The Google Nexus 4 and the Google Nexus 10 have only been on sale for a short time, but this hasn’t stopped hackers from rooting the two devices. The two have been rooted to take control of Jelly Bean.
People have been tinkering with the devices as soon as they got their hands on the Nexus smartphone and tablet. The first method of accessing the Nexus 4’s root settings has been posted by Addictive Tips’ Haroon Raja. ClockWorkMod Recovery has also posted a new version, which is an easier way to change settings, change ROMs, or flash the system.
ClockWorkMod is the easiest way to root your Google Nexus 4 or Google Nexus 10. Otherwise, you’ll have to go through the long process of unlocking the devices’ bootloader. Then you’ll have to flash an insecure boot image. Finally, you’ll have to manually transfer root files on either the phone or tablet through the Android Development Bridge.
Rooting your device allows you to gain access to Android’s core settings. This means having the ability to do things like overclocking the device’s processor, installing custom apps, installing other versions of Android, and gaining access to features that is usually restricted.
Please take note, however, that rooting is not for everybody. It is only for the more experienced user. Doing so will void your warranty or even brick the device if something goes wrong. Remember to back up your device if ever you plan on rooting your Google Nexus 4 or Google Nexus 10.
If it’s only now you’ve decided to get your hands on the Nexus 4 or Nexus 10, we’re sorry to say that Google Play has ran out of stock. We’ll keep you posted once the online store has replenished its stock.
