Do you remember the Nexus 4? You probably don’t. The LG-made Nexus 4 is a four year old device, released in October 2012 under Google’s now defunct Nexus program. The guys at CyanogenMod are hard at work, and they have put out some nightly builds for the old device. You can flash Nougat at your own risk, but what’s there left to do with a four year old phone anyways?
The Nexus 4 is a device with a 4.7-inch HD screen powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro and 2GB RAM, which was pretty robust for a phone at that time. It came out with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, but was upgraded up to Android 5.1 Lollipop. Now, it will get a taste of Android 7.1 Nougat care of CM14.1.
But it’s not just the Nexus 4 getting some Nougat flavors, some other old devices have gotten official nightly builds as well. These include the Chinese variant for the Nexus 5, the T-Mobile LG G3, LG G Pad 8.3, Asus ZenPad 8.0, the Sony Xperia M, and the Australian variant of the Samsung Galaxy S5.
Remember that these are all still nightlies, and as such some features might still not be working, or there will be bugs here and there. If you want to give these a go, check out the flashable nightly builds at the official CyanogenMod download site.
