Joshua Patterson3 years ago
+aviel ghermezian

I would wait until the radio and bootloader are uploaded, and then just fully wipe the device, and flash them all at once, but yes, you can install it now, then wait until the bootloader and radio are released, and then just flash them.
+aviel ghermezian +Joshua Patterson they're both released already. Check the XDA threads in the General section for the Nexus 4
