Heads up Android developers: the source code for the Android L Developer Preview is now available in AOSP (well, populating anyway). While the kernel source and drivers weren’t provided, we’re sure Android’s community of developers are already chomping at the bit to sink their teeth into this.
Of course, only the Nexus devices are supported with code for the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (WiFi and LTE), Nexus 7 2013 (WiFi and LTE), and Nexus 10. What can you do with this? Not much unless you know your way around Android code. Expect an influx of custom ROMs to hit the forums in the coming days — especially for devices like the Nexus 4 and 7 (2012) that we don’t expect will officially see Android L roll out over-the-air.
