CyanogenMod 13 nightlies — which are based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow — have been rolling out for a couple of months now, and now you can grab the custom Android ROM for the Nexus 4. While this may not be a vanilla build of Android Marshmallow, it is yet another method of bringing the latest that Android has to offer to a phone that’s more than three years old…

You can head over to the CyanogenMod website to find nightlies for the Nexus 4 and other legacy devices.

If you would rather go with an unofficial build of AOSP Marshmallow, we told you a few months ago about a developer that managed to get vanilla 6.0 running on the Nexus 4. You can download that image from Dmitry’s website. To install the factory image, simply follow our guide. That guide assumes you already have the ADB tools installed on your computer. If you need the ADB tools, head over and download the Android SDK.
