    Hey,

    I want to recover videos and pics from my nexus 4,is it possible to recover them after rooting my device.
    I have gone through the procedure and it seem while unlocking it will wipe my data.

    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to the forum..

    You should backup everything prior to rooting.

    Don't really need a toolkit for a Nexus. "fastboot oem unlock" will unlock it, then flash superuser & you're good to go. But if you want a toolkit, this is a good one: http://www.wugfresh.com

    Unlocking for the first time will erase user data... Do as Jeffery said and back everything up. Wugs kit is a must have.
