    DISCLAIMER:
    THIS IS AN INITIAL BUILD WHICH MAY NOT BOOT AT ALL. HAVE A BACKUP BEFORE FLASHING THIS AND TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK. Installing a custom ROM on a Nexus 4 (mako) requires the bootloader to be unlocked on the Nexus 4 (mako) phone, which may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data. Before proceeding further you may consider backup all data on the phone. You are the only person doing changes to your phone and I cannot be held responsible for the mistakes done by you.

    Has anyone flashed this successfully??
    It never booted for me. Always boots back to bootloader when I start the phone after flashing this LineageOS 15 on my Nexus 4.

    I am unable to boot any other ROM too…like: older CM14.1 or Lineage 14.1. Looks like some problem with the bootloader or the TWRP, need to look there.

    Meanwhile, please post the recovery used, if someone has booted successfully!!
