You can enjoy latest and greatest Google OS ~ Android L on Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013) officially. However, Google did not make an official one for older Nexus devices like Nexus 4. But the community had done it for all of us. Well, the Android L is a developer preview OS. Therefore, it should have bugs. Not to mention this Nexus 4 ROM which ported from it. It might have even more bugs flying around. However, if you happen to have CWM or TWRP installed on your Nexus 4, no harm to try it. Just make a backup first…

Yahoo… Android 4.4 KitKat users rejoice. You can enjoy the latest Google Camera on your Android phone and tablet. What are the new features? Lens Blur mode for SLR-like photos with shallow depth of field is the one that interest me the most. You do have Photo Spheres for immersive 360º views and Panorama mode with high resolution too. Photos took by Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013) will never be the same with Lens Blur mode.

XDA Developer, wanam has a nice customization tool for Samsung firmwares – Wanam Xposed. And he has another one which will do the same great stuffs for Nexus (AOSP) ROM – Wanam Kit.

Loaded with few features like enable numeric battery, change colour and typeface of the battery text, skip music with volume buttons in this very first release. Rest assures that more features will come.
