Nexus 4 gets Android L love thanks to XDA

Want Google’s upcoming version of Android, but don’t have a Nexus 5 phone or Nexus 7 tablet? If you’ve got a Nexus 4 smartphone then there’s an unofficial port of the Google Android L available for that phone.

At this point Android L for the Nexus 4 is based on the official Nexus 5 build, it’s very much a work in progress, and there may be even more bugs than you’ll find in the officially supported versions.

Members of  xda-developers figured out how to get Android L up and running on the Nexus 4 and developers have been trying to squash bugs at a furious pace.

Updates V33 and later seem to be the most stable, with support for WiFi, 3G, camera, and you can load the Google Play Store and other apps.

Make sure to backup your phone before flashing this unofficial firmware. There’s a pretty good chance you’ll want to go back to KitKat or whatever ROM your currently using. See my Android L one week later review on our youtube channel tomorrow.
