The Nexus Q has faced a tough life. Its release was put on hold while Google was redoing it. Then it was completely taken off the Play Store and seems to be cancelled. We don’t know its official fate, but the modding community can still save the few that are in existence. CyanogenMod has released the first CM10.1 nightly for the device, bringing it up to Jelly Bean 4.2 and greatly increasing its usefulness. So if you own one of these devices, you can get flashing. It should be a fun side project. However, do so at your own risk, flashing ROMs isn’t the safest procedure.
