    Hi all,

    I know the N4 has enough source code in AOSP and elsewhere to be able to build an AOSP ROM, but it doesn't quite seem "official" and doesn't offer that undeniable security of "Nexus support" that many have come to know and love. Now, I know people have said it's due to the Qualcomm chip being so new that it would take time to officially work it in, and that it'll likely come around with 4.2.2. Even still, I'm paranoid (just having bought an N4 myself). Is anyone else worried about the N4's future? Or is it just buyer's paranoia?

    I'd love to hear some thoughts on this!

    I think you're worrying too much. It has the Nexus name. It will be supported longer than any other phone that has come out with this phone. Don't fret, the reason about the chip being new is exactly the issue. Nothing else really needs to be said. Hope you enjoy your new phone!
