Since the Android Nougat Source code release, till now we have many Android Nougat ROMs available for various devices. And now this time the Nougat has arrived to LG Optimus G which is brought to you by developer Mr.MEX and xyyx. Optimus Users must be thankful to the developers for their priceless efforts and lightning fast development.
THIS IS AN ALPHA ROM. MANY OF THE FEATURES DO NOT WORK YET AND HENCE MAY NOT BE USED AS A DAILY DRIVER SOFTWARE IN ANYWAY. CHECK THE WORKING AND NON-WORKING LIST BEFORE FLASHING AND PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK.DISCLAIMER:
Installing a custom ROM requires the bootloader to be unlocked on the Optimus G, which may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data. Before proceeding further you may consider backup all data on the phone. You are the only person doing changes to your phone and I cannot be held responsible for the mistakes done by you.
