This is the canadian section. They can boot mako kernels like multiple people have told you. I don't think anyone can give a definite answer, but the N4 conversion doesn't even apply to them.

Re: Ubuntu?
I have tested ubuntu on my gnex and it's not something you want yet. It's really incomplete ( I.e. no network beside wifi, no way to enter contact, search is not working). They could have done a video and I'd have been less deceived. I wish this will still evolve but right now it's not something to you want. Btw, it even use cyanogenmod files.

Yeah, put it on my N7. It was cool, but not really even a preview.
