It seems LG have gotten away with yet another proprietary release, even a Nexus. With 4.2 being pushed into AOSP Jean-Baptiste stated that the Nexus 4 will not be AOSP:
Nexus 4 is not supported in AOSP at the moment:
files, no binaries
Which raises questions as to why a Nexus device (which generally are all AOSP) is not in the open-source project. That means it
is going to be more difficult for custom ROMs to be made due to the lack of code. Also, there does not seem to be much support for the source coming any time soon:
I can’t comment on the future of Nexus 4 in AOSP, sorry.
So for those of you who did not manage to get a Nexus 4 and love your custom ROMs, how is this going to affect your decision?
