The Android L developers’ preview may have been released yesterday, but unless you own a Nexus 5 or Nexus 7 2013 you likely weren’t able to get in on the flashing fun. Thankfully not all hope is lost for everyone to get a bit of a taste of Android L goodness.
XDA member ivan123 decided to dig into his full system dump and pull out all of the juicy bits, including apps, wallpapers, and even the new Android boot animation. Some of these goods can only be installed using flashable .zip files, some are standard APKs, and some aren’t meant to be flashed at all. Here’s a full list of each:
Apps, APKs and flashables
- 61 APKs of various system apps, including Chrome, Calculator, Calendar, Drive and more. Note that many of these .APK files aren’t meant to be user-facing, and some of them may be no different than what is already installed on your device. Proceed with caution.
- Android L Keyboard (.APK)
- Google Play Services 5.0 (flashable .ZIP, needed for many of the new apps to work properly)
- Google Play Store “Velvet” (.APK)
