If your latest smartphone has stopped getting official Android updates from the manufacturer, there is a high probability that you would go for CyanogenMod in order to try out the most recent Android versions. Last week, Android 6.0 Marshmallow was made available to the Samsung Galaxy S3 via CyanogenMod 13, and the Google Nexus 4 is also about to get the support for Marshmallow by Cyanogen.
LG-made Nexus 4 consumers were quite disappointed when Google announced that the smartphone will not receive an official support for the Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Many had speculated that sooner or later unofficial Marshmallow port will be made available for this device, considering its huge fan following. The awesome team of CyanogenMod have just released a nightly CM 13 build for the Nexus 4, thereby getting the latest Android version to the three-year-old smartphone. Download size is 277.01 MB and before you go ahead with this, just keep in mind that you might encounter bugs as it not yet stable.
These days, Nexus smartphones are quite popular and in high-demand. But, this wasn't always the scene: the HTC Nexus One, the Samsung Nexus S, and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus were nice smartphones, but it was the Nexus 4 that changed the game after getting launched in 2012. At that time, the Nexus 4 had the best possible specs in the Android ecosystem, but Google had a very competitive pricing at $299.
