Nexus 4 Users, It’s L-Preview Time

 

During the I/O 2014 keynote, Google unveiled Android L. Shortly thereafter, the Developer Preview was released for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 2013, leaving owners of other Nexus devices with just screenshots and second hand impressions. Then, a glimmer of hope came as Google released the GPL mandated code for currently supported Nexus devices. All eyes then turned towards the development community. Would they come through with a port?

Sure enough, expectations were met and XDA Senior Members sykopompos and defconoi came through with a port of the L-Preview for the Nexus 4. This was accomplished after many hours of hard work, along with help from Retired Recognized Developer ben1066 and Senior Member percy_g2 to fix the inevitable bugs that were produced. Now, the end result is a daily driver-capable ROM that mako users can be proud to use without too much hassle.

Head on over to the original thread to download the ROM. Just keep in mind that this is still a very early release, so there may be a few bugs that haven’t yet been discovered.

XDA Office Space: Frankenstein’s Perfect IM Client?

The portal’s decentralized XDA office lies in a Hangouts chatroom, where we discuss the latest developments that hit the blogosphere, critique them and figure out what we can do to add a new or original point of view. We came to love this little virtual office, which sees messaging 24/7 due to the international nature of our team. The main problem that we have faced since early on is that Hangouts is not versatile enough for in-depth discussion.   What...
