This is real proof that the Android developer’s community is capable of some really awesome things. The 4 year recent LG Nexus 4, which originally launched with Android 4.1 Jellybean, is indeed capable of running Android Nougat. As a refresher, the Nexus 4 runs on a 1.5Giga Hertz (GHz) quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor which is paired with just 2GB of RAM.

Recognized contributor at XDA Developers, Zaclimon has ported an Android Nougat build for the original LG-Nexus.

Wi-FI, Bluetooth, Radio Interface Layer, H/W acceleration, and Universal Serial Bus (USB) connectivity all work well on the Nougat build. The brightness slider is not working with ‘Adaptive Mode’ turned on, so be sure to flick that off. Features that are not working as of this post include NFC, Accelerometer, and the GPS antenna.

The major downside with this Nougat build is that it’s not suitable for daily use. The major downside is that the Android Nougat build is not suitable for daily use. But hey, developers have to start somewhere right?

So if you have a Nexus 4 in a drawer somewhere, whip it out, dust it off, and flash away, well… if you’re into that sort of thing.
