Even if this may not be the most exciting news ever – what with Android M news abounding and all – it shows that older or cheaper devices have not been completely forgotten and they are getting support.

There are still thousands of devices out there on the market that would love an update to Lollipop and few of them will get theirs before the launch of the newest Google-branded OS so this is good news.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is already one year and a half old now, which means it will be easier to find on sale or on a good deal than the fresh flagships and devices of 2015. Usually, if you are willing to flash and run custom ROMs on a device for the first, second or n-th time, you may want to pick cheaper device where your financial investment is much lower.

You may as well be tired of TouchWiz, which makes this nightly all the more appealing. You can download TWRP while you’re at it, it will help you a lot. You can find the nightly link in the source link.
