Google Nexus gets ported to the Nougat 7.1 platform, unofficially
When the Android Nougat 7.0 was first annoucned just a few weeks ago, a lot of developers got to work instantly and started to port the software to a series of devise that were not supposed to get this bump officially.
Most of these were due to a project created by the XDA developers and named the Unlegacy-Android project which aimed to port the new software to a series of devices that were no longer supported in the sense of software.
Now, the latest one to get a bump to taste the Nougat dessert is the Galaxy Nexus and this one would not get the Nougat 7.0 but instead, the latest 7.1 that is rolling out to the Pixel devices.
For now, you would need to have had a rooted device to get this one done and note that since this is not an official update, it might not be able to turn up and stunt the same way it would on a device that is supposed to be supported by it.
Also, you would need to have a lot of patience because checking the timeline of the Galaxy Nexus in the market, you would discover that it is a five year old smartphone already and therefore, a lot of generations behind in Android technology.
