Finally! Thanks to XDA user vomer, now you do not have to install the firmware manually but easily install it using CWM/TWRP recovery by using a flashable zip file.
This is exact same version of Android L Preview firmware, but you can easily get it without having all of your storage erased. Now you can try it out easily by making a backup ROM, then installing the Android L Preview ROM. Once you are done, you can restore your old ROM back so definitely give this beasty L Preview a try this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
To get root with Android L Preview ROM, just install SuperSU after installing ROM, that’s it!
8/13/2004 – Android L Preview ROM has been updated to LPV81C, this is a minor update that supports Google Fit. You can do a dirty flash over the old one (but make a backup ROM just in case) but it may cause your buttons to disappear. (See Fix Here)
