Android 7.0 Nougat source code released
Are you hoping to get your Android 7.0 Nougat update? Nexus owners are already getting the sweet treat, but the rest of us will have to wait in line. In fact, some of you will be lucky to get it in a few months! Regardless, Android 7.0 Nougat is not out of your reach. Those of you who don’t like waiting for manufacturers and carriers can take the third-party ROM route.
This is why tinkering enthusiasts will be happy to know Google has released the Android 7.0 Nougat source code. This means developers can get started on updating their software… and they certainly have. We know CyanogenMod has begun to integrate Nougat into CyanogenMod 14.0 on the Nexus 5X.
