He developers behind LineageOS continue releasing new builds to keep old smartphones alive. Following the arrival of the new kernel for the “old man” Galaxy Star, the developer team launched LineageOS 14.1 for the Samsung Galaxy S2, a handset released in 2011.
The system takes nothing less than Android 7.1.1 for the device. The version compatible with the software is the I9100, the same one that was made available in Brazil. As a result, Samsung’s old top of the line becomes one more to gain an unofficial upgrade.
Remember that the procedure to install LineageOS is the same as for CyanogenMod and any other ROM. That means you should have some technical knowledge about Android modifications – including bootloader unlocking and custom recovery installation – to proceed.
The ROM made available for download is still experimental, so wait for some bugs until the stable build is released.
