“The Galaxy Nexus Won’t Survive The Jump To L” Says CyanogenMod

“The Galaxy Nexus Won’t Survive The Jump To L” Says CyanogenMod

Even phone reaches it’s end eventually, and in the case of the Galaxy Nexus, that end technically came with the release of Android 4.4 KitKat. However the phone still lived on thanks to the developer support of popular ROMs like CyanogenMod. With L being the next step into the future of Android, where will the trusty old Gnex stand? Well, sadly it seems that it won’t.

Recently a commit to CM’s open source code suggested that the Galaxy Nexus would not be upgraded. CyanogenMod’s Abhisek Devkota explained that this was due to the aging and unsupported TI OMAP processor inside. Developers could still continue with the device, but because CyanogenMod lacks a full time maintainer that would be assigned to solving problems with each build of CyanogenMod for the device. Support could be maintained if a maintainer is found however, but even that wouldn’t last too long. 

So it’s finally time. Let’s take a moment to remember the good old Galaxy Nexus in all it’s glory. Did you own a Galaxy Nexus? What was your favorite part of owning it? Let us know in the comments.
