Android Nougat ROM for Nexus 4 & Nexus 5 now available. Download & Installation Instructions

While Android Nougat is not available officially for Nexus 4 and Nexus 5, we know you had expected a ROM coming sometime soon. And it is here now!! Modders at XDA Forum have been successful in porting Android Nougat ROM to both Nexus 5 and Nexus 4.

In case of Nexus 5, nearly everything is working, while Nexus 4, as expected has more difficulty in running Android Nougat. Read on for download and installation instructions below. In case you are a poweruser it may be a cakewalk for you to flash the ROMs. But for others we can just say “do it at your own risk”.
