Nexus 5 is an Android smartphone launched in October 2013 LG Electronics for Google. Nexus 5 received mostly positive reviews, praising the device’s balance of overall performance and cost in comparison to other “flagship” phones, along with the quality of its display and some of the changes introduced by Android 4.4
If you are an enthusiast, then the Nexus 5 is a great phone to get. And if you are looking to grab the Android 7.1 operating system without having to buy a Google Pixel, then the Nexus 5 is a solid bet. Mobile phone developers have released the Euclidean ROM, which is based on the Android Nougat features found in the Google Pixel devices. The ROM is quite rich with features and should make a happy camper out of any Nexus 5 owner at any day of the week.
The first Step to take in upgrading Nexus 5 to Android 7.1 Nougat
The first thing you need to do is downloading the USB drivers for your Nexus 5 on your computer. Go to Menu > Settings > Applications and activate USB debugging. Furthermore, make sure your Nexus 5 is rooted. Make sure you install a TWRP or CWM recovery tool just in case something goes wrong. Make sure you’ve backed up your software with the tools mentioned above.
After securing your backup, connect the Nexus 5 to a PC using a USB cable. Copy the downloaded ROM files to the SD card, according to WCCFTECH. Remove the Android smartphone from the computer and power it off. You now need to boot into recovery mode. To do this, press and hold the Volume Up – Home and Power buttons all at the same time.
It is now time to reset your device. Do this from the TWRP/CWM menu. Go to Wipe > Factory Reset, and you’re all set to move on.
Finally, it is time to return to the recovery menu and hit the Install button. The next step is to search for the Euclidean ROM from the SD card where the firmware was copied. Confirm to kick-start the installation and watch as Android 7.1 Nougat begins to power your Nexus 5.
After the installation is complete, restart your mobile phone and have fun using the Android 7.1 Nougat which is the best version of Android and works well with the Google Pixel. However, there’s no word at this time on how well it works with the Android smartphone.
