[Oreo] Colt OS 8.0.0 Custom Firmware For LG Nexus 4
ColtOS is an amazing custom firmware for Nexus 4. It brings Android 8.0 Oreo on this device. Android Stock and official firmware are great, but with custom ROMs, you’ll get a better device with tons of Customization features and lots of system tweaks to boost your device performance. This is clearly one of the benefits of rooting your Android smartphone. You can update Nexus 4 to Android 8.0.0 ColtOS Oreo custom firmware following the step by step guide below.

[Oreo] Colt OS 8.0.0 Custom Firmware For LG Nexus 4

This ROM is meant for Nexus 4 (occam) alone and I am not sure if it will work on the other variants of the Nexus 4 on other carriers. So if you want to try it, make sure you take a full Nandroid backup.

Disclaimer: This site or author will not be held responsible, if you end up with a damaged device. Flash ROM at you own risk.
