Close to the end of last month, we brought you word that the
Android L Preview system image for both the Nexus 5 as well as the Nexus 7 were released, but what about folks who happen to be rocking to the Nexus 4? Well, thanks to the programming wizards who make their presence known on online communities such as XDA Developers as well as at other places, the preview for Android L has already been installed successfully on the Nexus 4.
It is a given that the Nexus 4 will be on the receiving end of the official Android update later down the road, but as for the developer preview of the upgraded operating system, it will only be made available on an official basis for folks who happen to be in possession of a Nexus 5 smartphone or the Nexus 7 (2013) tablet (Wi-Fi model).
Since Android L happens to be a developer preview, one ought to take note that this more often than not translates to the presence of several bugs as well as existing development. In fact, this particular package has been dubbed as the “initial version” for the Nexus 4, so as with most of the other unofficial releases, one ought to proceed at your own risk. Folks who gave it a whirl claim that the first boot will take up approximately 20 minutes of your time, so you have been forewarned.
