Android L developer preview successfully ported onto the Nexus 4

Nexus 4

When Google announced Android L Developer Preview, only the Nexus 5 and the 2013 Nexus 7 were said to be getting it. This came as a disappointment to customers of older Nexus devices, especially the 2012 Nexus 7 and the Nexus 4. However, with the source code being made available, it wasn’t going to take long for developers to build a version for these devices as well. The Nexus 4 is the lucky beneficiary of this new ROM today, and we don’t think the 2012 Nexus 7 will be far away either.

As expected, the ROM functions just as expected although there are a few bugs which is expected from a developer preview. While it might not be suitable for daily use, it’s clearly the users’ best shot at what the future of Android holds for them.

The final release of Android L should be made available to the Nexus 4 as hardware doesn’t appear to be a limitation here. But if you’re an impatient user who wants to try out the latest version of Android on the Nexus 4, head over to the link below and download the update. But before you do, make sure you go through the installation instructions closely. Here’s a video showing the Nexus 4 running the Android L developer preview.
