    Nexus 4 Nougat ROM is available through unofficial AOSP ROM update and this is a guide which explains how to update Nexus 4 to Nougat ROM. In addition to this here is the OFFICIAL Nexus 4 CM14.1. Android Nougat was released on August 22 but Nexus 4 Android Nougat was missing and it is obvious because it’s almost 4 years old device. But after the Android Nougat Source code release now the Nexus 4 (codename: mako) Android Nougat ROM is available unofficially which is brought to you by developer zaclimon. Every Nexus 4 users must be thankful to the developers for their priceless efforts and lightning fast development. Recently we have also added the CyanogenMod 14 for Nexus 4.

    Installing a custom ROM on a Nexus device requires the bootloader to be unlocked on the Nexus phone, 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.
