Google took a huge leap when it released Android 5.0 to the public and bought tons of new features and additions with it. It was released as a preview officially, for the Nexus 5 and the Nexus 7. The sole purpose of this preview was not only to showcase the upcoming Android version, but to build a stable version of Android, with the help of its users. This way, everybody could prove itself to be a part of it, which in its own way is a huge accomplishment.
Here at XDA Developers, we’re aiming ourselves in porting the same to our beloved Nexus 4. Since, the beginning of the trials, a lot of errors were tackled and resolved with pure dedication of both, us (developers) and the users. The teamwork has resulted in creating a near-perfect port for the Google Nexus 4, which is highly voted to be used as a daily driver.

After a long thought, we have decided to split the project into two different parts. The first one is based off of Nexus 6 dump (LRX08) containing the complete N6 framework and apps (S-builds). The second one is based on the latest official Nexus 5 preview image. This is being done for a better user experience because some users prefer the N6 framework and apps, giving the latest Android Lollipop experience, and others like to follow a more close-to-google walkthrough given by the N5 preview image (P Builds).
Huge thanks to following members to help me get this port to other devices that I don’t own. For testing and trying things I couldn’t.jolinnard for the data on script.
Thank you to @DJBhardwaj for the op overhaul, don't worry, I will eventually butcher it like the last one

Since it’s a testing preview phase, it is advised to Clean flash every time you install a new update. While dirty flash and updating could also work depending upon the update to be flashed.
