Nexus 5 Developer Preview for Android L


This isn’t technically a custom ROM, since Google has put out the factory images for the Nexus 5 already. But this developer has made it a flashable zip, making it easier to update your device to the developer preview of Android L. So I thought it was worth sharing. You can flash the zip through recovery which is sweet.
