There are binaries for Android 4.4.4, but I'm guessing they'll need to be changed for Android L.

Praying for @lichti1901 to be successful

@simms22 Could you help me with porting issues?

merging L with 444 didn't succeed

BTW, what are you trying to flash? the only time I had a status 7, I went into the bootloader from recovery(twrp), then back into recovery from the bootloader, then flashed again and it worked.

Unhappy Sad Day

@simms22 I'm trying to learn how to port with my growing older by the minute Nexus 4 before I switch over to something new with the Nexus line in jeopardy. I attempted to port over the Nexus 5 4.4.4 version to the Nexus 4 so that I had Google Now with a swipe to the left. I never really used the "Ok Google" function

Part of a stepping stone to port over Android L Developer's Preview for the Nexus 5 found here

Nooooooooooooooooo! @lichti1901

I use the google launcher and have the swipe to the left feature on my nexus 4. no modding anything. by default. why are you missing it? did you enable it? long press home screen, settings, turn google now on. everything is identical on my nexus 4 and 5.

Hubbadahubbada! What? I read elsewhere that someone has the "Ok Google" feature from the updated Google Search app. I haven't heard of swipe left. Going to do some testing, get back to you with more details @simms22

I guess, could you help me with porting Android L

I'll be honest, I don't think L is ready to be ported. I ran it three times on my n5. it is nice, but its buggy as heck. and there is no real source for it(to use). what's published is very incomplete. it also has kernel changes and new binaries that aren't published. you can't build a nexus 5 ROM from it.
