Nexus 4 Not Supported In AOSP For Now

We have some bad news for you early Nexus 4 adopters: It isn’t supported in AOSP. JBQ has said that the “Nexus 4 is not supported in AOSP at the moment: no source files, no binaries.” Considering it’s a Nexus device, this is extremely disappointing. The Nexus 4 joins the Nexus 7 3G in not being supported by AOSP, making this launch far from flawless. However, a reason was given for the N7′s absence: Google has not been able to license the GSM stack for AOSP yet.

JBQ has not commented on what the reason is for the N4 not being supported, but it’s probably some sort of licensing too. I wish Google had gotten it out of the way early on, though it might have been out of their control. So I guess we’ll just have to wait.
