The collective Android community’s jaw dropped when Android L was shown off at Google I/O 2014 and since then, only a select few devices, namely the Nexus devices (and unofficially, the HTC One M7) have had a taste of what Android’s next version is going to feel like. You can now add the LG Optimus G to that very short list as it becomes only the second non-Nexus device to receive a ‘working’ port of the Android L Developer Preview. Thanks to a bunch of clever people over at XDA, you can now install the custom ROM on your device; for the file and installation instructions, you can visit the original forum post below:
Naturally, there are still a few bugs and issues to be figured out: NFC isn’t working and the camera isn’t working exactly as intended. There are also apparently some heat issues, but there are workarounds that hopefully lessen the impact of the issue. All the same, if you have an LG Optimus G, this is a perfect opportunity to try something that a large proportion of the Android community has yet to try, so get on it.
If you could see Android L on another device next, what device would it be? Let us know your pick in the comments below.
