Galaxy Nexus is otherwise known as tuna and hence this is for Tuna Nougat ROM (maguro, toro, toroplus nougat rom). As always this Nougat ROM for Galaxy Nexus is brought to you by developer Ziyan, MWisBest and Hashcode. Although the Galaxy Nexus is 5 years old device but the unofficial Nougat ROM is quickly released by these developers.
