The Google Nexus 4 is a device that we seem to take pity on for some reason; developers have been very indecisive about rolling out the Marshmallow update to users of the device, and they finally did.

There are two variations of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow ROM; the one from Aldrin Holmes and the other from Dmitry Grinberg. Follow these steps carefully and you’ll be on your way to holding your very own Nexus 4 being updated to the current times.

1. Start by transferring the TWRP file to the device and update/install it.

2. Turn off the device and switch it on to Recovery Mode (Volume Up + Volume Down + Power Button).

3. Wait for the TWP UI to load up, then choose Wipe > Factory Reset.

4. Next, transfer one of the ROM-GApps into the device and reboot to enter Recovery Mode again.

5. If you’ve followed all the steps above, you should be proudly holding your Nexus 4 updated to the latest Android Marshmallow.

Actually these ROMs have been available for almost four months. This is good information, but it shouldn’t be filed under “news” as there is nothing new here.
