Nexus 4 Not Recognized By Pc

4 posts in this topic

I am currently using CM 10.1.2 Stable.

When I plug my Nexus 4 into my computer via USB, the phone charges, but my computer does not acknowledge my device. I've tried using different computers, and different cords to no avail. When I look at the Device Manager on Win7 64 bit, there is no indication of any portable device connected.

I've installed the Universal ADB drivers, I've turned on USB debugging, I've switched the Storage settings from MTP to PTP and vice versa. I've tested different Kernels. I removed drivers and re-installed them. I made sure no other drivers for other phone types were on my computer. I've gone through numerous forums as to what causes this problem. Numerous users share the same problem. The users mentioned all use different ROMs, including CM 10.1.

Before I flashed CM 10.1, I used stock 4.2.1 and I had no issues.

I am beginning to wonder if this is a problem with Android 4.2.2. No one seems to have a definitive answer.

Any help/feedback would be most appreciated.

At some point did you enable fast-charging? That disables the USB component of the port so that you can get more power from chargers to charge the phone faster. You can check this with an app like Trickster Mod.

Also, it may be worth trying to revert back to stock. If you still have the issue there with multiple computers/cables, then it could be your port itself going bad.

I had this problem at one point and had to uninstall the Universal ADB driver (choose to delete the driver files when removing) to get Windows to recognize the device in other than ADB mode (device/file system). I then plugged it back in, let Windows find the appropriate device driver and it showed up as a device/file system as it had previously. This was on Windows 7 Pro sp1 x64.

Hope it helps

good luck

I don't recall enabling fast-charging but I will look into it. I will also remove drivers and attempt to connect on other than ADB mode.

Thank you for the feedback.
