Nexus 4 Android 7.0 Update: CyanogenMod 14.1 Nightlies Coming Soon
Even though the Nexus 4 is four years old, the LG made Google smartphone has a fan following of its own. Some even call it the best made Nexus phone ever and that is a bold statement. Now, thanks to the efforts by the CyanogenMod team, a Nexus 4 Android 7.0 firmware is going to be available soon.
It is known that the official CyanogenMod Company is slowly disappearing, but the members are still developing ROMs for older Android smartphones. However, the ROMs will have bugs and may cause crashes as they are not really made for the older device.
Nexus 4 Android 7.0 Nougat Firmware
The CyanogenMod 14.1 build, which is based on Android 7.1, will soon be available for the LG Nexus 4. Those who are still rocking the Nexus 4 will definitely be excited to try out the upcoming nightly builds.
The Nexus 4 is old, but it can still run Android 7.0 without much trouble. It features a 4.7 inch 720p display, a Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2 GB of RAM and a 2100 mAh battery. Despite those ageing specs, the phone still runs the latest version of Android. Of course, there will be crashes, bugs and some features may not work.
According to Android Authority, an experimental build of the Nexus 4 Android 7.1 update is already available for download. Interested users can get it from the CyanogenMod website and give it a try.
CyanogenMod 14.1 Nightlies
The Nexus 4 is not the only device getting the latest Android 7.1 update via CyanogenMod 14.1 nightlies. Other smartphones such as the T-Mobile LG G3, the Chinese clone of Nexus 5, LG G Pad 8.3, Sony Xperia M, Asus ZenPad 8.0 and Samsung Galaxy S5 (AU), already have new nightlies available, as per Android Police.
When installing these new nightlies, it is recommended to perform a full system wipe and install the ROM as a new OS. This will ensure that the system runs the best, without any glitches.
