Pagz, 16 Nov 2014How do you install zip fileCredit : Reddit
Those who want to do side load you can refer this
Nexus 4 KTU84P > LRX21T
Do I need root for this?
No, you can use this method on any stock Nexus 4 device.
Will I lose my data?
No, all your data and apps will stay on your device.
Will I receive future OTAs?
Yes, for sure!
Can I install this update without a PC?
If you have installed a custom recovery then yes. If you don't have a custom recovery or don't even know what this is, then please use your computer.
What is this?
It's the official update from google. You can update your device without waiting for the update to roll out for you.
Update Guide for those of you who are not developers
Uninstall any modification (e.g. XPosed, Adblock, etc.). Or else, the update will fail. Note, that XPosed is not compatible to Android 5 right now. So you can't install it after the update.
Install Minimal ADB
Install Android USB Driver
Enable developer options, then enable USB Debugging
Download the OTA file (link above)
Now follow these steps:
Connect your Nexus 4 via USB to your PC
Open Minimal ADB, enter "adb reboot recovery" and press [return]
After the reboot, you will see the recovery screen (It says "no command"). Tap the [power] and [volume up] keys at the same time. A menu should pop up now.
If step 3 failed, just retry until the menu pops up.
Use the volume buttons to select "apply update from adb" and select it with the [power] button.
*** Back in Minimal ADB enter "adb sideload ", (don't forget the space after sideload) then drag the update file onto the command prompt. This will automatically insert the filename for you. Now press [return] and wait.
Your phone should reboot now and start optimizing the installed apps.
*** If step 6 fails, this additional driver should help you out: Compatibility Driver
