How To Root Android N Developer Preview

Google announced the Android N Developer preview just a few days back. Latest Nexus device owners once again have proved out to be lucky to join the Android N Developer Preview league. Android 7.0 N’s developer preview is currently available for devices like Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9 and Nexus 9G. Andoird N brings a number of new features like multi-window, picture-in-picture mode, new enhanced doze mode and many other feature that you need to know about.

This time around, Google has made it a lot easier for Nexus users to upgrade their device to Android N Developer Preview.
