Probably the easiest rooting method is the CF-Root. ChainFire is an elite developer at XDA and with over 9.5million downloads. He even joked that what if those 9.5 million downloads donated him $1 :). Anyhow, I am trying to Root the Android 4.4 but there are few tools used for Mac good thing Nexus 4 CF-Auto-Root of Chainfire is a cross-platform. He created 3 scripts for Windows, Mac and Linux each and it really helps. When I was a Samsung user his CF-Root method is my first choice.  So let’s begin Rooting the Nexus 4 runnong on Android 4,4 KitKat.

Warning: Rooting may cause Data Wipe, BackUp everything before you rooting your device. Misuse of this instruction may cause your device to brick thus render unusable. I am not personally responsible. Use this with your own rick.

Rooting Android 4.4 – Nexus 4

  1. Download CF-Auto-Root: Here
  2. Extract the Zip File e.g Desktop
  3. Boot your device in bootloader/fastboot mode. Usually this can be done by turning your device off, then holding VolUp+VolDown+Power to turn it on.
  4. Connect your device to your computer using USB

For Windows:

  • Run root-windows.bat 

For Mac OS X

  1.  Drag the Folder of the extracted zip to Terminal
  2. Command ‘ls’ to list down,
  3. chmod +x
  4. (drag to terminal)

For Linux
— chmod +x
— Run

- Follow the on-screen instructions – watch both the computer and the device ! If successful the device will boot and locate the SuperSU app. Note, ChainFire did not include a recovery system on this rooting. You need to install it separately if you like to add a recovery.

Note that if your device had not been unlocked before, this procedure will wipe all your data !

    But don’t celebrate yet, rooting is dangerous too. If you do not know what you’re doing you might put your smartphone to the grave.  But thanks to Nandroid, you can recover much of everything but there is also a chance that you might still break your phone, especially the initial stage. It is always advised that you need to have a fully charged system before doing rooting to avoid power failure.
