Android It is, without a doubt, one of the best mobile operating systems that has ever existed (what can we tell you …). With endless updates that increasingly integrate more configuration and customization possibilities, the world of ROMs allows these new features to be brought closer to terminals with several years on the market. The best example is the availability of Android 7.1 for the Nexus 4 thanks to CyanogenMod.
One of the problems with Google’s operating system is that not all Android devices update at the speed or when they should. In fact Android Nougat It is still present in less than 1% of devices while Android Lollipop, an operating system with more than two years, is still the most installed version.
Fortunately, older smartphones, such as this one Google Nexus 4, continue to update to new versions of Android thanks to custom ROMs. Reciently, the folks at Cyanogen have released the corresponding nightly or experimental version of CyanogenMod 14 for him Google Nexus 4, based on Android 7.1 Nougat.
Install CyanogenMod on the Nexus 4
The availability of Android 7.1 for the Nexus 4 from Google is a joy for all terminal owners who now have access to the latest and greatest changes that the operating system update offers. However, remember that this nightly version of CyanogenMod 14 It is still in its infancy so it is likely that you will encounter performance problems and application glitches when working with the ROM.
There is also a version of CyanogenMod 14 with Android 7.1 for the Nexus 4 called “experimental” which, while it can present more bugs, allows the user to enjoy exclusive functions. However, we only recommend installing this version if you want to test the ROM and have another terminal to use regularly.
