Android 11 Available For Samsung Galaxy S 2 Based On LineageOS 18.1
The second version of the original Samsung Galaxy S, the Galaxy S II still has life left in it. Because Samsung Galaxy S II can get Android 11 with the illegal build of LineageOS 18.1.
Due to the open nature of Android, many older Android device owners can still get the latest version of Android. And one of the most popular custom ROMs, LineageOS, is now available.
While illegal, this is a good idea for the owners of the Samsung Galaxy S II to get a taste of the latest Android 11, 9 years after it was released.
Remarkably, this illegal LineageOS 18.1 based on Android 11 build comes as a favor to XDA Senior Members of rINanDO, ChronoMonochrome, and dozens of other developers.
In addition, it is very important to remember that this custom ROM is designed for a different version of the Samsung Galaxy S II GT-I9100. FYI, Galaxy S II came with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and was updated to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
However, if you are still hanging out with the model number of the Galaxy S II GT-I9100, then you can enjoy the latest features of the Android 11 app.
Android 11 will still make you the latest device tone. So, it’s good to see that the Galaxy S2 from 2011 can run Android 11 after 9 years since its launch is big news.
Yes, there are many things you can use on your device after the installation of LineageOS 18.1. Obviously, Wi-Fi, camera, sound, phone calls all work fine.
But you can’t make calls, sadly. Additionally, features such as GPS, FM Radio, screencasting, and a number of other features do not work in this incorrect LineageOS 18.1 version of Galaxy S II.
So, if you could take our word for it, you can install this Android 11 based LineageOS 18.1 build unofficial on your Galaxy SII only if you are what you are doing.
Otherwise, you should always take a full backup of the data stored on the device before proceeding with this process. Installation is compatible with Isolated Recovery (IsoRec).
This means you can quickly turn off this illegal LineageOS with Odin. Data backup is important because you will have to parse and clear the internal storage of your Galaxy S II while it is being installed.
Since the phone is about ten years old, you may not be using it as your daily driver. I hope you don’t know because if that’s the case then, technology is waiting for you.
