    Rootjunky has put together a No Wipe fastboot flashable version of the Android N Developer Preview Build 4 which was released today. This allows you to flash your Nexus device to the latest version of Android N without wiping data. You will be able to flash this from any firmware without first returning your device to stock.

    The stock image from Google is broken and won't flash properly in fastboot. You end up having to flash the stock image piece by piece. With RootJunky's file you can simply flash the flash-all script. This has to be the easiest way to update to the latest version of Android N Dev Preview 4!

    To download the file head to the link below. Find your device. Click on "Android N Preview", then download the "NPD56n-beta2" file. Extract the file and run flash-all in fastboot.

    That's why. Preview 4 or beta 2. Naming changed.
