A few months ago, Nexus 4 owners felt a little bit abandoned when their darling device was left out of the Marshmallow party. While the Nexus 5, 6, 7 (2013), and 9 all got their new dessert flavor, the Nexus 4 was left with a used Lollipop that didn't taste just as sweet as it did when it was first released. But fret no more, you old-school Nexus warriors, CyanogenMod is here to save you from descent into irrelevancy thanks to the latest CM 13 nightly.
Released a few hours ago, this CM 13 nightly for the Nexus 4 (mako) weighs about 277MB and brings a build of Marshmallow to the device. As a first nightly, you shouldn't expect much in terms of stability but you can still give it a try and keep an eye on it until it reaches a monthly snapshot stage. Of course, XDA's forums are swarming with Marshmallow ROMs for the Nexus 4, but it's nice to see CM supporting it officially as well.
Whether you're still holding on to your Nexus 4 because it's a fantastic device or you keep one as a backup phone, you can now update it to CM 13 at the source link below and don't forget to grab your GApps zip package on the way.
