Hi, I installed the last sailfish image for nexus4, now that multirom manager supports sailfish I want to comepletely reset my nexus4 and go back to android. Everywhere i see "reboot to recovery" but:

volume down + volume up + poweron = vibrate -> black screen -> nothing happens

Is there a way to make the device visible from adb? Any other method to go back to android?

thank you!

MultiROM is available only for Nexus 5. I'm working on MultiROM capable Nexus 4 SF image at the moment.

To switch to Android you need to get into bootloader (fastboot mode) first: hold only VolumeDown upon power on.

Then on your host PC execute: fastboot flash boot boot.img (boot.img is from the cm-10.1.3-stable-mako.zip)

from now on this will boot you into cm, where you have adb and can boot into recovery via adb restart-recovery, for any further modifications you might want.

If you still can't get into bootloader, boot to Sailfish OS, open Fingerterm, devel-su and your Developer Mode password, reboot -f and right after start holding VolumeDown button. Should bring you into bootloader.
