Nougat is coming to the Nexus 4 courtesy of CyanogenMod 14
You’ve got to give credit to the loyal CyanogenMod ROM team, not only are they still hard at work despite the garbage fire Cyanogen Inc has become, they’re still so committed they are about to breathe new life into the ageing Nexus 4 courtesy of CyanogenMod 14 nightlies based on Android 7.1 Nougat.
But it’s not just the Nexus 4 getting CM 14.1 love right now, with six other devices getting official nightly support already. The Chinese clone of the Nexus 5 (CAF), T-Mobile LG G3, LG G Pad 8.3, ASUS ZenPad 8.0, Sony Xperia M and Samsung Galaxy S5 (AU) already have nightlies available, and there’s an experimental build for the Nexus 4 if you want to go even more bleeding edge than nightlies.
Nightly builds are pushed out each and every day and contain all the latest code the CM ROM developers have worked on during the day. Things might be glitchy, broken or unstable, but that’s the price you pay for the latest and greatest. If that doesn’t sound like fun to you, you’re better off waiting for a stable or release candidate build instead.
