The developer community is keeping theNexus 4 alive by delivering an experimental build of Cyanogenmod 14.1, which is based onAndroid 7.1 Nougat.
If you’re still clutching that glass-backed LG phoneto this day and are feeling a little adventurous, remember that you do have to sacrifice a little bit of the stock Android experience in taking on this software set. Also, experimental ROM builds are typically nowhere near functional for everyday use — in fact, there could some brick-worthy bugs in there. So really, you’re looking at a piece of eye candy.
But perhaps you can get a little bit farther around Android Nougat than theHTC HD2 has. Or, you can keep on the Marshmallow train and stick to the nightly builds of Cyanogenmod 13. We may see nightlies come over to 14.1 soon enough, though.
Android 7.1.1 is expected head out to some Nexus devicesstarting December 6.
