After the source code release of Android Nougat just a couple of days back we have now many Android Nougat Custom ROMs for Nexus 6p. Since then we have the Debloated AOSP ROM for Nexus 6p and the Official Nougat OTA release for Nexus 6p and now we have another custom ROM, the WETA 7.2 ROM based on AOSP and is brought to you by Mentalmuso. This is packed with many audio mods (audiophiles) and many more things listed below in the features section.DISCLAIMER:
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.ROM FEATURES:
