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)

      Thanks for the comprehensive explanation, Ms Draper. I really appreciate it and understand a lot better the arguments for separating what’s logged, what’s not, etc. And I had no idea there were was another ubetlu-runated channel that wasn’t logged! As you point out, that does make one raise an eyebrow.

    On the XDA page for this ROM it states that the radio isn’t included and to flash it from the download link but all of the links are dead, do you have the radio zip that you can upload for us? I keep losing mobile data randomly and think that may be the cause

    Hello blogger, i found this post on 25 spot in google’s search results.
    I’m sure that your low rankings are caused by hi bounce rate.
    This is very important ranking factor. One of the biggest reason for high bounce rate is due to visitors hitting the
    back button. The higher your bounce rate the further
    down the search results your posts and pages will end up,
    so having reasonably low bounce rate is important for increasing your rankings naturally.
    There is very handy wp plugin which can help you. Just search in google for:

    Seyiny’s Bounce Plugin
