  • The Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 were made available this week in stores and they have been running out of stock at some retailers, including Google Play, apparently. Now after the developers have had a bunch of hours alone with the devices they’ve already come up with their very own root methods and ClockworkMod recovery for them.

    LG Nexus 4 and Samsung Nexus 10 are now prone to rooting, although frankly speaking I can’t see why one would root a device that’s not loaded with bloatware or has any hidden features to reveal. There are two ways to proceed here: one is booting an insecure image and transferring root files manually via ADB, while the other involves ClockworkMod recovery and flashing a zip file that contains root files. The ROM Manager procedure is not working for any of the two new Nexus devices, apparently.

    Koush is responsible with the ClockWorkMod recovery for Nexus 4, so he’s the developer to thank for this evolution. All you need to do is download the latest official CWM recovery from this site, rename it to recovery.img, enable Android debugging from Settings/Developer options and then connect the device to the PC via USB and install the needed drivers. More info in the XDA guide here.
