Nexus 4 Owners Gets Fully Working Android L Port

 
Google only released the Android L system images for Nexus 5 and the 2013 version of the Nexus 7 tablet, that limit has now been breached as some hacky developers have gotten the preview of Android L to work successfully on the previous Nexus phone, the Nexus 4. If you own a Nexus 4 still and have been want to try out the Android L Preview for yourself, there is a  little video that they uploaded to show just how everything works on the Nexus 4 so you can see that it’s in good working condition. Just like with the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 devices, it’s important to remember that this is a “preview” version of the software build so there are going to be some bugs, that is the point. If you notice anything that doesn't work quite right don’t be surprised.
Yes, the Nexus 4 will reportedly be on the list of supported devices, however when it comes to Nexus phones that is as far back as it goes, which also shouldn't be a surprise since the Galaxy Nexus didn't get KitKat officially either. XDA Thread link : Android L Port
If you want try it anyway and are OK with the bugs that will undoubtedly show up as a result of loading on this software, than you can find all the instructions you need at the XDA link. We did post the video for you below so you can watch that as well which we absolutely recommended if you’re moving forward with this. As always make sure to do a backup of anything you want saved just in case, and it would be a great idea to make sure you have a backup of the system image should something go wrong.
