By  | 

One of the most popular android handsets of the moment is the LG Nexus 4 and recently the Jelly Bean 4.2.2 update started to roll out. Lots of people enjoy customising their handset and this includes those who own the Nexus device, these people may be pleased to know we have details of the Liquid Smooth ROM, which has been based on Android 4.2.2 and this offers plenty of customisation.

The official Jelly Jean update 4.2.2 for the Nexus four came just after the update for the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 devices, the newest Liquid Smooth ROM comes with more features to the stock firmware including Google GCC 4.7 Toolchain, O3, C ++11 mode, customisable lock screen buttons, along with sliders and the Chromus clock widget. There are also customisable hardware and software keys, status bar, transparent navbar and quick settings panel along with customisable power menu.

There is also a status bar mods, controls for the volume, full rotation and a battery that is customisable and much more. At the moment the ROM is only for the LG Nexus 4 and so you shouldn’t use it for any other handset. This of course is the RC1 release and this is WIP and you may come across issues and bugs. These will be fixed in future releases.

Anyone using ROMS that are custom will do so at their own risk, however may readers do like to try out custom ROMs as this is one of the bonuses to owning a device with Android on it.

If you are putting the ROM onto your device you should make a backup of your data, along with the settings with the help of the ClockworkMod recovery. Before you start you might want to make sure that there is plenty of battery on your handset. If your device shuts down while in the process of installing the ROM you could be left with a brick. Make sure that you check out everything you need before going ahead and installing.

So will you be trying out the LiquidSmooth ROM on your LG Nexus 4?
