Chances for the LG G3 to get Android Nougat update officially are pretty slim, and even slimmer for the US carrier variants of the device. But that doesn’t you won’t be able to boot the freshest release of Android on your LG flagship device from 2014.
Developer josegalre over at xda has already released an AOSP build of Android 7.0 Nougat for the T-Mobile LG G3 D851. The AOSP ROM is based on the latest public build of Nougat — NRD90M, and is under testing at this time.
However, if you wish to test drive the ROM on your T-Mobile LG G3, the dev has posted a recovery flashable zip of the ROM which you can flash/install to your G3 using TWRP recovery. But before that, let’s take a look at known issues with the ROM.[ecko_toggle style=”solid” state=”open” title=”T-Mobile G3 Nougat ROM Bugs & Issues”] What’s working:
- Camera (partial, auto iso disable this moment)
- Audio (partial)
- NFC [/ecko_toggle]
Note: This is an experimental build of Android Nougat for T-Mobile LG G3 based on AOSP sources. We or the original developer won’t be responsible for any damage or loss of files on your device because of flashing this ROM.Screenshots of T-Mobile LG G3 D51 running AOSP build of Android 7.0 Nougat
